A thought for 9/11Posted on September 11th, 2011 1 comment
One of the Top… I mean Bottom Ten Worst Ideas mankind ever came up with:
GOD HAS FAVOURITES
That is, he likes certain individuals and countries more than others, and some he definitely dislikes.
In other words: God is a racist.
That idea was perhaps fine for Stone Age people, but less so for modern, global, democratic man.
Not God – WE are the racists. Let’s stop putting our own words and vibes in God’s mouth, as handy excuses for war, hate, chauvinism and unfair favouritism.
Don’t blame God for YOUR ideas. A “prophet” can say anything that helps himself or his own people. Blame yourself if you must blame. But preferably blame no one, just try to be better than what you criticize.
If we did that, everything might improve.
Not only has God no favorites, he is also not forcing us to make particular choices.
