I discovered Jesus when my spiritual eyes were opened. I am older than Jesus and a lot more educated than him I have access to the Internet and have read hundreds of books. I doubt Jesus had read a single book in his life. There were no book in print when he lived. Despite all the advantages that I have compared to Jesus, when I discover a spiritual truth I realize he had spoken of it already. How could he know these things if he was not connected to a spiritual source? They are unfortunately hidden. The Bible is like a gold mine, which means most of it is dirt. You need to have a spiritual eye to be able to see the gold. Miners know that not every rock that shines contain gold.
You say Muslims would rather become atheist than Christian. That is fine with me. I am not here to promote Christianity. When I was an atheist I did not promote atheism. I am a rationalist. I base my beliefs on reason. At this moment I am spiritually a Christian, ethically a Buddhist and philosophically a Hindu. But each person has to choose his or her own path. If atheism is for you, that is fine with me. Even if you are an atheist, I encourage you to be a humanist atheist. Without that moral component, atheism can be very dangerous. Materialistic atheism wreaked havoc in the last century. When I was an atheist, I was a humanist atheist. I don't see anything wrong in that. Now that I have gained a new spiritual insight, it no longer satisfies me. It was a necessary step in my personal evolution.
But in Christianity there is no death. The body dies but the soul is eternal.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
1 John 5:13-14
I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.
You think God is distinct from his creation like a carpenter from what he creates. In my view the creation and God are the same thing. Everything is energy and that energy is God. The universe is conscious and extremely intelligent. Yes you can still pray to God, as I do now. You can still call God your heavenly father, as I do now. But at the same time I know God is in me and I am in God. I am never apart from my source, even though at this moment I am blinded by the dense matter. The purpose of life is to live it. That is all. We don't have to do anything else, but to live our life and be happy, makes others also happy, bring joy and laughter where there is sorrow, bring peace where there is war, bring love where there is hate, bring understanding where there is ignorance, and just be. God is experiencing himself through us, in the same way the ocean experiences the land through the water molecules that it sends out. Imagine that the rain drops bring back to the ocean all their experience.
This person whom you call husband says you are materialist for wanting to build a home and think about your future. He is not expressing an extremist view. This is very much the mindset of the mainstream and moderate Islam. Please see see this article where I have shown what the two biggest luminaries of Islam of all times al Gazzali and Rumi denigrated women for thinking of \"material things.\" http://alisina.org/blog/2012/08/03/the-place-of-w...
