There is a group on Facebook (the name doesn’t matter), that generally seeks to do good, with a “pay it forward” sort of attitude. And that’s great. I have no problem with people being good to others for whatever reason, even for their own religious reasons. As long as they are good to others. I have no interested in religion, other than to see if it makes its followers more kind and considerate, generous, caring, and compassionate. What people believe is less important than what they do.
But today, someone posted this message to the group:
“I believe God puts us in certain places to be where he cant.”
Umm… what? What happened to the Omnipresence of God?
“I also believe he answers our questions when we ask but so many of us just dont expect an answer we never regonize it when it comes.”
Seriously? No, God does not answer ANY questions. Never has, never will. Now, devout believers will deny it, but they have never actually had a conversation with their god and actually received an actual answer FROM THEIR GOD. Sure, they talk to the ceiling, and then they look for signs and then INTERPRET events as “answers”. And that’s just ignorance and superstition. If they were actually having a genuine conversation, they would get a definite and direct response EVERY TIME; they would not be sent chasing after signs and looking for symbols.
It is utterly ridiculous to pretend you talked to your god (talked to the ceiling), and just stumbled onto a random Facebook page, and ta-DAAA! THERE’S your answer. That’s just idiotic bullshit.
Wake up, lady! It’s all in your head. You recognized you’d become bitter and changed from being the kind of woman you wanted to be and once were. Your own conscience recognized what happened, and your own conscience knew how to let go the bitterness and return to the kind and generous person you used to be. You do not need signs and symbols to figure that out.
And from what was written it sounds she surrounded herself with needy people unable or unwilling to reciprocate during her hard time. Making herself indispensable to needy people is not healthy. She needs to surround herself with humans who understand reciprocation, each within their own means. Duh.
