Ok my idea of God kinda differs from what I hear in the Bible.
I was listening to Psalms it was talking about offering sacrifices and the wrath of God against ones enemy.
But we all know who the real enemy is. However you want to name it…. How ever you want to think about it… We know there is evil that lurks. I guess becoming an adult was understanding how REAL this evil is…. Both outside and with in.
But a question that came up for me is…
Why would god need a sacrifice? As I pondered in my head, its not for energy or for money. I guess what came to mind is if God did not take the life of “Satan” or what have you… Why would God suggest to take the life of an animal or human?
The entity said….(I didn’t ask it) to prove obedience.
But its usually of the ones who are already obediant at least in the bible. I just don’t think that God would need for us to prove anything. Because “he”already knows. He put us here, we were created. IT is there whether we acknowlege it or not. Just me.
So we go through our trials and tribulation. Thinking that God has left or is testing us. And he’s not.
I was talking to my mom the other day when the woman that was considering suicide triggered me. And my mom said something to the extent that God made a bet with Lucifer on the souls of humans. Now conceptually I understand the idea…. Don’t do bad don’t let the devil win…..
But why on earth would God make a BET with Lucifer? That doesn’t even make sense…. Lucifer/data/ devil whatever is beneath him!
And why would he even give Lucifer domain?
Some would say that I am wrong for questioning God…. But I’m not questions God…. I am questioning the information that is presented. Because it doesn’t feel right and its not adding up.
But alas…. I will head to my grandmother’s advice, and keep it simple. I believe in God.
