My views, please I plead that know one take offense to what I say these are my personal views and as with everything I say I never take what I say as truth. There are 3 levels of how close a human can get to God. Messiah is literally a manifestation of God on earth, where they live selfishless and pure lives and the miracles performed can range from controlling the weather to feed thousands of people with one basket of fish and bread and bringing people back from the dead. I view Jesus Christ and Zoroaster as Messiahs. Saints go about doing gods work discreetly and can perform miracles, heal and view the future, they Acknowledge something greater then them and they usually would give there lives as martyrs and are known to have had military and political positions. One religion I view as being created by saints would be Baha'i, Greek Gods and Hinduism to be based on this level to God! Prophets have great characters they can charm and they can view the future, they have the ability to spread the word of God and in some circumstances end up in military positions and political positions. They can also do dark and false work in there favour however when you really think about it, it's a paradox they appear to have done more good then harm. In some cultures they might also be known as Guru's. I view Alexander the great, Muhammad and in this category. We are all moving towards the kingdom of God On earth, noted in religious teaching and my personal belief. However there is no set level it is nothing that can be measured these are my guidelines I a sure you this is all unique from me Any religion I have missed out, you can put it where you think it applies. Or you can totally rearrange it. My wish is for all religions to unify in the world in so that they can stop the wars they fuel.
