The God I See
Looking at God
The God that I envision does not go under any particular religion but rather that he is the Holy Father of all living creatures of our Universe. No matter what our shape, color, or financial status none of this matters in the eyes of our Holy Father. As he loves us all equally and unconditionally as we are all God's children.
I can't imagine the horror he must feel when he looks down to see us killing our own species as well as others with total disregard for life in general. Many have killed in the name of their so-called religious beliefs; covering their dirty deeds in a cloak stained with the blood of many innocent victims. Many of which were condemned to death for practising their religious beliefs within certain societies where their particular religious beliefs had been banded.
I have always been amazed by people who on one hand are praying to their god or gods and the next they are off to kill some heathens! Many of these dreaded acts were done all in the name of their holy leaders or leader. I am sure the Holy Father is appalled by the horrors we are inflicting not only on each other but also towards other creatures and plants that share our home (Planet Earth).
We are starting to come apart at the seams with natural disasters; wars amongst ourselves; we are running out of time! Maybe all the natural disasters are happening because God is venting his discontent with us. I'm sure he is not happy at the total disregard we seem to have towards each other and the world we live in.
We must really try to start uniting as one; finding ways to fix our world before there is nothing left to fix. I believe the Holy Father would rather see us giving each other a hand in trying to restore some of the damage we have done; rather than in hand-to-hand combat all in the name of religion!
I was raised in the Roman Catholic faith but when I became an adult I chose my own way of expressing my belief in God. I chose to express my love and belief in God in my own way rather than the rituals of a good Roman Catholic.
Religion is man made it is also well known that there is big money in religion. I am not saying that all use their religious choice as a way of making profit or financial gain. Unfortunately there is many that do use the cloak of religion to acquire their ill gotten gains.
I believe God wants us to treat others the way we want to be treated. I know this sounds pretty simple but it works for me! I know God loves me no matter where or how I pray to him.
