God said this, God said that – NO – you said this, you said that. When I use the term God I do not mean a Christian God I mean any God regardless of what you call him in your own faith based religion. So that being the case every time I use the term God I mean the God that you follow regardless of your chosen God’s name.
Chosen – now that is a very good word to describe how people select who to follow is it not?
Forget about which God is the best, or who you regard as the only true God, because in the end it is not which God is the best but how people follow their God and conduct themselves as a result. Sadly however all of these various Gods out there in the world are all getting a bad name by those who follow such things and lay their actions and hatreds on their Gods saying it is their God who instructs them in their actions rather than saying it is their own doing.
Your God says he hates Gay people, your God says he hates all types of things and those who do not follow him are sinners and must be punished – but in fact – it is you who hates many different things and it is you who tries to validate your hatred of others by saying it is what God says.
Why not just be open and honest and come right out with it and say that it is you – yes you – who hates the ways of other people?
In addition if you think that quoting passages from any religious book that tells you what to do, or think, will validate your actions then think again. If you cannot think for yourself and can only quote from a book then maybe you should not read such things in the first place?
Do you, as a religious person, also hate people who do not follow such things? If not then why do you tell such people they are sinners? Why do you tell such people they will burn in the fires of hell? Is your God an evil God or is it you saying such things?
Religious people have a bad habit of thinking they are the chosen ones and have the right to tell others how they should live their lives. Religious people are also judgemental of others who do not uphold their values, and yet, they think nothing of beating someone to death in the name of their God. Is it any wonder therefore that religion often gets ridiculed for saying one thing but doing the total opposite?
The biggest giveaway of all that shows religious people to be just as evil minded as anyone else is when two rival religions spit poisonous venom at each other that is often far worse than two thugs fighting in the street. You may think of yourself as a nice person and not an extremist but no one comes out of this situation without blood on their hands if you are part of any religion that allows its members to do such things.
When it comes to any biblical faith based group – if you believe in a God then of course you must also believe there is a Devil. That being the case how sure are you that who you are listening to is God? – or are you being guided by the Devil? Are your actions, and all the religious hatred in the world, the teachings of a good God or are you being mislead by negative forces that some would call the Devil?
This of course is a very big subject so on a final note – How many more people must die around the world in the name of religion?
My name is Dave J. Lomas. I do not follow any religion nor am I an atheist. I am just a simple member of the human race who can think and take responsibility for my own actions for myself at all times.
You are also a member of the human race therefore you also must take responsibility for your own actions and not ask your God to validate the negative things that you do.
