Apology from God
Muslims, Christians, and Jews all follow leaders who are inspired by the Old Testament. But have you noticed no one has talked to God or written about that experience in over 3,ooo years. What has he been up to all this time?
So have you guessed who I am yet? But if you meet me have some courtesy. Have some sympathy, and some taste and use all your well-learned politesse. Granted from what you have read about me, I deserve none. But when was it, the last time you ever heard of anyone ever talking to me. I mean you have prozac for those people now. Back in the day you would of had Moses fixed up with enough stuff to knock down a charging Rhino in heat. For the most part the Jews closed the book on all future prophets in 586 BC after the destruction of the First Temple. See they just published this book and rewrites were hard back then, being done all by hand. The Bible is a big book that helped many short people see above the steering wheel and get many little kids closer to their Cheerios. Imagine writing that, all over with a duck feather? Now that is all before the New Testament, Strictly Torah.
Yep, you guessed it! It is me God. The YHWH. The Iehova or Jehovah for you Germans. I am What I am. But I still have not figured out that whole Popeye thing is of yet. Must be some Odin Reference? Now when you were a teenager, didn’t you do some stupid things. Granted my Terrible Twos had some diverse consequences, floods and all, but I was learning. There are reason why teenage pregnancy is a bad thing! Come on you really think I was trying to keep you guys in the dark, I planned for you to get that apple. But you had to earn it. Ever try hiding the cookie jar on top of the refrigerator? Or even better, have someone hide it on you? Now didn’t that cookie taste better afterwards. Remember all the fun of underage drinking and premarital sex? Hmmm... Tricky! I f you did not earn freedom and self will, you would of let it go a long time ago. But I still question America, they dropped it like hot cakes. They love my old dear self. The terrible father in the sky who rules by fear and control. And great propaganda. Here jesus asks me to remind you that Heretics in latin means those who see with their own eyes open. Blue states Rule in a world with not much to choose from though.
Now back to my story...
Yes, I did pick some real losers. I associated with them because the were the most like myself. In my Image. There was the incident of Noah being a drunk, but who would blame him. I asked him to save his own skin and let the rest of the world die screaming around him. Then some can hold me accountable for the large amass of riches Abraham profited from his cowardice in front of amorous Kings. In fact it was all Saharah’s work. Then the whole middle east issue because of the contraceptive drug I gave her to protect her from those kings made her Barren for eighty years. Oops! Or for giving Hagar such ample features. Or Bathsheba for that matter. But it still does not justify my glory I placed on David after pushing Saul closer to death or sending Uriah to his. This was the first parting of the red sea, you should of seen all the soldiers break and leave him standing alone with only the sound of crickets accompanying him in face of the enemy. Even the crickets hushed after they realized what had happened and retreated into the night. Just so he could get Bathsheba’s Nookie. So I had some problem’s, sue me. You probably win, we never get much of a defense team up here.
But, but, but that is all old news.... I gave you a bow after the flood, how about throwing the old man a bone. Can we forget about the age of prophets and mythology and see what I am today?Yes! I have been vacant for some time. But when time does not exist for you.
It is hard to notice. So it is easier to get lost in yourself. Or away from. I have ben doing allot of both.
Now what got me was Job. Lucifer was trying to shine the light on my faults for centuries. So I could grow up and become happy he says. I guess he was right. But on that hand with Job, I had all the cards stacked against him. Towards the end I ran out of ideas to make his life miserable so I just took to throwing empty pistachios shells on his head from the depths of the sky. When some one asked him if he hated me for all that I did.
He said no!No!No!In fact he loved me more.
Man did I have a hissie fit at him! That whole Leviathan comment and all.
But it got me to wake up. Granted I was in a bit of a stupor. I think for you it was about four hundred years. Give or take a century. So when Christ was trying to atone you to me, you showed up on the doorstep but I was not home.
Do you know what I have been doing for the last fifty years, keeping those in your societies that have fallen into homelessnes, insanity, and drunkenness company. At first, because their image is how I felt about myself. But then because I cared for them. I loved them and suffered with them. Unfortunately they only stay in Heaven a short time, but they get royal seating on high altars. Karma cycle brings them back to try to do better. But it is not them, it is you! You who abused them or turned you head from them. There was no one innocent in Nazi Germany.
I should Know. A group of Jews in Germany after the Holocaust put me on trial and sentenced me to death before they went into evening prayers.
Maybe if I spoke to some one sooner to teach you to learn from my mistakes instead of follow them. For the Bible more than The Prince teaches tyrants to rule.
But like the man just freeing himself from the cycles of AA meetings, I am entering healthy balanced society. I am learning to see that the grays and those in the middle may be more than indifference. Their could be merit to placing a fire house in the center of the city. Or a Community house fro that matter.
So if you meet me have some courtesy. Have some sympathy, and some taste and use all your well-learned politesse. Because I have learned allot!In fact I am still Learning!So can your own father. You have every right to call him on it, but never hate him. Just realize we had it worse than you did!“Nietzsche believed there could be positive possibilities for humans without God. Relinquishing the belief in God opens the way for human's creative abilities to fully develop.” ...... “The recognition that "God is dead" would be like a blank canvas. Like an open sea, this can be both exhilarating and terrifying. It would be a tremendous responsibility, and, Nietzsche believed, many would not be up to it. Most people rely on rules and authorities to tell them what to do, what to value, how to live. The people who eventually learn to create their lives anew will represent a new stage in human transformation.
It is widely believed that Nietzsche himself "proclaimed" the "death of God", but it should be acknowledged that in Die fröhliche Wissenschaft (The Gay Science) he put the words into the mouth of a "madman". In this passage, the man is described running through a marketplace shouting, "God is dead! God is dead!" He arouses some amusement; no one takes him seriously. Frustrated, the madman smashes his lantern on the ground, crying out that he has come too soon: people cannot yet see that they have killed God. He goes on to say, "This prodigious event is still on its way, and is traveling— it has not yet reached men's ears. Lightning and thunder need time, the light of the stars needs time, deeds need time, even after they are done, to be seen and heard."
