A fallible god is a weak god and a weak god will be crushed eventually...in fact show me that god and I will destroy him to proclaim the title
of god...but that sounds ridiculous.
This tells me you will never be a true god. Weakness is purely subjective. Have you ever watched Dragon Ball Z? I enjoy the series. The main
protagonist, Goku, is strong enough to blow up a planet, but when he has his enemies on the run, he will actually stop and promise to let them go if
they apologize and never return. Others would have destroyed those enemies out of fear of retribution, but he was fully willing to spare them out of
What one calls weakness, another calls strength. There is no honor or love in destroying something that is weaker than you. For this reason, I do not
kill spiders or insects that cross my path when I'm in a building. I will either ignore it, or I will take it to a safer location. A bush or a tree.
Because if I destroy something that is weak, what happens when I encounter something that is stronger? By all rights, I cannot fight. If I fight, I
disgrace those creatures I have destroyed, for I fight for my life when I didn't give them the chance to live theirs.
The point of this whole post is to show you that a fallible god is NOT a weak god. In fact, it is those fallibility that can give us a reason to keep
fighting, a reason to win. Some might call love or compassion a weakness, but in Goku's world, that only gives him a reason not to give up. The same
goes for Naruto, and all sorts of different move and book characters that were willing to give everything they had to protect the ones they loved. And
because of their sheer determination, they won.
I don't think you understand what it is to be strong. I don't think you understand what it is to be weak, either. And you are a perfect example for
the rest of the human species, which does not understand ANYTHING of what it is to be a god. My point is proven. Thank you.
We will not admit that god is the unimaginable, that point far beyond our consciousness that we simply cannot comprehend, a being that is Omnipotent,
Omnipresent, and Omniscient who wants for nothing yet all want for that god (to return and reconnect to your source).
We only want a god because we're afraid. We are afraid for ourselves, and we want Big Daddy to save us from the shadows of our nightmares. If we were
godly, we would cast aside this "God" in a heartbeat. We would seize power, and we would be our own gods. We're only religious now because we are
frail and frightened, and we know it. Do you know how many criminals who are not religious decide to turn to "God" just before they die? All of them.
They are all afraid. They are afraid of what comes after, afraid of not getting another chance, afraid of retribution for everything they've done
wrong. They don't do it because it's their duty as children of whatever higher power. They do it to save their own asses. They do it as an insurance
policy. Their last act of desperation.
That's the nature of the human species. Fighting death until the very end. That's all the Christian god is. A way out of the inevitable. We wouldn't
need a god if we didn't regret our lives. We wouldn't need an afterlife if we'd lived the one we had. People who are satisfied just don't care what
comes after. They've played their song, danced their dance, and they're ready for whatever is next. The people with regrets are the ones who need
"God". And that's the truth.
