In many aspects if evolution exists it exists only in the presence of God. The purpose that God has isto move humanity from a temporal being into a form that is in God’s likeness. I have always thought this is because God is lonely, but robots cannot satisfy an all knowing being. The only thing that could satisfy are equals. So eventually God will ‘evolve’ us from frail earth and mud, into beings like God. Mortal into immortality. This is the purpose in everything.
The goal of free-will then, is to allow us to understand the villainy in horrible behaviors before we are given immortal power. Free-will can never cease or else we are nothing more than puppets to God.So, I believe I understand the rebuke against religion. However, I do like the benefit of singing in a choir and the social benefits of a good church. I find that my personal behaviors prevent my permanent affiliation with any church or religion. I am without a church or choir at the moment.
However, I hope my behaviors don’t prevent a permanent affiliation with God.
I am tired of every new Holiday bringing out the same stupid eCards that say, “God is an imaginary Santa in the sky.” Or “God is an imaginary Easter Bunny in the sky.” Or, “God is an imaginary tooth fairy…”
blah…blah…blah. I saw about 3 of these in my news feed today I had enough.Nobody can define if God. Certainly, it is boring and unclever to constantly post the same tired diatribe about God being a fairy tale friend of grown-ups. Nobody can make that statement would having Godlike powers.
So, to all the tired hacks posting the same tired LOL. Knock it off. Grow up.
Sincerely – All the Rest of Us.
