Talking Taboo!

I see it so much where people blame God, for the problems of the world! I am not a very religious person, but I am very spiritual! I believe there is something there, and it is greater than me! That's about all I will say about that! Anyway, God does not stand in and stop disasters every day, but that does not mean that he creates these maladies either. We are to use this entity(As you understand it), for comfort in the face of tragedy. Not the other way around! Just one persons personal view, does not reflect any group's opinion as a whole!

People blame God often when they can't find anyone else to blame. I agree God is not up in heaven looking down and punishing us. Shit happens. I wish it all had an explanation and a purpose... or maybe I really don't. To think there is a purpose to some of the tragidies that happen is more than I want to think about or accept. Shit just happens. Bad stuff at our fragile human level... but so insignificant in the scheme of the universe.

Nice post...

God, gave us this world to live in. The universe to explore. Wonders to look upon in amazement.
He watches, as we move through our lives. Cries in sorrow at our wars. The pain we cause others with cruel words. The moments of grief and sadness. He feels them all.
Then he watches, As we rush to help people we don't know. In their time of need. Kind acts great and small. The door you held open, The hand you held out to another. The dog or cat you fed or gave a home. And He smiles.
I don't believe in religion. They've been twisted and used to justify men's ego and thirst for power. But I do believe in God.
Watch the movie "Oh'God" with George Burns. The first one, not the sequels. That's how I think God views us.
O'K the rantings over. Back to my corner.
I like reading your thoughts. Keep writing them.

I agree, Shit Happens! They wrote books about it! Bad things happen to good people! I did see Oh God I, it was the best! I felt that way too, when I watched it. I would hope it is comforting and merciful! I was raised Roman Catholic, so that God was all but! Yikes, glad I knew better than that!

People tend to blame God too often for every day events and happenings. Like you, I'm not an overly religious individual but I do believe. God only gave us the wisdom and ability to do the things we do. He also gave us "free will." Nothing we do is against our beliefs of the moment. The sad part is many of us make bad decisions and when we do, we feel the need to blame someone other than ourselves. The truth is we have no one to blame but ourselves and we need to accept that responsibility and accept the effects of our actions. Anyway, enough about that as we can go on for hours. Some day you feel you just wanna chat and talk about things, get in touch with me and we'll do that over a couple cocktails and/or munchies. Make the best of todat, tomorrow and forever....the only way to inner peace and harmony.
