Here we go... watch before your very eyes as this promising intellectual discussion on the subject of Popeness degenerates into an unapologetic
p#ssing contest of who's religion is the best.
Who didn't see that coming? God himself is shaking his head in frustration at you fools.
News-flash to all spiritual neanderthals: the same god made you all
, and that very same god is beyond fed up with all
of your sh#t -
equally! He doesn't play favorites... because we're all One. - Yeah, One big mess of pitiful beings hell-bent on self-destruction & lost in the
visceral depths of our own corrupted egos and seemingly-boundless naivety.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, pope boy!
...whatever, man... as far as I'm concerned, placing your trust in another human being to be a reliable middle-man for god & god's "word" (no matter
how righteous their intentions may seem) is, plain and simply, spiritual suicide. The pope knows no more about god than you do. And if you think he
does.... well, may god have mercy on your soul. Or some such nonsense.. I don't really care about any of this to be honest. Catholicism is as
redundant to me as floppy disks in the modern world. Sure, you can rely on it if you want to.... but you're fooling yourself if you believe that the
old ways are best. Religion has had its day... and the "Grand Deception" isn't coming - it's already been perpetrated upon us.
God has never, and will never, resort to Fear to procure obedience from its own Creation. That defeats the entire purpose of... well,
. It's like a computer programmer creating a game and then punishing the characters in the game for disobeying the programmer's
orders, even though in order for the disobedience to be possible in the first place, the programmer had to allow the characters to disobey his orders
in the code he wrote. What kind of narcissistic paranoid deity would behave in such a manner - and yet claim to come from a place of Love?
Not our deity. Only human beings are that rudely bold and sadistic. God - the benevolent creator and source of all
things - has nothing to
prove to anything or anyone. He simply allows us to be, and shares (quietly) in the experiences which we all choose for ourselves both collectively
and individually. And all this is done rightly so! We see this concept as "bad parenting" in modern society. But realistically, what we're faced with
is "total freedom". Which, in the right light I suppose, can be seen as "bad parenting"... or it can also be seen as "unconditional love".
Or, of course, you can subscribe to the nihilistic belief that the universe is the result of Nothing creating Nothing out of sheer Nothingness
following a split moment of random chance... a directionless universe of Nothingness which is perpetually unfolding into more Nothingness with no
inherent purpose or sense to be made of our complicated lives as sentient creative beings whatsoever... a giant Nothing that keeps evolving into more
Hmm... personally, I find that concept nearly as absurd as our dogmatic religions. But believe what you want. You've got it all wrong - God doesn't
! Whatever you believe in - God created it! Therefore it cannot be wrong - nor can it be right. It simply is
. It merely exists as an
"option" - an option which you choose. You decide if it's the right one or not. And no matter what you pick - you're not wrong for whatever you
believe. There is no right or wrong - only the consequences of your actions.
So - choose your beliefs wisely... because God's not doing all this for his own glory or for the recognition & empty praise from his own
creation - he's doing it for you
! So that you might live, and choose, and be. That's Love. Not this eternal Hell bullsh#t, or this "original
sin" crap, or the whole "give me coins and I'll clean your slate" abuse of religious authority (which used to go on - I don't even know if it still
does or not since I'm not Catholic)... not to mention the whole pedo thing, which requires drastic scrutiny from all human beings to understand and
solve this important issue!
But in any case, I digress. the point is: God loves you no matter what you do because you're a part of "him"/it. You can't not
be loved by
him/her/it, since nothing can possibly exist outside of existence itself
(aka - God).
Brothers.. sisters... if you fear any aspect of God, then you've got it all wrong. And religious institutions like Catholicism are firmly rooted in
Fear. So f#ck religion, and f#ck the pope. That's my opinion on the matter - not that anyone cares lol
Peace & love! Please, anyone who reads this - focus more on what unites us and not what divides us, as division is an illusion. Unity is the true
nature of all things; however, we live in a very delicate realm of precarious balance. But we are all still connected by the same 'energy field'. And
it's past time we behaved as such!
What You Think; You Become.
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; as it becomes your destiny.
