Are certain people servants of GOD, or part-time servants of themselves? Who are the real servants of GOD?

I am not the best judge around. Even if I’m the best judge, I’m not GOD. And even if I’m not GOD, I still will still make an observation that, without good reasons, many people assume that the servants of temples, mosques, churches and many religious movements are servants of GOD. In fact, a lot of people believe that the attendees of temples, mosques, churches, amongst others, are the real servants of GOD.

The experiences (coupled with the body of knowledge) I have acquired in life have convinced me that it is not necessary for someone to be religious before they can be regarded as a real servant of GOD.

Don’t get me wrong: attending temples, mosques and churches could nourish the spirit and give enlightenment, amongst other things. However, being a real servant of GOD goes way beyond just participating in religious activities; it also entails obeying the commandments of GOD, and giving love and service to our fellow human beings—and the world in general.

But first, a reflection on some important words of wisdom—in addition to the obvious fact that if we love one another, then GOD surely dwells in us

Although I’m from a Christian background, I believe that the scriptures of other religious books have passages that are almost similar in meaning with the following biblical passages:

  • 1st John 4: 12: “No man hath seen GOD at any time. If we love one another, GOD dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.”
  • 1st John 4: 16: “And we have known and believed the love that GOD hath to us. GOD is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in GOD, and GOD in him.”
  • 1st John 4: 20:  “If a man say, I love GOD, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love GOD whom he hath not seen?”
  • 1st John 4: 21: “And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth GOD love his brother also.”

Important question: “Is it right to disregard (or not accept as servants of GOD) those who believe in GOD, abide by GOD’s commandments, and love or and help their fellow human beings, even though they never had the opportunity to hear about, believe in, or accept any of the messengers of GOD?”

There are certain people in each religion who believe that the scriptures from their religious books—which convey similar meaning with the biblical scriptures quoted above—apply only to the groups of people who personally accept either Mohammed, Buddha, Jesus, etc., as the ultimate messenger of GOD.

I find it hard to stick with this belief because history and experience have proven that regardless of religious affiliation, many people who attend temples, mosques and churches disobey GOD’s commandments, qdon’t have any empathy and love for their fellow human beings, even though they spend countless hours listening to messages of love and GOD in their respective religious congregations.

So, I’m left to believe that a real servant of GOD is anyone who abides by GOD’s commandments, shows empathy or love, and helps their fellow human beings—and probably other living things, and the world.

If we believe that the real servants of GOD are only those who “accept or believe in any messenger of GOD”, abide by GOD’s commandments, and love or and help their fellow human beings, then is it right to disregard those who abide by GOD’s commandments, and love or and help their fellow human beings, even though they’ve never had any opportunity to hear about, accept or believe in any of the messengers of GOD?

I don’t think it’s right to disregard those who tick all the boxes, but don’t have the chance or opportunity—or whatever you may call it—to believe in any of the messengers of GOD.

The act of obeying GOD’s commandments, and giving, loving and helping, certainly qualifies one to be a servant of GOD

In my opinion, a real servant of GOD is anybody who abides by GOD’s commandments, shows empathy or love, and helps their fellow human beings (and probably other living things, and the world.

It is not enough to attend services practiced in temples, mosques and churches in order to be regarded as a genuine servant of GOD.

Most likely, the great living GOD won’t accept (as servants) any religious person who doesn’t have love, empathy and concern for the welfare of their fellow human beings.

A real servant of GOD lives according to the basic tenets of GOD, irrespective of their place of birth, the religion they followed as per their parents, or the religion they were chanced or fortunate to join after becoming physical mature; also, irrespective of their status in life—rich or poor—or how they rightfully earn their living on Earth, they are servants of GOD.

Real servants of GOD always do everything within their means to obey the commandments of GOD, and love or help their fellow human beings.

Do you think that being a servant of GOD goes way beyond obeying GOD’s commandments, and loving or helping fellow human beings? What do you think qualifies someone to be a real servant of GOD? Comments about your opinion will be appreciated in the comment section.

  • Yes I believe that Love is the way.
    Let us remember that Jesus is the only person in written or oral history to proclaim “I am the Way, I am the Truth and I am the Life and no man comes to the Father but through me.” This ends all argument for me on the issue of any other master or Savior
    Not Buddha, Not Mohammed, Not Gary, but only through Jesus do we have life and Life more abundant in the Kingdom of the beloved Son. Amen

    • Thank you for your comments, but even if Jesus said that he is the way, argument doesn’t end, never, especially on judgment day it won’t end because Jesus also knows that not everyone in the world would ever have the opportunity to hear about him…before the knowledge of Jesus spread to many parts of the world (until today it hasn’t touched quite a number of places), there have been very good people, believers of GOD, who are far better off in terms of love and character than many who profess Jesus…in Africa where I live there are many people who haven’t heard about Jesus, and probably never will…so professing that Jesus is the only way, leaves much questions related to whether there is any justice in people being fortunate about knowing or hearing about Jesus… it is unfortunate and very unfair to generalize such comments (that Jesus is the way and no one cometh to GOD) on the whole world that consists of multitudes of people from diverse backgrounds, with fortunate or unfortunate conditions of birth and life.

      • The scripture is straight forward in dealing with this issue.
        Please remember that only scripture can interpret scripture. And only scripture (The Word) has all Authority . Any other way of portraying our beliefs of a certain scripture is heresy according to scripture itself in Paul’s epistles.
        He says that the Word of God is not open for discussion in our private interpretations.
        This being said we know by scripture that those who have not heard the Gospel will be saved through the weighing of their heart.
        Amen

        • your accepted scripture is straight forward, but there is no need to think only about yourself; for thousands of years, many good people have been unfortunate not to have heard about Jesus or the scripture you were fortunate to have been exposed to—either due to the fact that you were born in a Christian family, or that you lived within or around a Christian community that preached to you in a way that made it easy for you to accept Jesus…

          what do you have to say about the very good souls that died in the past (like in many villages in my country and other African countries) but never heard about your Jesus, or your scripture? till date many are dying without ever having heard about him.

          the point is that some very good people die or died, but never had the chance to hear about or believe in GOD, and Jesus….

          a better explanation would be more adequate than just expecting everyone to come across the Bible or Jesus; as if the two are as so easy to come across, like air or water…

I am new to the Christian faith and The Roman Catholic religion is filled with non biblical traditions and beliefs. People who aren’t familiar with Christianity often confuse the two because Catholics do believe in Jesus however Catholics have different traditions they practice outside of Jesus. Again please get informed and read the Bible. You will be amazed what you can discover outside of other people’s point of view. To get to know Jesus you need to take the time and listen. Forget what you have been taught by other people and learn they way a child learns for the first time ever! “I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I that live, but Christ liveth in me: and that life which I now live in the flesh I live in faith, the faith which is in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.”

              “Christianity is the largest religion in the world, with 2.3 billion adherents, or 31.4% of the global population. Today, the four largest branches of Christianity are the Catholic Church (1.3 billion), Protestantism (920 million), the Eastern Orthodox Church (260 million) and Oriental Orthodoxy (86 million)”.

That is a child like answer you kicked sand in my eyes I am going home. Then they tell you God bless you and I will say prayer for you. I don’t worship your god or Jesus when you tell me they have a future tense. Intelligent design of creation has no past tense or future tense. It has existed for before your eyes opened to the world and will exist long after your eyes close for the last time. Man created gods and religions for governance and control for political and theological reasons. The First witness of Creation you see walking next to you and around you. A woman is the first one to know if she is pregnant. She does not need a Dr. to tell her that. “Kingdom of GOD”, when Moses went to the mountain asked his name,. How did Creator answer? He never told Moses he was GOD. Only King James tells you that. You watch Nature to figure out Intelligent design then it will come to you what eternity is. Creation always requires a second witness to intelligent design by the Hands of ONE. Mans gods never have power over Creation. They just make you feel good like the pools of Bethesda. Man was placed east of Eden after the Sabbath and he created the gods that control your life. It is the same in all the major religions of the world. They all have gods and none of them of power.

  • All life is sourced from from whatever we call God. For me, all of us and all of life, serve Source whether we acknowledge that or not. Adherence to any religion or way of life can serve to support waking up or hinder waking up to knowing reality. Life serves Consciousness, and Consciousness becomes aware of itself in 17 billion different ways. I am so limited by my supposed separation from Love, how can I judge another for not serving God in the way I think that should look? How can I know what serves another person’s path to awakening?

This applies to all, not just the servants who work in houses of worship. If you one says he/she is a servant of God, but has no love in them, no grace, no compassion for the world around them, as you say here, then I would have a hard time believing they are servants of God. Our lives should reflect our beliefs. We are known by what we do more than what we say.

I suspect humans are never permanently doing the right thing, or following whatever code of moral conduct, or rules on a full time basis. I think we can spend the day seeking the opportunity to be compassionate, kind, understanding, and loving. And, I think that is where it starts. Are we open to the opportunity to be what we know in our hearts we are aspiring too? I can’t imagine thinking I know anything about what someone’s God wants or doesn’t want. Lots of humans seem to have the answers to that but conditioned personality thinks it knows a lot of stuff.

According to the bible everyone MUST pass through Jesus (Son of God) before getting to the Father. ‘and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ‘
    (Philippians 2:11). Also it doesn’t matter what works we do on this earth because works ALONE will not get us into the Kingdom of God. We must repent and be born again within the spirit and give up the desires of the flesh. ‘For if, by the trespass of the one, death reigned through the one; much more shall they that receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one, even Jesus Christ. ‘ (Romans 5:17) Thank you for sharing and may God bless you.

      also, you were wrong in using part of the information I might have mistakenly presented when I stated that I am a Christian…

      I’m sure if it was a Buddhist who posted this same article, most likely you wouldn’t have commented on it, even if he didn’t side anyone, like the way I didn’t;

      or even if you commented, probably you wouldn’t have commented in this manner: asking me why I put Jesus in the same category as Mohamed and Buddha…I don’t think you would make such comments on a Muslim or Buddhist’s post..

      and as per preaching about Jesus, please read the replies I gave to other people who were preaching about him too… I’m not against Jesus, but I think I have a bit of issues against attendants of religions who believe in a messenger, but don’t have empathy for their fellow man… in case you don’t have time to read the replies I gave others, then you may read this brief, which is in response to your comments about Jesus being the only way:

      —for over 2000 years, many people (especially in remote parts of the world, just like where I live) lived their whole lives without an opportunity to hear about Jesus. some people died not even knowing about GOD… so the issue of generalizing Jesus on people who never heard about him, lacks a lot of justice and merit.

      Christianity came to my country about 50 or so years ago…it is wrong to apply such scriptures to people who died between the time (as long as 1950 years) Jesus left this world, and the time his name was mentioned or preached to other living people around 1950 AD, in many remote areas and villages, and many other inaccessible parts of the world…so its definitely wrong to assume they everyone will hear about Jesus; it’s wrong to say they MUST pass through him, just because you read it in a powerful scripture. ..thank you…

      I really appreciate your visit, and participation in the discussion…

It is difficult to explain please take the time and read the four gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. All you have to do is have an open mind and heart plus have faith. In time Jesus will show you the true way. Also if you don’t understand you can pray to God for understanding and if you are sincere and patience He will give this to you. I will also pray for you. Also if you were talking about Mohammad and Buddha I wold ask you way you follow this? Jesus is the only one is history that lived a sinless life, died for our sins, then rose from the die. So this is way we see Jesus as a living God who conquered death. Also he is the only one who performed such miracles through the power of his Father and our Father. Thank you for taking the time to respond and I’m sorry I didn’t have the time to read all the comments it was a lot. Have a blessed day and weekend.

        • thank you for your comment which has some points that I wouldn’t want to bother responding to because our reasoning, experiences and understanding about life is thousands of miles apart and would never probably be the same for the foreseeable future…but one thing I will like to assure you (and I know you will remember, either in this lifetime or after this lifetime) is that for the fact that you believe in GOD, everything about life will become clearer to you—everything, sooner or later… if you were unfortunate (if you would like to call it unfortunate) to be a Muslim or Buddhist or other religion, and stick there for whatever reason without leaving, Jesus will laugh at people who think in the way you have been expressing some of his words and applying it to the whole humanity…why? because its not applicable to everyone;. it cam never; its obvious… and GOD o not partial… the most important things are obedience to GOD and his commandments… thank you for your time, but it is unfortunate to entertain these types of comments that convey a deep sense of partiality… however, you probably need to be told what you haven’t been told before; that’s why I went this far with you; I normally don’t, especially when it has no relationship with the post…

          I don’t even know how you feel coming to waste people’s time on a post that has no relationship with your comment… is that what your Christianity is about …

          the world and GOD’s creation as a whole are far greater than any religion…

          You see, I was at the level where you are, before, but either in this life, or the hereafter, you will be shocked at the truth that will stare at the eyes of your soul… thank you… I wont respond again because your comments don’t rhyme with the post at all…they are just a waste of time I should have used for something else… do remember that this post is about religions, not about preaching of Jesus…

  • Being a human is a given. However keeping our humanity is a choice. I’ve seen people go to church, being pious. After church I see them talking about this person or that person with criticism. I believe in a higher power, I have faith, I just don’t feel I need to go to church to be as good a person as I can be.

    • Thanks for visiting, reading and contributing… I really appreciate your opinion… honestly, it’s not even compulsory or necessary to help people; one can actually keep to themselves so far they don’t harm other people…once people can obey (or possibly disobey) GOD’s commandments and don’t harm anybody, I feel that they are still in line…

      on the other hand, note that this post concentrates on the religious attendees…one general thing that cuts across every, or most religions, is the teachings/standard regarding the welfare of fellow human beings…why this post centers on that is because, in the absence of belief in a messenger (Jesus, Mohammed, etc.), the next thing people would likely consider as standard for being a servant of GOD is the level of love and concern for fellow people… but its not wrong not to express empathy for others… that’s a personal choice that everyone is entitled to… but the messengers of GOD (who religious followers follow) had/have the welfare of their fellow human beings at heart…

  • Interesting blog! Covers wide and diverse topics. I am especially interested in science and spirituality. Where ‘conventional’ science ends, spirituality starts.

  • I enjoyed reading your post. Great inspiration. I used to be a Christian but I follow God/Divine on my terms or rather God’s Terms. A person just has to walk the path of the Divine or God to be accepted by God, religion is not needed nor are any scriptures to follow. As the soul links with the Divine or God so communication is direct and NOW. The communication is relevant to now today’s issues. Advice is give on how to work through life of today’s reality.

    • Yours is one of the 3 best comments (if not the best) that I have ever heard in my life…In fact, I wish I had people like you around me when I was growing up, searching the path… I grew up from a Christian background and, although I gained a lot from Christianity, information and experiences about life have made me modify some of my beliefs…I still believe in Jesus so much, but I feel some of his messages were greatly misinterpreted…I honestly feel that some lack of a certain level of spiritual understanding dragged some (or most) of Jesus’ real messages away from the truth… thank you for visiting, reading and making very meaningful and insightful comments…all the guidance we need in life is within our spirits…

  • Religion in every human beings life is by chance not by choice. So, to be a good person doesn’t depend on religion. If we start searching god in ourself we don’t need to go to these religious places and no body can take the benefit out of it.

    • 👏👏👏… I can only clap and appreciate such a brilliant comment: if we start searching for GOD in ourselves, we wouldn’t have to look for him outside… this comment rhymes with 2 of Jesus’ sayings which I can recall: the kingdom of GOD does not come by physical observation; and the kingdom of GOD is within you…I agree that religion has more to do with where life puts somebody, especially at birth…

      Thank you for taking time to visit, read and make such an enlightening comment.
