What is it with all these ‘dialed back’ individuals in the news who think that God has something to do with who survives horrible disasters? To believe that, you’d have no choice but to then admit that “The Lord” didn’t give a damn to save all those other innocent children…If “The Lord” saved some and not the others, he’d have to have intended for those others to die in such a horrible nightmarish fashion.
WHAT? You don’t believe God has something to do with who lived? Well you must be an athiest!…Wrong again…Wrong on both counts.
What many have yet to understand after the horrible EF-5 super tornado in Oklahoma that killed so many, including many children, is that if you think that survivors of that tornado need to “Thank the Lord”, then you believe in a very sick and twisted “Lord”(what a silly word too, I’ve never gotten used to referring to God as a British ruler…does the Lord wear a powdered wig…I assume that would be the case).
But to believe this way, you believe in a “Lord” who used really grotesque favoritism in deciding who “He” (of course they think the Lord has to be a male) would save from the tornado, and consequently who “He” would NOT save. What makes one innocent child protected by “The Lord”, and the others NOT protected by “The Lord”? Answer that please. Don’t say it is God’s will, because silly, if you say that, you just MADE MY POINT for me. The Lord wouldn’t save one, and ‘will’ not to save the others, because being omnipotent, that would make him a sick piece of you know what to say the least.
So, to show you how sick it is to think “Oh, THANK THE LORD” when someone’s child was found alive – what that absolutely means is that this wonderful, miraculous, loving Lord DID NOT want to save all the other innocent children who died horribly in fear and pain I can’t even imagine…Your wonderful “Lord” that came to the rescue of some, chose NOT to come to the rescue of others…”The Lord” INTENDED for them to suffer that fate. We’re talking innocent children here, sorry there were no gay people or Muslims of a different faith for you to say “Well, they were condemned in God’s eyes, so that’s why”, or some other retarded and bigoted excuse.
This is why I talk a lot about the importance of our society finally growing out of such debilitating, false religious ignorance into a real understanding of true spirituality.
True spirituality isn’t “The Lord”…the Divine is not an omnipotent being that is “exterior” to you…looking down on you, that would allow such a fearful event to descend upon your community, arbitrarily saving some and leaving others outside “His” omnipotent protection. That is just way beyond sick to think of the Divine in that fashion.
But the man-made Bible is full of such sick false teachings of just such a hypocritical God. Many passages in the Bible even describe God as ordering acts of genocide over and over again against nations the Jews conquered…ordaining slavery of humans because they were of different race or belief. There are countless passages of a non-loving vengeful, warmongering, unforgiving God… displaying anger and violent temper beyond belief. But God is supposed to be Love? PLEASE! You can’t have it both ways.
This is sick that such false teaching is still believed so widely today, and has caused more wars in mankind’s history than any other reason. We have to start speaking up about this and exposing this mental illness in every way it rears its head, so that we can begin making real spiritual progress toward lasting real peace for mankind.
