I've been trying to puzzle out how I'd arrange things if I was god and had to deal with people so far divorced from me they suspect that no such things as dieties exist. …
All our weaknesses all our lives Satanic forces probe with knives
So how are frightened souls to know if holy spirtit fools forgo?
All our lives are filled with doubt and no faith to help us out
How can we find the way to go once god's spirit we don't know?
You can't have faith unless you know. Faith is the assurance you get when you have checked and double checked and then checked again. You absolutely KNOW that when the switch is thrown the circuit completes. All the dominoes HAVE to fall in the right order in the right direction.
And you know all that because you have installed a failsafe device. And double checked that. Then gone over it all again.
The term faithful means completing a perfect pattern of conformity. And this conformity confirms your faith.
In other words; you can't have faith in anything until you have mastered every aspect of the problem you hope to supply an answer to. Until you know all the reasons why an event might not work out and the main reasons why it could go wrong.
So how are you supposed to have any faith in a god you don't, won't and can't believe in?
How are you supposed to have faith in something that every line of your reasoning tells you there is no god?
How would you prove yourself in all your magnificence if you were our creator? Apart from providing every individual with their own personal testament or miracle, you'd have to have something that stands up in court against the charge of coersion, threat or blackmail.
Reason and logic?
Is that enough?
It requires that the people who are so convinced of the rightness of their beliefs they must examine every aspect of every religion professing to study and worship the original and most true. Something their reasoning and logic tells them is impossible and unwarranted.
So now you know why I am not god. I don't know how to do it.
