IS GOD MERCIFUL?.

IS GOD MERCIFUL?.
Like this post I will bring up a subject, which I have never heard or seen before.
DOES GOD HAS FEELINGS?
Think carefully. Yes or no?
It takes a soul in order to have feelings. Does God has a soul? No!
So, God does not have feelings. Nowhere in the bible you can show me that
God has feelings. The Jews were in captivity in Egypt for over 400 years.
What crime did they commit in order to get such a punishment?
How can you watch your chosen people in slavery for such a long time?
Only if you have no feelings.

How about killing the first born in EVERY Egyptian family?
You can do that only if you have no feelings.

Moses left his wife and his two sons, in order to take the Jews to the promised land.
He spent 40 years in the desert suffering along with the other Jews.
For his sacrifice, he asked God for only one thing: Let me go inside the promised land. The answer was: NO. You can do this only if you have no feelings.

How about when God asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac?
Can you imagine what kind of anguish Abraham went through?
Only one with no feelings can order someone to do such a thing.

Also, do not forget when Moses went on Mount Sinai to get the ten commandments
he had to spend one month there, which was not easy for an old man like him.

In our modern time, many people are wondering how could God watch the Holocaust for so many years and do nothing. Of course the answer is: only if you do have feelings.

There many other similar examples in the bible and present and the past time, where you can see clearly God has no feelings.

Now, that we have established that God has no feelings, let me ask you, why people go to church to pray? Most people pray for health, mercy, money, better life and other personal problems. Well, if God has no feelings, he does not give a damn about your problems.
Correct? Why would he? He does not care at all, because he has no feelings. So, you are wasting your time. Even though some people may know this, they still do it. Why?
Because one time in the past their prayer was answered, and even though many times after that their prayers were not answered, they still hope that their prayer will be answered.

So, why people do pray, even though they have doubts about God? Because they
do not have any other choice and because they make themselves feel better.

Another thing. When something GOOD happens, people say: Thanks God.
When something bad happens, God`s name is NOT mentioned. Why?
Because, we were brought up that God makes ONLY good things and the devil
makes the bad things. WRONG! God is responsible for good AND bad things.

In final, God does NOT care about anybody as he does not have feelings.
You can pray 24 hours a day, he will not even here you and even if he did,
he does not care. Why would he? With no feelings, He does not get anything
out of you by helping you. Anyway, all you got is HOPE and with that you will
live all your life.

I know many of you disagree with me, but just wait for my explanation.

First, let`s take some facts from the bible.
Moses, the most prominent person from the bible, after serving God for 40
years, had asked God to let him inside the promised land. The answer
was a big NO. What did he get for his service? Remember, he left his wife
and his 2 boys in order to serve God. Was this right? Of course not.
But, wait! He committed 2 sins and some people say that is why he was
denied his request. Then where is the mercy?

Second, God let the Jews to be slaves for over 400 years. Why so long?
If he wanted them to be punished, less years would have been enough for
the chosen people, don`ta you think? Besides, the Jews have never asked
to freed from slavery in order to die in Sinai dessert.

Third, let`s do not forget the killings of the first born of every Egyptians in
order for God to get the release of the slaves from bondage. Was really
no other way to get the Jews out Egypt? I am sure it was. I think, God
enjoyed to kill those people in order to show his power. Where was the
mercy that time?

Fourth, turning Lot`s wife to a pillar of salt for disobeying God ONE time, showing that God had no mercy.

Fifth, do you remember when the fire was holding back the Egyptian army,
while the Jews were crossing the Red Sea? Why the fire had to disappear
in order to drown the entire army. They were not guilty, they were just
following orders. Where was the mercy that time?

Sixth, what about the Jews killed when those people waited over a month
for Moses to come back from Mount Sinai and they lost faith and built the
golden calf? Dedan`ta they deserve the second chance? No mercy?

There are many more examples like this in the bible and even more in our
ordinary life. The most obvious example is the Holocaust, of course.
I do not need to go in details too much to show you how God little mercy
[or not at all] to 6 million dead Jews and many survivors as well non-Jews
who died and those who survived. How could God watch what was going on
with those people and do NOTHING? Was really no mercy then at all?
How could God watch how innocent people, including children being gassed
and killed that way?

How about the hunger and the violence and the war and the diseases and
the miseries and the unhappiness what is going the world today? The people
pray and go to churches hoping that will make a difference. Will it?
Hell no! You can pray 24 hours a day and still will not make a bit of
difference. Why? Because God can NOT hear you! Do you think God can hear
every person in this world [we are billions of people in this world] at the SAME time?
You can not even listen to 2 people when they talking at the same time. I know, you will say God is different. Maybe so, but God does not give a damn about your prayer.
You may pray 10 times and one time you may think that your prayer was answered.
After that you will think that will happen every time. NO WAY! It was an accident. But you will continue to pray thinking that
God will help you. FORGET IT. That is where people making the big
mistake. Anyway, you have no choice, but to hope for the best.

The way I see it, every person when is born have already a pre-determined
destiny. Your life is about 80% is determined and the other 20% you will
determine. For example.

When you are born, it has been scheduled that you live between 70-80 old.
That is for sure, but you will determine if it will be closer to 70 or 80, by
smoking, eating habit, exercise etc.
You must have 2-4 kids. However, you will decide if it will be 2, 3 or 4.
You will be an engineer. However, you will decide what kind of engineer
you will be, like electrical, civil, mechanical etc.
You will be married at the age of 30-35, but you will decide exactly at
what age. Are you getting the picture? God has nothing to do with
your destiny. God will try to make your life as miserable as He can.
Just look around you and the world. If you count on God, then you are
a lost cause. Of course, you will not going to believe me because you were
brought up differently by your parents. Just look it this way, if you were
brought up in a Jewish house, you will religion will be Jewish, if you were
brought up in a catholic house, you will be catholic, if you were brought up
in a Muslim house, your religion will be Muslim and so on.

We were brought up that God is good and the devil is the bad one.
So, we associate good with God and the bad with devil. Right?
WRONG! There is no devil. Devil was created in the mind of the people
as everything has an opposite. Like, day and night, up and down, right and
left, top and bottom white and black, hot and cold, life and death etc. So,
if there is a "good" God then must be a "bad" devil. No, no, no. There is
a good God which is also a bad God. However, it is more bad then good.
Just look around this messed up world or even yourself. Are you happy with
your life? NO Over 80% of the people are not happy with their life.

Everybody is scared of sickness and death. So, they will pray and ask God for
mercy. will they get it? Hell no! Remember, your life has been determined
at your birth. If you go out in cold naked, you will get sick no matter how much
you will pray to God not to get sick. Agree? God can not and will not help you.

Why am I saying that prayers are useless?
My mother was very devoted to God. She was a natural.
She was very religious since she was born. Everyone loved her and she had no
enemy in her life. She died of early age of 66. That was not the problem.
The problem was how she died. She died of pancreas cancer. She died
in big pain, she died of starvation. She did NOT deserve to die like that.
I can not describe you how she begged God to let her live a little bit longer
but was not to be. Where was the mercy? If anyone deserved it, it was her.
Now, my uncle was real saint. He did everything what was required for him to do
in order to serve God properly. He loved everybody and everybody loved him.
He died of age of 70 of colon cancer. Did God had mercy for these saints? Hell no.

And you think that God will have mercy of you which you are far away to be a saint? Why would He? He enjoys MISERY, and we plenty of them.

Prayers are made to fool the people, making them hope for the better. It makes you feel good, but do NOT expect any results. For every good things what happens to you, 2 or more BAD things will happen to you. Just watch it. Enjoy life as much as you can, as things will get worse with time. If you put yourself in God`s hand you are a lost cause.
Rely on yourself and on people you trust.

You may not agree what I wrote here, but read it over and analyze it carefully as well as your life and you may found out that is at least some truth what I said. After that, please, give me your comments. Make sure to take your time before reply.

I know this something different what you have heard before. Probably, you have never heard anyone saying NEGATIVE things about God.

As an ex Christian, this will not sway the believer in my opinion. They trust that god does everything for good for the believer even if it seems bad. Romans 8:28. The problem of evil is not a problem for Christians to answer.
