Spirituality and Religion


Spiritual beliefs include the relationship to a superior being and are related to an existential perspective on life, death, and the nature of reality. 11. Religious beliefs include practices/rituals such as prayer or meditation and engagement with religious community members.

Many people today define themselves as ‘spiritual but not religious’, but is … You can add to this list smaller things: your judgmental neighbour who … ‘I believe in God,’ she said.

Spirituality is the shorthand term used in Western society to talk about a person’s relationship with God. For many people, how they think about religion and spirituality is certainly guided by what they see and do in their congregations.

While specific spiritual views are a matter of faith, research has demonstrated some of the benefits of spirituality and spiritual activity. … One study found that everyday spiritual experiences helped older adults better cope with negative feelings and enhanced positive feelings.

spirituality” as applied to biblical faith is here understood to refer to that relationship between God and man that can be summed up under four headings : holiness, the gift of the Spirit, life in the Spirit and the discipline of the Spirit.

Religion encourages humanity to be good, to help one another, to be tolerant and respectful and urges self restraint and generosity among other things. On the positive side it makes people better human beings in the main. Religion is a blessing and a curse to society. That is the short answer.

The Garden Of Eden

The Garden of Eden, also called the Terrestrial Paradise, or simply Paradise, is the biblical “Garden of God” described in the Book of Genesis and the Book of Ezekiel. Genesis 13:10 refers to the “garden of God”, and the “trees of the garden” are mentioned in Ezekiel 31:9.


The beautiful garden containing the tree of life, where God intended Adam and Eve to live in peaceful and contented innocence, effortlessly reaping the fruits of the Earth. The garden also contained the tree of knowledge of good and evil, from which Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat.

The Garden in Eden was, therefore, like heaven on earth. Although sin didn’t yet exist on the earth when God originally created the Garden in Eden, it was God’s revelation of his beauty, perfection, peace — and really every aspect of his wonderful nature — to mankind.

Some claim that the name “Eden” derives from the Akkadian term edinu, which means ‘plain’. In the biblical tradition, the garden is often alluded to by the biblical authors as a luxuriant place, which is why it is sometimes called the “Garden of God.” However, it is the biblical definition of the garden that is our concern here. Adam was the first man created by God in his image. After God saw the loneliness of Adam as “not good,” God caused a deep sleep on Adam and created Eve (the first woman) out of Adam’s rib as his helper (Genesis 2:20-23). To properly understand what the garden is to the narrator of Genesis, it is important to discern its location, the characters playing roles in it and what took place in it. All these contribute to our understanding of the biblical definition of the “Garden of Eden.”

About The Rain

What causes rain? Clouds are made of water droplets. Within a cloud, water droplets condense onto one another, causing the droplets to grow. When these water droplets get too heavy to stay suspended in the cloud, they fall to Earth as rain.

Spiritual warfare is the Christian concept of fighting against the work of preternatural evil forces. It is based on the biblical belief in evil spirits, or demons, that are said to intervene in human affairs in various ways.

Imagery of spiritual warfare is displayed in the Book of Revelation when after the War in Heaven (Rev. 12:7), the beasts and kings of the earth wage war against God’s people (Rev. 19:19), and a final battle ensues with Satan and the nations of the earth against God himself (Rev. 20:8).
