I mean talk about overkill. Couldn't god show up once and a while and say, "hey uh, could you not do that buddy? It's really not in your best
interest to be so (insert sin here) Let me tell you why..."
That is very interesting that you would state this whatukno. Why is it that people think that God has to show up, or that God is not here right now
working through and in us, or that God left in the first place? Bliss is ignorance! Isn't that the saying? God is us. God is all around us. God is
ever present right now. Take a good look around you. What is that voice of reason within you?
If I were going to do something that I would consider to be wrong (such as steal, cheat, murder, lie, etc...) a voice comes on in my head and tells me
not to do those things because they are WRONG; and then again, there is another voice that tries to balance all of that by denying what is wrong and
doing that which is the exact opposite; trying to convince me to do what is wrong.
People, and scientists, have tried to map the brain and say that this is our consciouss mind, our ego or alter ego, or our subconsciouss mind. But, is
this really true? Or, is God doing exactly what you are claiming God is not doing? Has God been communicating with us all along? And, do we not make
the choices that we do after hearing our inner voice of reason(God vs. the Devil)?
Let me answer that for you. Like a loving parent, God works through us all right from the get-go. We choose, via free will, to listen to God or tune
God out. Upon making that choice, we either choose to accept God, or listen to and accept the voice of the devil. By denying God, we give in freely to
the devil and do what is wrong or bad or evil. When we choose to listen to God's voice, then we develop a sound mind and we can see the work of evil
around us. The evil one always continually tries to tempt us. This is evident all around us at the present time.
Try to give up a bad habit. The good voice in you will tell you why to give up the bad habit, and the benefits of doing so. The evil voice will try to
counter that which is good and tell you that you can't do it, and tell you why you are unable to do so. If you tune out the bad voice, and listen to
the good voice, then the evil begins its works through people around you, or uses other channels (tv, radio, signs, etc...) along with very well
orchestrated thoughts to try and persuade you to continue on in doing what you already have been told is wrong. The evidence is within you and around
you already; it literally abides all around you. Ultimately, it is yourself that makes the decision to continue doing or not doing that which you
should or shouldn't.
Anyhow, I have much experience in this. I know it's true, and it is wise for me to help you because otherwise you will be a lost cause. The world is
in a bad place, and God has always tried to make it better. Afterall, God really is Love. 1/3 of God's Holy Angels rebelled, and they continue to try
and take us with them into their deceitful ways. That is the whole truth. These angels that rebelled are more powerful than we are, as humans. They
will be destroyed as biblical text foretells. You have a choice! Whether you look for the answers in the bible, or ask for God's guidance, that is up
to you. God will help you, God has been trying to already help you, and all the rest of us. God will redeem us in the future as fortold. You are loved
dearly by God, just Love God back; that's all God asks of us.
I'm poetic, as some already know. Here's a poem to end what I have said. Take Care.
Everytime my eyes open, I am reborn into the World
A chance for change, a change of desire, a desire for change
Everytime I open the door, a whole new World awaits me
New discoveries, different miracles, a change of theories
Everytime I speak, my life changes, A refreshed knowledge
Different wisdom, new words, a changed meaning
Evertime I help, ones' life recovers, anothers' discovers
A chance to heal, a change in others
Everytime I sleep, my thoughts gather
A chance for hope, a change in wishes, a desire for my
Wishes to have a chance to give hope,
And to change this World for the better
