    By Gospel I simply mean "good news", I am not specifically referring to the gospels in the Bible.

    It seems to me that most people have some sort of spiritual gospel in some way. Yes, the Christians popularized it with the advent of Jesus, but every religion (and some irreligions) provoke some sort of good news to their adherents.

    My gospel, and probably the gospel of most syntheists, is that God is being created right now from our attempt to anthropomorphize nature. The future is vague but I do see one in which the best outcomes for the most amount of people, and after many years of oblivion there will be a resurrection of all 72 billion dead people that have existed. At first they will most likely exist as avatars of a digitized simulation of themselves, but nonetheless will come into a much greater form later. At the very end all ten dimensions will become a Synverse and we will become the masters of creation itself. Imagine being able to invent alternate universes just by thinking of it. There is magic involved within our technology that most people cannot begin to imagine yet. We are taking small but directed steps into creating the best this Universe (or others) has yet to offer.

    Share your gospel (good news) with us below.

    From all of Meher Baba's books and messages, this to me is the really good news given the state of the world today:

    Those who are spiritually awake have been aware for some time that the world is at present in the midst of a period such as always precedes Avataric manifestations. Even unawakened men and women are becoming aware of it now. From their darkness they are reaching out for light; in their sorrow they are longing for comfort; from the midst of the strife into which they have found themselves plunged, they are praying for peace and deliverance.

    For the moment they must be patient. The wave of destruction must rise still higher, must spread still further. But when, from the depths of his heart, man desires something more lasting than wealth and something more real than material power, the wave will recede. Then peace will come, joy will come, light will come.

    The breaking of my silence-the signal for my public manifestation is not far off. I bring the greatest treasure it is possible for man to receive, a treasure that includes all other treasures, that will endure forever, that increases when shared with others.

    Be ready to receive it.

    The good news would be that the Gods are all around us, supporting us, if one knows where to look.

    The good news I have to share is the coming of Baha'u'llah, who I believe is the Messenger of God for this age.

    I guess the good news is you have free will and can control your spiritual evolution, both here and beyond.

    I believe everyone has free will and can control their spiritual progress in this earthly life but I do not believe anyone will have free will in the next life, which is why it is so important to use our free will while we can.

    Not to argue (this is interfaith and not debates) but I believe that free will only exists because other free wills exist - free will is a collective rather than experienced by any one individual. That's my gripe about Satanists/Setianists that they see each individual as their own Godhood rather than a collective that is slowly becoming more free with each passing generation, achieving perfect freedom in this life and the next.

    Religion:
    Wicca, Polytheism, and Spiritualism.
    The good news for me is that I'm no longer ensnared in a religion that left me emotionally traumatized and severely depressed. The negativity and pain I felt as a Christian eventually led me to Wicca and, later, polytheism, both of which have been significantly positive experiences for me. Since renouncing my Christian faith and learning about Wicca, I have felt a sense of peace and comfort in my life that I never felt as a Christian. As I said before, I don't feel pressured to worship a specific god or goddess, nor do I feel pressured to uphold moral standards at all times in order to appease an extremely vindictive and jealous god who threatens to send me to hell if I don't play exactly by his rules. I don't fear the wrath of any gods or goddesses, nor do I feel in any way intimidated by them. There's no doubt in my mind that renouncing my former faith and following Wicca has changed my life for the better. That's my good news.

    This.

    To quote Emerson:

    "Standing on the bare ground – my head bathed by the blithe air and uplifted into infinite space – all mean egotism vanishes. I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all; the currents of the Universal Being circulate through me; I am part or particle of God.”

    To me that's because we are, in fact, individuals and not a collective.

    Life is suffering, but there is a path that leads to the ending of suffering.

    The good news for me is that the world will be united some day in my belief, that God loves all of us, that it is open to me to achieve what God wants for me, which is reuntion with Him, which is a very happy state to be in. I acheive reunion with Him by serving mankind without expecting reward from Him, though I will get that reward, which is reunion with God, by serving mankind. A tricky balance to acheive, to be sure.
