Do you ever wish you were God?
One of my friends likes to say "Every body wants to be God, but no one wants to admit it."
Nope. Because I don't want that pressure and sadness of watching people ignore that I exist.
Why would you care? You would have all the power in the universe to be happy or sad would be your choice. I would just create othe planets and enjoy creating. Come back to this one whenever enough people want me.
Being happy or sad is already a choice. The problem with that plan is war, disease, and horrors would attack the world you created. You could have done so much better if you had only watched over what you made. Does this sound like parenting types?
Beautifully put. God is here all the time and reveals Himself when any "one" person asks.
Let me rephrase. If you had the power to fix things the way you would like to would you like that?
No. My belief is that things are the way they are for a reason. God has a plan and by turning into God and moving things around, that would change the plan. Changing can bring more damage than good.
We already have godlike powers, but we abused them so very long ago.
Now, we depend upon physical memory and perception so much, that we don't remember who we really are. We think we are these Homo sapiens bodies, or -- worse! -- these egos we wear as false selves.
I only wish to reawaken fully so that I can have the freedom I've already enjoyed this lifetime of being outside my physical body with full ability to perceive, and full ability to create.
That takes humility (generosity, unselfishness, compassion) and faith (perfect confidence, fearlessness).
What your friend is talking about is ego speaking -- infinite power but zero responsibility. That's not love. That's selfishness.
Yes. I've often wished I was God especially when I'm in a situation where I'm powerless. However, the responsibility is also something that makes me cringe. I wouldn't want to be responsible for everything in the universe. Its just too much.
Yes of course... but it is just the result of being young.. But I still believe and love my God.
No! Never. You know how many horrible and ignorant people I would have to deal with?

One of the many stumbling blocks non-believers face in the path of christian doctrine is accepting the notion of a loving God, for how could such a God allow such terrible suffering down here on Earth? This is commonly known as the problem of evil and is usually answered by theologians with the...

Why should anyone go to hell?It's not our fault as human beings. We are all in the same boat called HELPLESS. What we do in life, on this planet, is a totally different matter altogether but finally it's not our fault.

Do you guys think it is ever possible for a relationship where one person tries to control the other using manipulation and/or threats can ever become a happy healthy one? Is it even possible?
