If this planet is the greatest that God could do, than I feel justified in saying that God is an idiot…?

January 31st, 2014

Query by The Canine Abides: If this planet is the very best that God could do, than I truly feel justified in saying that God is an idiot…?

Anyone who says otherwise has no compassion for the struggling masses.

…nuff said.

What does that make you believe about me?

“And do not tell me God works in mysterious approaches,” Yossarian continued, hurtling on more than her objection. “There’s absolutely nothing so mysterious about it. He is not doing work at all. He’s taking part in. Or else, He’s forgotten all about us. Which is the type of God you individuals talk about – a nation bumpkin, a clumsy, bungling, brainless, conceited, uncouth hayseed. Excellent God, how significantly reverence can you have for a supreme getting who finds it essential to contain this kind of phenomena as phlegm and tooth decay in His divine technique of creation? What in the globe was working by means of that warped, evil, scatological mind of His when he robbed previous folks of their energy to control their bowel movements? Why in the world did He ever develop soreness?”

“Discomfort?” Lieutenant Schiesskopf’s wife pounced upon the word victoriously. “Pain is a useful symptom. Pain is a warning to us about bodily dangers.”

“And who developed the dangers?” Yossarian demanded, He laughed caustically. “Oh, He was really becoming charitable to us when He gave us soreness! Why could not He have utilized a doorbell as an alternative to notify us, or a single of His celestial choirs? Or a technique of blue-and-red neon tubes correct in the middle of each and every person’s forehead? Any jukebox producer really worth his salt could have done that. Why could not He?”

“Folks would certainly look silly walking all around with red neon tubes in the middle of their foreheads.”

“They undoubtedly look beautiful now writhing in agony or stupefied with morphine, do not they? What a colossal, immortal blunderer! When you contemplate the opportunity and power he had to actually do a work, and then look at the stupid ugly little mess He manufactured of it rather, His sheer incompetence is practically staggering. It is evident. He never met a payroll. Why, no self-respecting businessman would retain the services of a bungler like Him as even a shipping clerk!”

    This world is the proving ground for “the best that G-d could do.” To prove one’s worth, one must have free choice. A world in which G-d’s presence is obvious lacks free choice. Thus, man is allowed free choice. And sadly, many such people act grotesquely, murdering others.

    Well, for a start as a Christian I believe the bible. God did create this world and when He was finished it was paradise. However when satan decieved Adam and Eve into rebelling against God at that point in time, sin and death came into the world. The relationship between God and man was broken and satan now stands in the way.
    Satan is now the “g”od of this world and we (mankind in general) are his subjects.
    When there was so much violence in the world that God, (notice the capitalization) had no choice but to send a flood that would cover the entire planet and all life not protected by the Ark.
    The waters receeded and we are now left with the broken, shattered pieces of that once perfect world originally created.
    Satan however still rules over this world and is only interested in destroying what God once held so dear. We (mankind) have the oppertunity to be forgiven by God, something satan can and never will experience. Satan loves to bring suffering to all mankind because he knows it causes God great pain.
    God can and often provides relief for the suffering, but He does so through people who are called by His name.
    As for what I think of you, I believe you must have been hurt very badly, and are looking for someone to blame for your pain. God only wishes god for you and if you humble yourself just enough to ask Him to meet you right where you are, (meaning in the midst of you pain) He will rescue you.
    Stop looking for excuses to run away from God and allow Him to heal you. God bless.

    Well, this world was ‘perfect’. It is us –Humans who have ruined this world for centuries. And don’t blame God for creating us so destructive-like… Remember… Free will.
