Crosses are Pagan
THOUGHTS ON GOD AND HEAVEN
Thinking about God and gods and goddesses,and angels and spirits and Jesus take up a lot of my time. Like since I could have a rational thought.
Being raised Southern Baptist was an interesting theological experience. God bless (see, I believe) my mother, she tried in every way she could to keep me out of Hell. Wanted me to walk the streets of gold. Now there is a thought, streets of gold, would God really want us to walk on something mined by man, culled by man and sold by man? I, for one hope not, it would be hard and slippery.
Now about halos. I have been told that I will have one due to the compassion I have for animals. I think I would misplace it, break it or maybe give it away, so I don't want one. I want a nice fluffy cloud with cable TV and air conditioning for the hot flashes and books, lots of books, or better web access!.
There are an awful lot of angels on TV in long white robes. I need a brown one. I don't know how I keep doing it but can stain a white shirt between the closet and the bedroom door. Worrying about that would be a bummer. I want to look nice wherever it is I wind up.
Truth be told, believing something man wrote to keep the poor, old pagans in control, God bless their polytheistic little souls. is still not clear to me. I hope all their souls are laughing at those men now, I know it sounds like I hate men. I don't, I just have a problem with those men who changed history for the worse.
Now there was a real man. He wasn't afraid to live on the rim of the Jewish society. He tried to tell us that not only he, but we are all God's children. Preaching unity, caring for each other and being a trainer healer, (he was trained in the temple) he helped others with his gifts. Kindness was his mission and he got strung up on a cross by who? Not the Jews, the stinkin' Romans. All of this was foreseen in the Old Testament and everyone knew it. There were several men vying for that position, some very worthy. But it was not a Christian belief, it was Jewish. Maybe that is why they don't believe he has come yet. If there is anyone reading that knows, please comment and get me on the right track. This is what I have studied in theology, however, I have found that everyone has their own interpretation, hence different religions.
War is not the way to go. Too many of our men, and their civilians are killed and that is just plain stupid.
Have you ever noticed that everyone believes that God is on their side? If God is on every one's side no one has a snow balls chance in Hell ); of winning.
This is how we should do it. If another country or we decide we are going to war with another somebody, we send over 5 men or women, I don't care who, but they should be very good at poker. The rules are: No drinking (it might encourage that fighting thing), Whoever wins 4 out of 7 hands wins the war. No quarreling and no going behind anyone's back to cheat. No excuses, nothing, that's it, the end.
OR we could send over whomever rules over the countries waging war and let them box it out in a ring on world wide TV. Again, no cheating, blah blah blah. however, these rules will have to be read every 30 minutes so these people and their people remember. Keep everyone's "their people" in a room with no communication, just a TV and popcorn.
Since I choose not to believe God cares about poker or boxing, we all win. No dead bodies, no starving babies, no mass stupidity.
Each of us has the right to believe and live as we wish. Don't go around doing incredibly inane things. Start with the stupid and you go away from the rest of us, Someplace miserable. Maybe we could talk the Russians into lending us a plot in Siberia. We could send them away with a toothbrush and underwear. We don't need them back. If their crimes are not too bad, it's off to London Tower with a toothbrush and pj's. Nobody wants to go to those places, they would rather be in jail with 3 squares, a cot and medical care. All jails will be converted into homeless shelters.
The whole religion thing is that every religion believes they are the only link to God.
Everyone of us is of God. Created and loved.
Now, anyone who has read my Hubs knows I consider myself a witch. I truly wish that wasn't a horrible label, but it is. I think it should be naturalistic believer. I believe in God and Goddess and Angels and Spirits. God/Goddess can, but shouldn't have to do this all on his/her own. We are a handful!
