I came to a realization, today…
I am alone.
50 years after my life started….
I have come to the obvious conclusion that there is no God.
For years and years I have prayed and prayed but, no one answers.
The only still small voice I hear, tells me to give up trying to find him.
Do you know why they say that God’s voice is too terrible for man to hear or impossible to understand?
No one’s ever heard it.
Let go, let God….
Let go of God.
Have faith, they say.
Faith in what?
Blind leading the blind…
In God’s own time.
It’s God’s plan.
Don’t question God.
God is great, God is good; let us thank him for our food…
Too many hungry people cannot be fed with faith…
Too many hungry people only pray for a piece of bread.
In God we trust.
Step over the homeless man in the gutter and trust you’ll never sink to that level.
Walk around the homeless woman and child and wonder why the kid ain’t in school….
Chastise her for being a bad mom…. In your heart.
So sad….The homeless and hungry.
Good thing you’ve got a friend in Jesus.
The state of the world is not God’s fault.
Were we not created in his image?
Doesn’t that qualify us as “graven images”?
I am a just God.
Then why weren’t Adam and Eve forgiven for the Apple incident, and given a chance to repent?
Waiting for your son, Jesus to die…
There is no God.
There is no heaven.
Thank God, there’s no hell either.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change…
That’s why we are sheep in the parables…
The courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.
I am wise to you, God….That’s the difference.
Believe in me and live forever.
Because, I told you to.
I just realized I’m still acknowledging this God delusion…
Bad habits are hard to break.
Believe in yourself.
Believe in nature.
Believe in love.
God is love.
Then quit loving us so much, because you suck at it.
For God and country….
Blood on the sand….
Guts and skin on the church walls.
Intervene and stop us, God delusion.
If God is in me, take him out!
Oh, that’s right.
There is no God.
We’re on our own here.
We’re doing this all on our own.
We’re killing each other over a non- existent deity that is worshipped a million different ways.
A Muslim believes as much as I did, if not more.
A Hindu believes as much as I did, if not more.
A man handling snakes in the sight of God believes as much as I did, if not for very long.
A Native American people believed until God smote them….
Oh, that’s right…
There is no God.
I am alone now, devoid of God and sin.
No one walks with Me.
God is man made, created in our own image.
Faith will only get you so far…
And it ain’t heaven.
Have faith in yourself contradicts the fiat of Faith….
Faith is the reality of what we hope for, the proof of what we don’t see….
We have free will and expect faith to change that?
Not enough evidence.
Not enough faith in what I can’t see….
Too much free will.
Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep….
On my own….
Just like it’s always been.
God came in handy sometimes, when I used to believe.
Who am I gonna blame, now; when something goes wrong?
God was a convenience and an excuse.
You mean I’m gonna have to depend on myself!?
My life is the reality.
I am really here…
So, what else is new?

I read this and I wonder what it is you want to hear. Acknowledgement that you’re right? That there is no God? Reassurance that there is?
Have you ever studied Taoism? It actually explains a lot, using logic rather than blind faith. As a philosophy it has no deity of its own. Yet I know a few Taoist Christians…
No, not acknowledgement, really or approval. I was just writing and thinking and working thru my little dilemmas. Of course I believe in God. I just don’t agree with man’s depictions or arrogance about knowing “the mind of God”. I believe in God, not religions.
Arrogance is a good word. Interpretations taken to an extent that they are the be-all and end-all and I’m right and you’re wrong and I’ll fight to the death etc. etc. ad nauseum.
Myself, I believe in something. There has to be more than this. But the bible, for me, doesn’t hold a definite answer.
We’ve corrupted God.
One of my adult great-granddaughters said to me, “I don’t believe in God,” to which I replied, “That’s okay; He believes in you.” Whatever “it” is…..the universal spirit…..God…..whatever makes the wheels of the planet go around…….there is, I believe, Something! The Bible is a wonderful book full of the history, poetry, and mythology of a tribe written and re-written by men through the centuries as a guide to our behavior. It is, sadly, not very kind to women, glossing over the first creation mentioned in which woman is equal to man. Oh, well……to each his own.
Oh, I believe in God, just not in man’s interpretation, arrogance and religions thereof.
You would be surprised what happens for those who truly believe.
