This may be one of the toughest threads I've ever written on ATS.
But it involves ATS by way of a thread I was just reading, so I wanted
to write it while the feeling was still fresh. In my years on ATS, I have
always expressed an unshakable faith my Father in Heaven and Jesus
Christ. From the time I was just a boy of ten years, found on my own,
thru my own thought and choice, despite what the world tempted me
to believe. I haven't lossed that faith as of today.

But now, I must admit, while reading another thread here on ATS just
awhile I ago.More precisely, a remittance to the thread that highlited
this song.



Coupled to thoughts and feelings of that instance. I have suddenly
noticed cracks in the foundation that houses my whole philosophy
of life and happiness, my faith. Indeed, God himself can not deny
the haunting repetition, that is played out in the world over, by
this one ghetto scene portrayed so perfectly in this song. And felt
so deeply in the singers voice. I suddenly felt a deep sorrow.
How could God forget this little boy? And further more, how could
he remember me, if he has forgotten him? A quick silver feeling has
crept over me and hardened. It has left me with a nagging, that we
may be so petty and useless, that we all have been forgotton. Hoping
some of the great believers here can break out there concrete glue for
me? I need to mend this fissure. But all comments of course will be
welcomed accordingly.

No, we haven't been forgotten. Here, watch this. It might help.

It sounds like you are experiencing Dark Night of the Soul. It is a real phenomenon. Look it up and see if this may be what you are going through. Faith is a fragile thing to hold onto sometimes, especially when you look around and see so much pain and suffering in the world.

I am agnostic.

I have often wondered: why must I believe in God if I can make God believe in me?

Please don't worry about the little boy, HE is GOD. YOU are GOD. WE ALL are GOD experiencing all things, ALL things. YOU are eternally, unconditionally LOVED. Think what you like.a reply to: randyvs

Thank you Blue, this is at the very least extremely interesting.
I've watched up to " The masks of eternity". And am sure to resume.

I want to speak more to this however I'm on my way out the door.

Interestingly, that very song spoke to me very deeply as well at a rather young age.

I think you are experiencing a 'dark night of the soul' and seekers experience them. They have led me over the years to the faith I have, that actually is conisistant and works in my day to day life. But it is not what you think.

I'll be back.

I will look this up queen. As my dislike of this world man has
created for himself. Is deeply impeeded by the love I feel for
every person in it.

Remember, most of things we experience here on earth are a direct function of our actions (or inaction) toward on another.

Remember also that we know that in the last days it will be terrible, it will be dark. Whether we are there or not, we know it will only get worse. Human suffering will only increase, and this will happen because of human behavior. We have forgotten Him. We do not honor Him, and we do not behave toward one another as though we honor Him in thought, word and deed.

The best we who are faithful can do is to continue to be who we are and treat others as we should. Because we are here and we are being what we ought to be, not all of the light will go out of the world. But if you let if pull you down, it will get that much dimmer.

An entire universe has been created for us yet we are still unhappy. It certainly proves that the path of the ego is suffering. You need walk the desert as Jesus did and fight the real enemy of your happiness.

I would most likely be consumed by such a walk.
But still what you say rings as true as bell.

Okay.

I guess I misunderstood your deep philosophical message.

But you did post an Elvis YouTube video.

You are right to ask these questions and think critically about a supposedly loving and caring God who allows this scene to play out on a loop.
Also allow kids to die of the most brutal diseases and other horrors that happen right around and across our planet.

People will say it's free will and God has a plan for everyone but if gods plan is to allow pain and suffering for innocent beautiful kids and adults who have done nothing, then I don't think that's the kind of God for me.
Since I was a young kid I could never reconcile this or other cruel things that God allows.

I don't believe in God - haven't done since I was a kid.
If there is a God then its nothing like the God we've been told exists, if God has the power to act and stop these things and yet doesn't, then that is cruel.

It may seem simplistic and I'm sure people will quote all manner of scripture and crap written by men, purporting to talk for God but forget it, you dont know.
