Yes He is. And a funny one as well. That’s why I kind of love him in the most non-religious way possible which is why I say kind of. I don’t believe God was so lazy that He created the world in 7 days…like as He was hanging out in Heaven He had no time to make it all in one day? (according to the Bible a day in God’s Kingdom is 1000 years so, wow…took a long time to make a basic planet with life and all it needs to exist). I think He is more effective than that. Also, to involve God in a day by day life seems sort of insulting for Him. I see people often saying how “God wanted it like that” , “Was God’s will to not get this job”, etc. I mean, being God must be a busy job it’s like a manager of the world, so I am sure He can’t sweat the small things. If you didn’t get a job it means you didn’t meet the criteria which means you are not good enough. Also, if thousands of people died cause a hurricane or tsunami or earthquake, God is not necessarily responsible, I mean He doesn’t wake up one day wanting to kill a bunch of people and innocent children. However God has plans for all of us so this is probably the only cliché I actually agree with. He is nothing if not a planner so I do believe that there is a point He is trying to make with every soul He sends on this Earth.
You remember the Bible episode when God mixed people’s languages? The ones who don’t: Read your Bible!. The ones who do, well, how funny is that? So a bunch of men were working to this tower and God mixed their tongues so they can’t understand each other J)) (good one!). So He is funny which is why I believe He digs evolution and many other things that we don’t give Him credit for. I also believe God is energy. A very good, positive and creative energy, but I prefer to think of Him as being some sort of guy I would have a chat with over a hot cup of tea and discuss my life when I will eventually reach the point to be able to actually discuss it. (oh boy, do I have a set of questions for the dude!). This idea brings me to my other belief, concerning praying…which is actually a bunch of talking (sometimes yelling cause I lose it looking what happens around me and sometimes ironically which results in a full reproach like: “Really?!”, asked toward the blue sky), I do prefer to talk to God, because He would probably dig my thoughts better if we actually had a conversation….but that’s just me and my conversations with Him are not always smelling like roses, I am human, I am temperamental, I am guilty.
Also, I think if God wanted to end the world several times (flood, fire, whatever catastrophes are expected) He wouldn’t have invested so much time and planning to create it (7 days, 1 day = 1000 years…that’s a long time, right? The jury is confused here a lil). Plus, he is cool and he doesn’t have the heart to punish us for being stupid…He knows we are, it is obvious we are, really! Hmm, I don’t believe God is self sufficient because if He was we wouldn’t be here. Beside the fact that we entertain Him quite a bit, there are angels, spirits and other forms of existence that keep Him company because He created them so…the guy doesn’t like to be alone. –to be continued-
