Amazing Grace . . . lessness

11 January 2013, 09:10

“Johannesburg - An elderly couple was found dead in their home in Belfast on Wednesday morning, Mpumalanga police said.

"Their bodies were found by the police this morning [Wednesday] stashed inside a deep freezer in their house with their hands and feet tied with cables," spokesperson Colonel Leonard Hlathi said.”

…………………………………………………….

“Sara Ege, a 33-year-old mathematics graduate from India, battered her son Yaseen, to death with a stick in July 2010 when he failed to memorise Islamic texts, and burnt his body to hide the evidence, Cardiff Crown Court in Wales heard during the trial.

………………………………………………………………………….

“A prospective student at the Tshwane University of Technology has been gang raped at the Soshanguve campus, while waiting to register for her studies.“

God . . .

The Omnipresent . . .

The Omnipotent . . .

The GRACEFULL.

The articles mentioned above, are only a few of a thousand more horrific incidents that occur daily all over the world. God was right there when that elderly couple was bludgeoned to death, if he wanted, he could have intervened. He was there and he could have intervened, he is omnipresent and omnipotent. And what did he do about it? . . . He watched. He allowed it. Why? Because, my dear ill-informed atheists, there is some deep lesson we are to learn from it. Some deeper meaning that will one day be revealed to us. Besides, don’t question God. You know better than to question God.

There was a time when I thought maybe God suffers from SPE. Schizoid Personality Disorder. These are some of the symptoms of SPE:

  • Appears aloof and detached
  • Avoids social activities that involve emotional intimacy with other people
  • Does not want or enjoy close relationships, even with family members

Let’s be honest. God just does not give a fack about anyone or doesn’t know how to give it. You don’t actually comprehend to what extend God does not give a fack. Let me demonstrate it to you in a way a comedian once did: If God was standing on a very high cliff, and you were hanging off the side of the cliff, and all you needed was ONE fack to get back on the cliff, and you reached your hand out to God . . .

YOU: God, please! Give me just one fack. I don’t want to die. Please!! One fack, that’s all I need!

GOD: . . .sigh . . . I don’t give a fack.

I’m not trying to be funny. In the light of what we read on News24 every day, I’m being realistic. Let’s be realistic. God does not even have a close relationship with his own son. He killed his own son. He claims to have killed his son because he wanted to show how much he loved us. So WE actually have a closer relationship with God, then his son. God . . . please love me less. And then, after all he went through to prove his love to us, he allows a young girl to be raped by several guys while she’s trying to register at a University. Is God realistic? We can ask God why but . . . he “appears aloof and detached” . . . somewhere far away in the vast blue skies. He didn’t leave a ladder, or stairway, or a magic portal that can zap us to his place. Maybe, discuss these things over a cup of tea and Orios. Nothing of the sort. Aloof and attached, I say.

The biggest problem with God is, you can’t have a normal relationship with him. In a normal relationship, there’s two-way communication. With God, there’s only one-way communication. Even two enemies have two way communications so; they can communicate their hatred for each other. With us believers, it’s like we are talking to ourselves. No wonder religious people are considered crazy. God, you need to talk back to us. We need to sort out all these questions we have. It wouldn’t matter if we agree or disagree, as long as we are having a conversation . . . and, if you actually and audibly respond to us, we can finally settle the score with these atheist idiots who think you don’t exist.

There was a time when I used to think God suffered from acute SPD. Now, I KNOW he suffers from SPD.

Also, God, if you can hear me, I think it’s unfair that you talk to only SUM people. Like that pastor on that Christian TV show, where that guy called in and asked that the pastor pray for him because he is addicted to Orange Soda, then the pastor prayed and after he prayed he told the guy that he is now healed from his addiction to Orange Soda. How did that pastor know that the guy was cured? There could only have been one way . . . YOU told him. Because YOU healed him.

You know what, God. This will sound harsh, but I mean not to disrespect you (note how I always write your name “God” and not “god”. That’s a clear sign of respect. ), but you’d be surprise to know why atheist don’t believe. It’s not because they are convinced you don’t exist, it’s because you embarrass us. It’s embarrassing to be associated with someone who suffers from SPD.
