God Allows

To Be Human

Does an ant worry about who created it as it scurries about hard at work every day? Does a bird stop its singing and not fly anymore because it worries over why it is here? What about a beaver busily swimming in a pond and bringing fresh cut limbs to its hut and the dam it is constructing, suddenly ceasing to work, because it wonders why it should be doing this in the first place, and what its purpose is all about? What of the early man in his cave cutting up fresh meat for his family? Would he stop hunting meat so that his family could survive? My answer and so is yours most likely, a resounding no, to all the questions mentioned. Why would a Creator of the whole Universe plant within mankind's mind the ability to doubt His role in creation and making this man in the first place? Our Creator loves his people so much that he allows them to become doubters of Him and the world around them.

What would we feel as fathers and mothers if our young child were to come to us and say that they did not believe in us as their parents? What if the child told us , in addition, that they were not going to respect and mind our directions and roll as their parents? We would be devastated and then angry. We would be saddened and determined to make this child behave as we wanted them to. First of all, our God created us to be able to doubt Him and then He went about the job of winning us over.This is what I believe. He gave us every opportunity to make the right decisions in our lives.When He saw us slipping away from Him in our devotion and beliefs and the way we were living our lives, He sent signs, angels , and miracles to keep His followers. As time moved on, God sent His great prophets, as Moses to help inspire and lead His people. At times the prophets lost their ability to lead and this is when God sent His only begotten Son, in Jesus, to help save the world and its peoples.

God had all in place ahead of time in order to win souls and save His people from sin. He knew that within each of his creations there was the seed of rebellion and a nature to go astray. This greater challenge was made in order for those who were the recipients of God's Grace, and ability to doubt Him, could be won and kept as believers and followers of the word. His Son Jesus was sent as the final sacrifice for Christians to see and make the decision to follow Him on the correct path, leading them to abide with God in Heaven. God loves us so much that he gave us the chance to accept or reject Him as our Father. Many of us have become like the prodigal son in the scriptures who wandered away from his father and the secure home that he once had. God welcomes us back with open arms to His Word and heavenly home. We are His children and the fruit of His labors. He wants us all to join Him and not to have to leave any behind in the Last Days, told of in the Holy Bible.

There is no greater love for man than to give this important choice to him and in the process have an aching heart because His children make the wrong choices in their lives. Just as we see our own children behave as they do, we hope with all of our hearts that they make the right choices that we have tried to set before them in raising each one. God loves us and shows us this every day that we are alive. When we die and leave this earth, our choices that we have made will decide where our souls will abide forever, with our God, or outcast beyond the light of the great Spirit in Heaven. I believe we each have this right given to us and make the final decision.

My beliefs are my own and I do not want others who have their own minds made about their existence to think I am trying to force my beliefs on anyone.

You responded to a denied comment. Why did you bother posting a comment, if you deleted my comment? You make no sense. Now your hub has your comment, commenting to something no one can see. So in essence you are talking to yourself. I was only pointing out that each person selects(chooses) their own purpose by creating it themselves. If not, then they do not understand their own life. Which is my main point. I didn't say anything with regards to your beliefs. Yes, they are your own and you posting them on the Internet, isn't keeping them to yourself, but is expressing said belief. You've a lot to learn. Good luck going forward.

What is sad, Cagsil, is that you talk in circles and really know nothing. You say "the only reason (anything? an animal?) would doubt why they live is because they hadn't established their own purpose of living"

So living creatures don't doubt why they live because they haven't established their own purpose of living? Is this because they have no ability to establish their own purpose of living as that purpose whatever it be for each various animal is innate (instinct) in them bestowed by their creator, they have no choice of purpose.

We on the other hand have choice of purpose and you would submit that without the power to choose your purpose for living "it proves you do not understand your own life"? Yet in the previous paragraph you demand that one's purpose must be "beyond you, your individual self". So you contradict your own statement by demanding that one's purpose must be what you demand, a selfless purpose, so it is you who is granting the purpose by putting limitations on it, thus you are not allowing anyone to choose their own purpose so anyone who accepts your reasoning is in your own words "not the authority and have no right to make any choices. You are to be told exactly how you must be and there is no two ways about it." And this is bad in your opinion? unless you are the one deciding the parameters of the purpose? which is exactly what you are doing.

I'll pray for you because you really need prayer.

Hey Tsad, animals, normal everyday animals have no need for a purpose and actually do serve a purpose naturally. So, what's your point. The human species is a different kind of animal compared to that of the average animal, let's say a deer or a dog or cat. Each serves a purpose, a purpose human beings use for their own benefit. Our individual purpose shouldn't be used for our own benefit, because to do so would make one selfish in purpose. As for me talking in circles and nothing coming out, you're one of the most funniest people I've ever met. You mock me, then claim to be of some higher position? Look in the mirror. If you pay attention to the words I use, then there will without a doubt, be something to learn. Next time, do try not to get into arguments with other people who post comments on hubs that are not your own.

One of the things that distinguishes us from animals is free will. Instinct does not completely drive us. The ability to choose is what makes love genuine. This includes the ability to love our Creator. Along the same lines, being able to choose what we do with our life is essential. It is a real blessing to be able to love your vocation. God does not dictate how we live our lives. If we choose to ask God what is best for us, he encourages or discourages a particular choice we are considering. I agree with whonunuwho's final statement that we are given the right to choose. However, I believe this right is given to us in every aspect of our lives.
