Why do we believe in the "Almighty"?
Every post I see has "May God...." - "May the good Lord..." - "May God protect..." Oh lets not forget all the "prayers"! I will first say "I am not a believer". If this "almighty" figure "sees and hears all";"can move mountains";and "make or stop things from happening" - then just where was he when this quake hit, as well as other terrible disasters????? Was he getting coffee? Did he blink, yawn or take a nap? Was there not a commercial break in his favorite show yet?
I constantly read "We are all God's children" - well I must say - "Now that is some parent!" A lot of his "children" are murdered, raped, set on fire, killed in quakes, killed in bombings, floods, and the list goes on and on and on. But then you hear - "Well - he called such and such home" WHAT!!!!!???? Let me tell you - if one of my parents wants to call me home - I would surely hope it is not by having me murdered or by some other terrible deed! I just don't get how people follow this "almighty" theory. I just don't get it!
The "bible" - how many times has it been re-written to read how those who "believe" want it to read? I must tell you - my family are believers - and I was brought up to believe until I was old enough to think and reason. Then when I started trying to put reason to this "Almighty" theory - it just did not add up.
I think people just have to believe in something and it is a majority that have been brainwashed to believe in this "almighty" theory - but if one would just sit down and think about it - not one bit of it makes any sense!
I challenge you to just use your simple reasoning skills and think this through. If then you can still tell yourself it is "real" - then that is what it is and have a Happy New Year, President Day and a wonderful Fourth of July! It is difficult to change the mind of a brainwashed person once they have been told something is real for their entire life - I do understand that right off. However, I don't see how any reasonable person could come to any other conclusion that the paint on that "almighty" picture is running.
