Then you have a choice: you believe Him, or you don't. And on that choice, all else depends.
That's the sum of it.
Humans preaching to other humans their made up religious BS stories...
That has, no doubt, been sometimes true. The important question is whether or not it's true in this case. And your decision about that determines your destiny.
Once you have decided, I have no more to say.
I very much doubt that is your call to make. And I very much doubt you have no more to say. If you believe you are the fictional character within the dream then you will always have something to say as you battle to defend your illusory shadow in vain.
You really need to get yourself properly educated about the nature of reality.
You do not have a destiny. You have never been born, and cannot die. You do not move or go anywhere. You does not happen.
Happenings are what you observe. Similar to watching a movie. The movie seems real, invoking all kinds of sensations, emotions and feelings, but these are simulations of the brain. The brain is another part of the movie playing many fictional illusory simulated character roles. But who you are is the empty observer of all this activity. In the dream / movie...characters do bad deeds and pay the consequences, some bad deed doers are totally reformed characters for having seen the errors of their ways. However, it's all but a simulated illusory movie created by the brain upon awareness.
Free will does not exist, but it is believed as being actual by your brain. Scientists have proved this. Humans are convinced that their brain makes conscious choice as they live their lives.
But instead, the brain just convinces itself that it makes a free choice from the available options only after the decision is made by the intelligence in life and not by the brain.
Why on earth would the real need an experience? The real has no needs. It is the illusory which needs an experience so that it can blow its trumpet. You are as you are. Observe life, listen to life. Watch the mind interpret life and manifest a drama of free will.
I have undergone anesthesia, the clue to your being is found during this process. During which I would have assumed the I am awareness would have gone on while the body was unconscious. But no. Nothing.
Switching from being to not being is interesting.What if the perceived gap in time is not a loss of awareness but part of it?
For illustration purposes, let's say reading a book were a continued awareness from cover-to-cover and a bunch of pages were left blank to symbolize a loss of awareness, would that also be a loss of awareness for the reader of the book?
1,0,1,0,1,0,1,0,1.......... Sleep, wake, sleep, wake.... gives the illusion of a change in perception and yet there is a strange continuity.
Truth is, you have never been born, nor have you died. I believe this to be God's mental realm of experience. There is only God turning the light off and on. If the light can be turned on, it can be turned off too.
Switching from being to not being is interesting. I have come to realise I do this "all the time''.
To be always and have a universe land on the shore of awareness on and on and on eternally what a nightmare that would actually be. Like never being able to switch the light off.
When we say we are light beings that is only partially true. Light because that is the state where we perceive things. And then there is also the state of Not being different in potential.
Mysteriously I am all that.
