This is the second time I am writing this post, because the database or my host is having issues. I am aware the site has gotten very slow and pokey. I use ipower hosting who for many years, were great. They have really gone down hill and their once patient and helpful tech support folks have become arrogant and unhelpful.
I am currently looking to move the blog away from ipower but that doesn’t sounds easy. I will keep you updated.
Please let me know if it has been slow for you to look at this site.
I happen to be reading through the morning blogs I tend to read and I saw a comment on GCMW where they are of course chatting about the meanings of the bible. The commenter says, “verse 43 if you are a child of the devil, you better listen! Judgement is inevitable!”
I thought to myself, “judgment?” What a concept this is. Let me get this clear for myself. An all knowing god is going to judge me at the end of my time here on earth? What is this all knowing being going to say to me, “You did everything I knew you would do before I even created you, now go to hell, you didn’t do what I wanted you to do”
Why again do people believe in the judgment of god? If he created you, fully knowing in the end you would be sent to hell, why then did he create you? Was he trying to be nice or be a jerk? Why would he create you, knowing you are bound for hell?
There are many reasons I lost my belief in god, but this was up there on the list. It seems like one of those across the board beliefs shared by many religions, that god will judge us on judgment day. The idea of it never made any sense to me and while my priest as a child tried his best to have it makes sense, I think he made it more clear for me, it would never make sense.
The paradox of it is pretty clear. God cannot know everything about you, know you are destined for hell (which he must have created if he created everything or satan would have the same creational power as god making him too, a god) and still claim to love you when he creates you. It would be about the same as creating a beautiful painting fully knowing you were going to set it on fire and destroy it. How cruel is that.
There is no way of avoiding the idea that hell was created by god or that satan has the same power to create as god. The proof of this would be hell. How did this place called hell come to be? Does Satan have the same powers as god? I could go on in my mind with this for days, but I will stop allowing that because it is silly. The answer that best fits the problem for me at least, there is no god.
