If he existed, i'd reckon right now he'd be considering another great flood, but this time he wont tell anyone to build an ark.

There are too many boats now. If god exists, he might consider other ways of getting rid of the human infestation, like getting the world leaders to start a war a few years ago.

Greetings T_Kman0610,

I am not sure whether or not your question is intended to be rhetorical, however...

I would like to point out that God does not "think" in the same way a person thinks. We cannot attribute God with human qualities or try to otherwise personify him/her.

God is the entire Universe, and God therefore accepts everything in the Universe as an aspect of him/herself regardless of how it might seem in temporal terms to human beings. Everything happening in the Universe is subject to many immutable laws, one of the most exalted being that of cause and effect; therefore everything happening on this planet are a whole series of effects which were preceded by a whole series of corresponding causes, all of which are part of the natural rhythm of the Universe. The ultimate objective for a human being is perfection, and that is a matter for human beings to achieve over aeons of Spiritual development, some of which takes place on Earth, before ultimately continuing in the higher spheres of reality.

Man is an integral aspect of the Universe, of God, just as God is an integral aspect of us, and humans must therefore learn that everytime he hurts the environment or another human, he also equally hurts an aspect of himself, not only that, there is a karmic price to pay. This is all part of the grand Universal scheme of things which is God.

I hope that answers your question [Smiley]

With best regards,

Adrian.

Well said Adrian, though, my belief is that God is even greater than the universe; God is not limited to the powers of the Universe.  God is of the highest authority, he controls all, and all is a part of God.  The molicules in your body, to the orbits of satalites around planets, to the orbits of the planets around starts, to the orbits of stars around galixies, all of this is controled by God.

T_Kman0610,

Is God thinking?  If God is thinking, wouldn't that make him imperfect, having to think before he performs an action?  Does not God know eveything, past, present and future?  When God created man, even before he created man, he knew all that would befall man kind, God even knows of the next creatures he will create, creatures that we have no knowledge of, and perhaps creatures that will be far more superior to mankind.

good point, but what do you think his feelings of how we act on earth are?

1) Abortions, Cloning, Adultry, Lieing, Stealing, Murdering, Mass warfare and killing of innocent civilians, Gay marrages, Opression, Occupation, Mass disbelief in God, The worship of others over God, The will of one Imposed on another, Slavery (still exists in parts of the world), The worship of Satan (Not all satanists actually worship satan, but there is a sect that take satan as their god), The misstreatment of Orphans, Corruption in Religious and Political leaders, the list goes on and on.

2) Belief in God, Many adhering to the 10 commandments, Trust, honesty and benevolence (though in the hearts of the Minority it still exists), Love, Peace (Not really a good word for our times), The care for one another and Human needs (Very small minority, America only gives humanitarian aid when it needs something from whom it is helping), this list also goes on but it is much smaller than the above list.

You decide.  The Myan's ended their calander on the year 2012, perhaps the begining of the end is sooner than we may think?

G'day Folks!

In my humble opinion, the world is perfect, and is exactly the way God intended it to be.  This is regardless of how or what you conceive to be the existance of God, eg, a universal force or a divine personality, or both.

All the bad things in the world, the trouble and strife and turmoil, cause change and generate growth and evolution.

If we did not have all these bad things, we would not have anything to struggle against. With no struggle there cannot be evolution and spiritual growth.

We live in a world of contrasts, eg, good and evil. But good cannot exist without evil and evil cannot exist without good. The area of interaction between contrasting forces, eg, hot and cold, light and darkness, is the area where change and growth occur. This is both a physical law and a spiritual law.

A physical example of this is ligntening.  Lightening is a destructive force that causes great harm worldwide. But without lightening, life itself could not exist on our planet. Lightening creates nitrates as it burns its way through the atmosphere, and all life depends upon nitrates for growth, eg, fertilizer. By this measure, removing what we consider to be all the bad things can have harmful long term effects that often cannot be clearly seen.  

War, for example, is the process whereby opposing viewpoints, beliefs and ways of life increase and spread out to consume others. The stronger belief or way of living always wins, of course, and in the long term this is how human society evolves. This also applies to the evolution of all species, including the animal and plant kingdoms.

If you consider all the good things alongside all the bad things in life, you will see life in action everywhere.


Food for thought...


Take care, Robert.

i think God is saddened by those who live in sin, as He always has been.

i also think He is likely peeved by those who choose to act evilly based upon evil desires, in full knowledge that they are doing evil, and without remorse for what they do. as He always has.

and i think He is very happy with those who choose to do good things, whether it be in His name or not (after all, at least a part of the purpose of God's will is that all people love one another). as He always has.

the world is really no different than it was two thousand years ago. evil people still exist, good people still exist, and neither-good-nor-evil (a.k.a. neutral) people still exist. the only difference is that there are new religions and new ideas (ie, new understandings of psychology) and new methods (ie, unicef vs. drug lords) of propogating "the same old" good and evil.

Thats one of the many reasons I hate human society.

We have a terrible tendency to anthropomorphize *God* and subject him (for lack of a better pronoun) to our limited perspective.  All of this stuff that we see around us: love, joy, peace, hate, crime, suffering is just creation in action (God dreaming the dream of creation, if you will).  We are all spiritual beings, parts of the whole of creation in the process of being perfected.

From a physical, human perspective that process is subjective; bad, evil, & imperfect, but from God's perspective it just is what it is - creation unfolding according to a perfect plan.  God is not disappointed or surprised or anything else by what we do.  God just *is* and all of creation will ultimately fall in line with that.

I believe that as we learn to rid ourselves of ego, we draw closer to the mind of God and are more able to put into this perspective those things that we see happening around us - and the more we will learn not to judge things (Jesus, I believe had perfect understanding and was able to reconcile this duality perfectly - as we ultimately must learn to do).  Also as this process of perfection occurs we become less concerned with judging what happens around us and more concerned with allowing the process of spiritual transformation to happen in us.  And that is what will drive large scale change, - not legislation or self-discipline or tyrannical rule or religious authority - but gazillions of spiritual beings slowly yielding to that process that transforms human nature into God's perfect nature.

hello, im postin this up for an oppinion and a comment from people who believe in our one and only creater GOD, and i would not like to offfend anone so if i have im sorry. i have kinda wondered what GOD thinks about the world today and what we should be doing other than sinning, examples: porn, affairs, killing, cheating, lying etc. what does he think? what you think he thinks of us? im thinkin hes kind of ashamed of us, im thinking hes looking upon every wrong doer in the world and saying "tisk, tisk, tisk". i bet hes sayin man what monsters ive created! what we should do is start cleansing ourselvs of the evil we have developed, and evil deloped by us will only make evil more powerful when the war has started. What do you think about this? WHAT IS GOD THINKING?

If God were human I would think he feels like most parents who have raised really bad obnoxious children.

"Where did I go wrong?"

I highly doubt he'd blame his children for what he would surely feel was his own fault.
