Is he cruel or indifferent? This is what I think is the more accurate question. If one takes the Bible as a template for God and his personality, we
are being short changed! So it brings up the question: does God care? It is the job of priests to use fairy dust to temporarily heal a parishioner.
But it doesn't last, and it often creates great anger against God!
Here on ATS and in most situations there are generally only three possibilities:
God is cruel as the OT shows and hence, does not deserve attention. So if this is God, and this is who he is, then I don’t believe he exists. A real
God would not be this way. So science is the only explanation. Or…
God is a super underachiever who twiddles his thumbs – plays the remote control of our lives, and doesn’t listen to our prayers anyway, but sits
back and does nothing. Or…
He’s a mean perfectionist that requires one to obey all of his Biblical (fill in the blank book) laws, and if you go astray you will not receive his
blessings, nor go to heaven, but will end up in hell, or at least shunned by him, or re-incarnate into something undesirable.
I wish to throw in a fourth option! In doing this I am not defending God or any of heavenly congress. They don’t need it, nor are they codependent.
I am only giving my viewpoint and experience with him/them. It may be easier to do it in story form:
“In the beginning there were Gods that belonged to a hierarchy of rulers in the cosmos. These Gods were each given their areas of supremacy. Each
could do with their realms as they chose.
Jah (or fill in the blank - God of your choice) decided to create the heavens and the earth. He had lesser gods that fulfilled their roles as well,
some of them – dual roles. Being a new ruler and eventual new parent, He decided to create man. His goal being; to eventually derive at a superior
being that could be used as a template for future civilizations, and in this he needed to work out the kinks. After all, this was his first
experiment, and humans are the testing ground.
All the Gods in his organization decided to make a Game or contest of it. In this contest he would consider many options. He would put his finger into
the creative process with the designing the first human couple But…this wasn’t his only option. He could also utilize another creative idea and
that would be to; help man evolve through natural selection. In the first, he would be more involved in the outcome. In the latter he would leave it
up to time and a natural process, that some would call; chance. We as humans would not know for a fact which he chose, or even if he chose both
Early on, the Gods made a consensus that “free will” would be necessary in order to allow man to make his own mistakes and to see how this would
affect future generations. “We will throw the dice and see what turns up! Let’s see what man does with his free will and what he imposes on
others. Let’s give them a head start and give them the choice in something simple. We will install a fruit tree in their garden telling them to not
eat of it, of course we suspect that they won’t be able to resist, but it will get the dice rolling. Our goal is to not produce automatons, so in
this they must have choice, and we must create a scenario that gives them that. Eventually, we will achieve what we want. The clause being: there will
be cause and effect, choices and consequences. There will need to be a limit to their free will; otherwise, this experiment of ours could end rather
To help mankind along a little further, they decided to create some Holy Books. It became very evident soon after when; the humans wanted rules
imposed on them, as they weren’t so comfortable with healthy individual choice. So the Gods obliged them with hundreds of rules. They made these
rules next to impossible to obey, in order for them to see the foolishness of their ways. But man wouldn’t have it! They then decided to worship
these rules and to make them their life. In order to control those around them, and gain access to power.
The Gods watched.
So in keeping with the Game, the Gods helped the writings along by allowing humans to tell their stories and to orally pass them on. Eventually, these
stories were nothing like the originals but this is what man wanted. Man wanted to believe that God would burn people in hell and developed high
requirements to go to heaven, both being figments of their imaginations.
None of this establishing and progression of humankind was done frivolously. At the very inception, the Gods placed a time limit on the evolving of
man and society. They didn’t need an eternity, just enough time to work out the kinks and to see the best ways to deal with man. After all, this was
only the beginning and not the entire picture.
In order to allow free will in its basic sense, they needed to do as little interference as possible. In this they would look irresponsible or even
cruel, but it couldn’t be avoided, if this test was going to work. These Gods quickly learned that although most of mankind would act like sheep,
not all would! It was with those that showed gumption, tenacity and non-conformance that continued to get the Gods attention. The rest…oh well!
Science would play a major role in all of the cosmos and it would be no exception with humans. Later, humans would adapt and would use their gray
cells to discover all the many levels of science. Humans learned about DNA and how they could actually inherit the sins of their fathers.
How many children come into the world inheriting the sins of their fathers and end up being psychopathic murderers to serial killers? If a good mental
health professional (working with real sick individuals) can easily put 2 + 2 together to = a sociopath, then wouldn't God have the ability to see
that if two of the sickest produce a child, that the odds are; that the child will environmentally inherit their disease, if not biologically inherit
their tendencies? Why wouldn't he abort these pregnancies before fruition? Alcoholism can be an inherited disease. Why doesn't he stop this genetic
problem? Or prevent the births of future addicts? Because it would interfere with the natural evolution of man.
The Gods would allow man to pass down their defects and assets and even conditioned it so, with the human cell. This would create traits and
dysfunction that would create a history of problems; again… a short lived one in their eyes. For their time works differently.
In all of this, the Gods would be watching and searching out individuals who went against the tide, those who would stand out as different. In
reality, God can be loving and at the same time; indifferent.
They would let man fall into error and die. Their energy would then go back to the Source and would be passed down to a future lemming. This energy,
spirit, or soul wouldn’t become pure, but would remain as it was when it left the last body.
It can be likened to a savings account, where a genetic virus or sin debt accumulates and has for millenniums. Humans have reached an energy level
that is over-drafted. When the debt is due because of sin overdraft, the existing person whether they be child, or adult, is liable for the debt,
regardless of who they are as people. The debt is due and has run its course. This is why bad things happen to good people!
Some of them would inherit better energy while others would not, and would suffer their predecessor’s defects. It would be a natural selection that
would produce natural results. It would in its natural science - keep nature in balance.
With free will, man would be given a choice. “Does he want to be a casualty or the exception?” The consequences of free will are that; God cannot
protect us from ourselves; it has nothing to do with God. Some would inherit too much defective life energy and would not be given this chance. Again,
the natural laws of the universe. The Gods may actually have a plan for these unfortunates, but it is not for humans to know this for sure. Not yet.
This brings up another question: like most parents, does he also have favorites, or at least ones he relates to, more than others?
So the Game has been drawing to a close and the Gods are becoming more active. They begin to make known their thoughts and to step up mankind’s
evolution. Cause and effect are in full speed. It is time to wind things down, time to go to the next level.
“Enough of man’s laws, disorder, and chaos. Enough of man controlling man and abusing their power. And to think! Man actually thinks he is going
to take over the world? We will bring an end to systems that control and govern over man’s conscience. Most will act like gerbils trying to crawl up
and over their peers to get to the top. But it won’t work. We will bring into account the sickness of man that we have allowed to reign, and will
look for those who don’t fit in their land.”
“We will make much more knowledge available to those who care to search, question, and find these truths. The answers will be there, in all fields
of knowledge. Those who want to access our divine order and love will do so. We’re in the End Game now!”
