GOD


Please note these are my views and mine alone. There is nothing new in my beliefs. They have existed and been believed in one form or another since the beginning of time.

I believe in God. A God. One god. No trinity...no three in one.

I believe that you and I are an extension of God. That there is a little bit of God in every living thing. We are all connected, every person, every animal, plant, rock and organism. You can call it a soul or spirit or whatever you like. But it is within each of us. Biblicly, we could say it is the breath of God. God created the world by speaking it into existence...with his very breath. He breathed the breath of life into man.

Here goes the tricky part. God is good and evil. (dont freak out) We are all inherently evil. God created man in his image. The Bible, in Isaiah 45:6,7 says:
'That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, I create evil; I the Lord do all these things.

Ok, let me make an analogy here, it may be a bad one but I'll do it anyway. When I create a sculpture, I must have that a particular desire to create it. The vision of what I want to create must be within me already even though I do not always start out with a picture of what I wish to create in the beginning. So in order for God to create evil the concept had to be within him in some capacity. Make sense? If we accept the premise that nothing existed before God, and that God created evil, then we must accept that God is both good and evil. When God created the angels, including Satan, he gave them a freewill as he did us, to choose good or evil. That evil was able to influence one third of the angels in heaven to turn from God, just as evil influences us. I do not believe that we all start life innocently, that we are all inherently good and influenced to do evil by our enviroments or experiences. I believe it is a choice. To do good or evil is a choice each of us makes, consciously or subconsciously. For the ability to do either, resides in all of us, given to us by God.

Even though I do believe that God is a God of love, I believe we tend to overlook the God of wrath and vengence. For God is all things not just love.
Take a good look at the world around you. Do you see the suffering? The hunger? The pain? God allows these things just as he allowed Job to be tested by Lucifer. Recall that Satan went before God and proposed to test Job's righteousness by inflicting a new torment upon him and each time God's reply was the same:
'And Satan answered the Lord, and said, skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will he give for his life.
But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse thee to thy face.
And the Lord said unto Satan, behold, he is in thine hand: but save his life.
So went satan forth from the presence of the Lord, and smote Job with sore boils from the sole of his foot unto his crown.'
Job 2:4-7




These are but the tip of the iceberg on my beliefs, as with most of you my beliefs are wide spread and varied. (to the point I dont even understand them all. They range from God to pantheism.) As I said on the Cavern page,
'There are more things in heaven and earth Horatio,
than are dreamt of in your philosophy'
