Today there are several religions, and most of them completely escape rational logic. Being God the Being who created the universe, we see that the universe is of great perfection and mathematical organization. Extremely complex laws. Thus, this Creator God has to be extremely rational and logical.
Thus, salvation must also be logical. For this we must understand that what man desires will be analyzed, whether for salvation or not. For example, the man who wants to destroy himself cannot have salvation 1 . And this is logical, why save someone who seeks to destroy themselves? But to destroy is not just commit suicide, all kinds of error is headed for destruction 2. Now, doing good is broad, as destroying nature cannot be good. So if a man's action is to use his pleasures for the destruction of nature he is doing harm. But all collaboration for those who destroy nature is also bad. Thus, like the destruction of nature, it generates problems on the planet which, therefore, causes destruction to man. Eating meat is a factor in deforestation, as meat needs many nature reserves.
Thus, meat consumption favors deforestation, which favors the destruction of the terrestrial ecosystem, which favors the death of people, which destroys people, and God will destroy those who destroy people, for those who do not do good commit sin.
And so who will be saved? Everyone who wants to live. And who wants to live, wants to take care of their health, wants to make other people go the right way, wants to take care of nature, and wants to love and be loved. See, it all comes down to everyone who wants to live will be saved. But an individual who smokes, drinks alcohol, eats fatty foods, and has a sedentary lifestyle. He may say that he wants to be saved, but in fact he seeks his destruction. For with his mouth he speaks one thing, but with his actions he shows something else.
Thus, we see that the person seeking life is important, and this involves health 3 . Why is it no use calling God, or asking Jesus to help, if you do not do God's will 4 . It would be like going to the doctor for a cure, and not following anything the doctor said, and the sicker the more you ask the doctor for help, and the less you follow the doctor's recommendations.
A basic norm to be saved is to obey. And obeying and loving are in close connection. He who loves obeys 5 . But not everyone who obeys loves. God has given our lives, and we should take care of Him as best we can, as long-lasting as possible. But this must be viewed broadly.
Life is not an end in itself, for life is about wanting life for everyone. If a person does evil, that evil becomes an example for others to do evil. But to do good is a teaching to others, so that they also see that it is necessary to do good. So if you need to lose your life for others to seek your life, then that is also wanting to live 6 .
It may seem strange, but Jesus determines that there are times when death is life, and He says He came to bring life 7 , and how is it? Good examples bring life, so each individual cannot be conniving or afraid to present what is right. But the right comes not from anger, but from the actions of the good.
Many men and women of value have changed many people for good, because they saw their mother and father starving so that food could support them when they were children. Seeking life is much greater than looking at one's own needs. But that does not justify because of pleasures destroying oneself.
For it is not the act of appear as a Christian that the person will be saved 4 . This is not to say that we should be related to people who take pleasure in error 8 . Thus, we should present ourselves as best we can, but not just on the outside 9 .
So who will be saved? One who loves life and wants everyone to have a true life. And never think that to destroy oneself for pleasure is to live 10 .
