Comments on: Whom does God protect? the practical spirituality of unconditional love Tue, 27 Jul 2010 11:12:14 +0000 hourly 1 By: SP Sharma Fri, 25 Jul 2008 05:32:43 +0000 In this world each entity in human form descends with a determination to fulfill worldly aspirations like becoming a wealthy person, earn name and fame, seek salvation, etc. Even God incarnates with certain set objectives and for the fulfillment of these objectives he is directed circumstantially. Even an incarnated God in human body behaves as if He is a common man and few people are able to identify Him as such. Following is an example for your perusal:

In an organization there is the owner and many workers. A few workers are so sincere that they are prepared to do any kind of work either in the interest of the organization or at the behest of the owner. Other workers work according to set rules and regulations and there is no sincerity. They won’t mind leaving the organization if their self-interest is not fulfilled or some better opportunity elsewhere is available. Naturally, the owner knows sincere persons. He protects and supports them, even overlooks their shortcomings.

In my article Arjuna was a surrendered soul and it was the duty of Lord Krishna to protect him while Abhimanyu might have aspired after getting a certificate in bravery. He is still remembered for his bravery. Since the concept of rebirth is accepted in eastern religions, hence there is no problem to sacrifice one life for such an aspiration.

Thus, God protects surrendered souls and lets others follow their aspirations. Fulfillment of aspirations, however, depends upon the record of earlier lives.

I understand my reply may raise some more questions in your mind but if you go through some of my articles you may get satisfied to some extent. You are welcome to ask anything more.

Thanks for your nice comment.

By: IJNA Tue, 22 Jul 2008 16:15:34 +0000 I wondered today did God really make any effort in saving souls alive.I guess because sometimes as a life long Christian it has been all I’ve know, but in this journey I find that life is a constant battle and the only thing that makes it easier is having a relationship or connection of the knowledge of God. But today I really wondered why God allows some people to die even though they believe in Him.(I know that we all will die someday. So Sharma I appreciated your comment, but you said that Lord Krishna save one guy because he believed in him and the other he allowed to perish because he choise his own path. You may not be Christain but I wonder if you can tell why Our Omnipresent, Omnicient, Omnipotent God will seem to act in like manner as a human Lord.Yes I believe he gives us free will.May he forgive me and have mercy on my questioning spirit this morning.But, please attempt to help me put my concerns to rest.
