Realistically, do we really believe in God or do we think we are fairer than Him? Is God unfair to women? Is God unfair to homosexuals? Is God unfair to sinners?”
Some say there is only one God, some believe there are several gods, some think there is no God, and among other beliefs, some tell if there’s a God then there has to be a Goddess. Realistically, do we really believe in God or do we think we are fairer than Him? Is God unfair to women? Is God unjust to homosexuals? Is God wrong to sinners? If God created the world and everything in it and if He allows everything to happen, then, is He fair or unfair? If we say God is unjust are we in the position to forge the equality that we think God didn’t create? Are we still defined by God”s command?
Who labeled women weaker sex? Who ordained men to lead with wives and concubines? If a man’s nature leads him to indulge with multiple partners, should he change that nature for the sake of modernity? Should women do the same things men do even if it’s against God’s plan? I ask these questions because today it seems that our society defines the proposed will of God. Traditional teachings are now seen as ancient rhetoric that does not apply in our time. Funnily, God is immortal, man created time, therefore, Gods’ command cannot be outdated. If we follow this thought process, the quandary comes where we decide that there is either no God or the God we want is not the God we have. We cannot see Him. There’s no way to prove if our ancestors gave us a different God than the one we want.
Our society continues to evolve so rapidly that the demand for GOD has dwindled. We are now in awe of our own creation as opposed to when people were in awe of God’s wonder. Now, humans justify their immorality without scrutinizing their hypocrisy. The fact that hypocrisy exist proves the contrast between what was and what isn’t as it appears that the only way to be at peace with ourselves is to redefine morality and equality. Today, we believe that the slave is equal to the master, the bastard is similar to the child born in wedlock, women are comparable to the men, and same homosexual relationships are the same as heterosexual relationships. We frown at anyone who views life from the traditional point of view. We’re saying, we are fairer than God.
Who will dissect the facts when many are too intoxicated to bother, too busy to care or too brainwashed to question? Who will scrutinize the circumstances when the pleasure of immorality is far too entertaining than the dissatisfaction of obedience? Our prowess is guided by instinct, and those who believe in God also know that those instincts should be guided by God’s will. Do we still teach our kids that God created the Universe, but because of our weakness and our inability to obey His command, He has also damned us to hell? That we are under the teaching that babies are pure and children should be kept innocent? That sex is an act that should only occur between married heterosexuals? And a child born out of wedlock is deemed a bastard? Teaching that stipulates why a man’s last name is carried by his wife and the children she conceived for him?
How did we move away from God’s definition of marriage to now creating our own?
Religions vary in belief but there have been a few regulations
that remain the same until now.”
A few years ago I delved into the subject of cheating to answer the questions – What’s cheating? Is cheating an offense and if so who is it against – God, spouse or both? I questioned the idea by scrutinizing the source of the notion. When was the term, cheating, introduced? Since the definition of fraud is social teaching, I intended to identify when it was presented to our society. How did we move away from God’s definition of marriage to now creating our own? Religions vary in belief, but there have been a few regulations that remain the same until now. In my experience, sex and murder are the two main things that influence the way our society is defined. For example, every religion prohibits killing, if you murder someone in cold blood you are bound for hell. And every religion forbids premarital and homosexual relationships.
The main reason why the gay marriage had not been legal all along is that, in the past, society was a lot more religious than it is today. The reason why women had to protest for equal rights is that previous religious teachings had described them as the weaker sex that was there specifically for companionship. Therefore there was no need for them to have those rights. Racism stemmed from the slave and master belief which is also condoned by religion. Our entire difference today is on those who wish to maintain religious traditions against those who want to for them to be changed. However, the question remains; are we fairer than God when we exclude His teachings from society? Human civilization is headed in a new direction. Some call it’s a new world order while others call it progress. Are we progressing without God?*
