But what makes the 'inner man,' good, or honest?
I tell you this man strives for perfection by seeking to make the 'inner self' portray God.
I don't think that God's true Name can be known, by man at least. I say the word so you know what I mean, although it is up to you to think what you want, as the word has been charged by your own mind.
Is it not possible that you have painted a picture of the deity you read and hear spoken of. Is it not also possible that to allow this painting to keep you from knowing who God is?
you forgot that weakness is strength.
I am nothing, I am unworthy, yet I am loved, I am appreciated, and I am spoken to by God.
You should see a psychiatrist with that kind of attitude. You are not nothing. You are not unworthy.
yet I am loved, I am appreciated,
You have not yet fully felt humility then.
I say these things because I have experienced the love of God, and I could not help but feel humility.
I was crying and crying, I was speaking while sobbing, all the while proclaiming my joy which is entirely undeserved.
I imagine that this undeserving and unworthy feeling comes from being so unlike and far from God, yet at the same time we are close to have had experienced such humility.
If you choose to believe you are the result of random coincidence, then that's your right. But then what are you left with but a universe devoid of love, with nothing but plasma, empty space, rocks and gas floating mindlessly along without a thought toward you.
The grave doesn't care about you, whether or not you evolved, whether or not you have intrinsic or extrinsic morality. The universe you want does not care one iota about you. It can't think, it can't speak, it won't even last forever, even stars crash to the earth sooner or later.
What a faith you have, believing in nothingness. And you question our God.
If you have a universe of nothingness, devoid of emotion, love and compassion, then you should not speak against someone else who recognizes something greater and that greater causes them to feel loved.
You are a tiny speck in the universe, you are so limited by time and space and if all there is in the universe is the eventual end of all things, then don't insert love into the equation, because a universe of unfeeling has no room for love.
The universe dictated by physics has no room to even consider your thoughts about it. Volcanoes explode, lava kills people without regard to their lives. There's no room in the universe for caring about people. Floods come and destroy homes, without emotion. Tornadoes destroy schools without regard to what is being taught in them.
But you expressed anger over a God that exists beyond this universe that is mindful of man, whom He created. Why are you angry with God? Anger is an emotion. If you have the capacity for emotion, then it didn't come through random coincidence from an unfeeling universe.
You are the tiny speck in this universe, but demand to be heard. Talk about arrogance to speak in the voice of anger when there isn't even anything in the universe who would hear you anyway. Right?
