Billions of years ago, God made a Divine Plan. It was a good plan and he
put it into practice and for billions of years now, the Divine Plan has
been doing well.
Then you come along and pray for something. Suppose what you want isn't in God's Divine Plan? What do you want him to do? Change his Divine Plan? Just for you? Isn't that a little arrogant of you.
What's the purpose of having a Divine Plan if every rundown schmuck with a two dollar prayer book can come along and fuck up your Divine Plan?
If what you want is not in God's Divine Plan, then you might say it's God's Will. If it's in God's Will, why pray for it? It all sounds very confusing.
The Divine Plan would make us into automatons. If we supposedly have free will, then the Divine Plan isn't worth squat.
You saw me before I was born and scheduled each day of my life before
I began to breathe. Every day was recorded in your book!
If God has a plan, then everyone who died in the alleged Holocaust died for a reason. They had to die, and each death had meaning. Therefore, alleged Holocaust victims could pray all day, and they would still die. The idea of a "plan" makes the idea of a "prayer-answering relationship with God" a contradiction, doesn't it?
Hitler is blameless. Hitler was not "evil," because Hitler had no free will at all. Hitler was simply an actor forced to play his role in God's plan. God planned for millions of people to die in the alleged Holocaust -- he planned their deaths in exact detail
If prayers were really answered, why do children die of cancer?
Were the parents praying for the child's death?
Prayer for the purpose of making a request from a supreme being is an affront to the supplicant's dignity. If God hasn't made up his mind about your fate and is waiting for you to grovel first, then he is not a very noble deity
For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease.
Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that
strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten
thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.
Are you a happy 6 year old living in Siria that goes to school and has a loving family?
God: I've got a better plan. How about a civil war that will kill all your friends and make you flee in terror to a refugee camp where you will live like a rat for years, watching how Europe dosn't give a fuck about you because they think a 6 year old girl is a terrorist and while two global superpowers fight in your home country only to gain control over the natural resources in it. Nice.
Born in Haiti? Dreaming about saving money and go somewhere else where you can fulfill your dreams?
God: Hold up, how about a massive earthquake that will kill your parents, destroy your country and force your older sister to become a prostitute so you don't starve to death? Oh and by the way your sister will die of AIDS in a few years.
Are you a homosexual 16 year old boy living in the US? Have you fallen in love with someone else and would love to be with him just to be HAPPY?
God: Too bad the guys that worship me think you are sick and are going to make your life miserable. The guys in highschool will bully you and your family will hate you. But of course, I don't give a fuck.
Are you a grown man living in Nigeria? A fisherman? Working hard so your kids can go to school and live a happy life?
God: Next time you go for a swim by the river i'll make sure you get Acanthamoeba keratitis, a bug that will burrow in your eye and eat it from the inside making you blind so you can't work anymore and your kids have to quit school and start working. Man I worked hard on this one.
Living in Sierra Leone? Is your life shit because your government is corrupt and there's nothing you can do about it?
God: I think its time for the biggest outbreak of the Ebola virus disease.
Are you a 4 year old living in Spain?
God: Siesta, fiesta and a bit of bone cancer. Oh by the way euthanasia isn't legal so you will have to scream in agony knowing you are going to die. But at least your parents will be there, asking me why i'm doing this. But hey, I love you.
DISCLAIMER: I know it's unethical to use sarcasm to describe these real-world situations that make people suffer. My main goal is to get people to see how arrogant and selfish it is to worship a god that has only brought misery to this world, and still does today.
If we want things to change we need to take action. And that includes making people stop believing in gods. Christianity (and other religions) are still killing people out there. Whether it's hunting down homosexuals or preventing people from using condoms. We need to make it stop.
Make everyone understand the truth.
Thank you for reading. Mako
