    Can there be a perfection that we have no access to?

    A perfection is like an unattainable dream, it exists as an image for us to follow, however truly only has an access by us if we are enlightened enough of our own perfection.

    An ideal world, an ideal mind, a belief that's strong, and dream thats blind.

    This might be better suited for a straight philosophical discussion than one about the social phenomenon of religion, so I'm moving it.

    A task, fully devoted to its purpose.

    If God is a scientist that means:

    1) he's miserable 90% of the time
    2) he's a fake, sleazy asshole not to be trusted

    1 and 2 are sprinkled, as a rule, with horse dose of snobbery.


    Looking around and muddling through life one could get a grasp of the divine essence, if any. If that alone does not depress you enough, please, o God, please, don't be anything like an average grant hunter.

    You treat God without respect, yet God will treat you respect, you treat God with respect, and God will treat you with respect oncemore.

    My request was obviously directed at the OP.

    Absurd.

    Bible said it. For all sinners are forgiven, and all are equal before God.

    The god of The Holy Babble has no respect for anyone, including itself.

    The God of a book, is a God of people who stand behind the book, their thoughts encapsulating the work of the book are the conglomeration of their beliefs and thus respect to their own traditions and morals.

    A book without respect would not stand a test of time and be known for millenia.

    Bible said all sinners are forgiven, you must be dreaming. Homicidal maniac called Jehovah was really brutal, he said nothing about forgiveness and eternal life/damnation, he just whacked whomever his heart desired. Sweet baby Jesus invented eternal hell for not quite forgiven sinners. As for me, maniacal homicidal Jehovah is little bit more likable, no bull, straightshooting kind of deity.

    you make your own world and dwell in it. The world you made will be your heaven or hell.

    Perfection doesn't exist. Even if it were to exist, if we had access to "it", "it" would no longer be perfect.

    Also if that were the case, we could go ahead and consider ourselves perfect.

    Hard to achieve IMHO since we have floated far far away from the original laws of nature and been finding ways to avoid getting hurt.

    Any human or societies laws can be bend or broken. But natural laws stand firm and there is nothing we can do to override it without initiating a long term consequence. We can try to conform back to laws of nature provided we know each one of it very well. Thats gonna create a lot of trouble for everyone since humans have a hard time dealing with reality.
