      God has a right to my life because He made me.

        As it appears that every person's God is different, it would seem that you have made your own God as well as God having made you.  You therefore have a right to God's life just as He has a right to yours.

      We have many attribute which we know did not originate from ourselves neither our parents.

      Some are still ignorant and by such the attribute it to a False God.

      Others understand fully and by such they attribute to Truth which is God.

      Many might need to believe in a higher power because of the limited mind set. Meaning not knowing their own power they possess.

      First off, I don't think God has right on me and my life, I know He has right.  Why?  Because without Him I wouldn't even have life.  Nor would anyone else.

      He is the giver of life.  We in turn should put the gift He's given us back into His hands so that He can make it all He intended it to be.

      As someone else said, yes He has all rights because He is the Creator.

    To pennyofheaven:  Believing in a higher power does not diminish the inner strength of a person.  In fact, it gives them more strength to accomplish great things.  Take Mother Teresa for example.  People who have a belief in God utilize their power to the best of their abilities because they know they have a mission.

      People have no need to believe in a god to do great things.

      Mother Teresa is a poor example considering she has come under fire and criticism for some of her scandalous acts. smile

        What if by solid belief, you could move beyond what is considered normal human capabilities. You do know, of course, that that is part of the promise.

          While it is easy and self-gratifying to fantasize about such things, reality exhibits something quite different. smile

            why do you add a smiley face at the end of all your condescending statements? its kind of creepy!

                sorry for any personal insults...didn't mean to, I just feel a little condescended to and would rather that you do that straight out instead of adding a silly smiley face at the end of it to implicate some kind of niceness.

                  You have no reason to feel condescended to, I said nothing to you personally. smile

        i didnt say that people need a god to do great things.  i was merely stating that strength is not diminished by believing (as pennyofheaven implied in her post.)  it can go both ways.

          Beelzedadposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          Oh, but it can have that effect, and does. Believers sit around praying for things to happen rather than getting off their *** and doing it themselves. smile

            thats a generalization and can go both ways.

              Not really. Sitting around doing nothing without praying to gods is at the very least being honestly ineffective. smile

        Mother Teresa: she admits that she ‘had not faith.’ Her letters reveal that for over fifty years she sought Christ but came to the conclusion that he was ‘the Absent One’. Her prayers to God for forgiveness only deepened her sorrow. The letters further reveal that her outward demeanor to the work did not reveal the sadness of her heart. She said that her ‘smile was a fake’.

        Mother Teresa did say she felt mystic about Jesus, I feel the same, and find the translation in the Bible are often wrong

        What scandalous acts?

        1. Beelzedad profile image61
          Beelzedadposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          The Keating Five Scandal, for one. The fact that she often took monies that were to go to the poor and use it for missionary work. Just a few. smile

      I agree that it doesn't diminish strength. My post was pointing at the limitations of the mind. It is commonly known we do not use all the power of the mind that we possess. If believing in a God helps use more of their own power than it is useful.
