(Luk. 12:35) “Let … be … your lamps burning”
Possibly, the main meaning of Bible is literal (not spiritual).
Didn’t Christ want us to keep our lamps burning in literal sense?
If yes, he wants us to contribute to global warming (possibly because such climate may be more comfortable for spirits) by burning our electric lamps.
However, this was in the age of Gospel when we were slaves of Christ, and you become free by knowing the truth from my book. The new age starts when we are no more slaves. As we are not slaves anymore, it possibly is our individual decision whether to contribute for or against global warming.
Also read in my book how Apocalypse (including 8th chapter, falling comet described in my book) about whether Apocalypse may be canceled. Likewise if we become friends of Christ not just slaves, he may cancel global warming.
Bible teaches that Christ is king.
But why a king? Why not some other job?
He would be a very good scientist, just because he already knows everything. He would head such projects as building thermonuclear reactors or designing fast microprocessors. But instead he has set to become a king over the Earth.
Be assured that he chooses for himself the most efficient occupation. In Bible a king not only gives decrees but also judges. The function of a biblical king is to control the society to live in peace.
Without peace microprocessors and nuclear fusion reactors are useless. A war could destroy them anyway. The task of Christ as he rules over the Earth is to keep peace. And this task keeps him busy fulltime.
This is the reason why he is a king, not a microprocessor designer. If the peace is kept people could gradually build better microprocessors and fusion engines. If progress faced too quickly, it could lead to discrepancy between the technology and morality. Christ does not want such a discrepancy, but namely this would happen, if he would design or technology by himself thus advancing it too quickly.
Thus he has chosen the (humbly) task to be a king.
What is the main function of a shepherd? It is to feed the sheep.
Then what is the main function of a pastor? It is to ensure that all of the crowd he manages has food, shelter, some rest, etc.
This was neglected because it was taught that the service of the pastor is “spiritual” and thus does not concern bodily matters.
My theory of human soul is that “soul” is a backup of the brain. Science has indeed proved that people think by and are controlled by the brain. If the human body is put into a too difficult condition, this may (sometimes quite badly) influence human mind and emotions.

Sin as a DoS attack for our brains designed by the devil.
This means that devil designed some “program” in our mind which disturbs other programs to work well. It is the reason why we cannot calculate like a computer.
Sin is not just a DoS attack but a DDoS attack that is the main problem lies not in our brains but in the attacker: (Eph. 6:12) “For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” This means that when the source of the attack is overcome, the problem with our brains remain minor and can be relatively easily solved.
(Heb. 2:5-8) “5 For he didn’t subject the world to come, of which we speak, to angels. 6 But one has somewhere testified, saying,
“What is man, that you think of him?
Or the son of man, that you care for him?
7 You made him a little lower than the angels.
You crowned him with glory and honor.
8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet.””
This mean that people who passed through sin and overcome (with God’s help) will be above angels. Why? I think the reason for this is the following: DoS attacks are nothing other than hard problems (for the brain). That is ability to stand against sin is a kind of problem which one should be able to solve. Probably some hard problems are similar to DoS attacks for the mind of one who tries to solve. Thus these who passed through sin and overcame are more clever than these who never passed through sin.
“For he who has died has been freed from sin.” (Rom. 6:7)
Our brain does not have enough computing power to overcome sin (which is a denial of service attack as a computer hacker would say). But when we die, our personality is transferred to a much more powerful computer run by God, so that the sin in us is overcome.

I’ve made an observation: Jesus didn’t kill anyone (using spiritual power).
Well, we know, that when he returns his garments will be stained by blood (Isaiah 63).
Further thinking on the purpose of Jesus’ death, being inspired by this article while reading it right now, I propose this theory:
Christ’s death was to demonstrate that an altruistic person will be rewarded (as in Christ’s resurrection and power over the entire heavens given) justly, even when at first it seems that this way leads to death.
This has shown to the heavenly powers that altruism works and leads to life rather than to death as someone may expect.
And this needs a sacrifice of God himself, because it is necessary to show that even the highest level of altruism is rewarded.
Here I present my theory of prayer to God. I don’t know if this theory is true or just my imagination. Neither I can provide any Bible verses supporting my theory. Nevertheless here is my idea:
It is often asked: If God already knows everything, then why we need to pray? Here is my possible answer:
Einstein discovered that some things (distance, time, electric fields, masses, etc.) are relative. In other words, they don’t really exist, instead there exist only their so called “invariants” (like some kind of absolute distance in 4-d space). I have proposed a theory that in physics not “some” but all things are relative. This my theory is much less specific than Einstein’s one and thus is very hard to check by experiment. Nevertheless this my tiny theory is a valid physical idea (however needs to be made much more specific than my rough idea) and nothing in our current scientific knowledge disproves it.
The overall idea of my theory is that the physical reality as we measure it does not exists, because it is completely relative.
But then houses, cars, electrons, protons, our bodies do not really exist! They are just relative projections of deeper reality.
This is how “physical reality” looks like for God: it does not exist. The only what exists, is its relation to God.
The only thing existing for God is our particular prayers. Only these things exists which we pray about. Prayer defines reality. God knows all, but he does not know “reality” which is not defined (not exists), so here our prayers are needed.
