God: The Origins Of Evil

Sunday, October 08, 2017

 

The idea that God is omnipresent is poetical. It is very difficult to believe that God is everywhere.

Is evil a reflection of God? The answer is very disappointing: yes. Evil is a reflection of God because according to God, everything good and bad came from him.

If you say, ‘No bad thing can come from God,’ you are creating a bigger problem. People will begin asking you questions like, ‘When everything besides God was nonexistent, how can anything come from [anywhere but God]?’

So, good or bad, it is God. That is what it is.

God is very cunning and he has nothing to lose. Secondly, you must have seen people who will say every good or bad thing to you, but they will not allow you to return any good or bad word to them.

However, you are so far and away from God. Even if you want to say something to God, you can’t reach him. He is carefree. He is not approachable because he is inaccessible.

He enjoys his isolation and his isolation is his strength.

I don’t think he would appear before the public. He makes decisions and he knows he is not answerable to anyone. Just imagine if you are not accountable for anything. Anything you do or say, you will get away with it. You would become a monster, wouldn’t you?

So many good people live in this world, in the United States of America, Canada, Europe and all over the globe. Still, we have certain laws even though good people exist.

You’re only good, my friend, as long as you are law-abiding.

If you do not abide by the law and there is no control over you, and there is nothing that can restrict you and your choice, you will become a monster.

So God is deprived of this restriction, which could really correct him. He is uncontrollable, but the good thing is he is far and away. He enjoys his isolation and there is nobody to pinpoint him for his right or wrong decisions.
