See, God was giving a hint when he said:
Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment.
If ET were actually TRUE, and a person ACTUALLY believed it... they must have a rough time with that first commandment. How could anyone who really and truly believed that about God (ET), how could anyone love such a vile, despicable, dishonorable "god" ???And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."
Oh, yeah... that's not any better.
Ok, God I love my neighbor with all of my heart. I love my neighbor as myself!
God: Gee, that's too bad. Your 2nd child, who just passed away? Guess what.. I hate to break it to you, but she didn't believe in me, so she's going to suffer for all eternity. Well, sorry about that. Oh yeah, and Lucy your elderly neighbor that you loved? yeah, you guessed in...she's suffering too. Forever. With no hope. What a shame, huh? All that loving you did, was kinda for nothing, I suppose, huh?
hmmm. Yeah, so some entity takes your child and casts them aside like dirt, oh wait, no it's worse than that, your child is actually being TORTURED. FOREVER. With no hope of relief...(hmm, makes God worse than Hitler, eh?) and you're supposed to LOVE this entity with all of your heart? YEAH. Guess what??? AIN'T HAPPENING!!
You CAN'T 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind.' if you TRULY believe in ET. You just cannot. It is an impossbility. And those who ACTUALLY believe in ET And say they DO love the lord their God with all their heart, and with all their soul and with all their mind... are liars.
Sounds harsh. Calling someone a liar. But think about it. It's a lie that runs just as deep as the lie of E.T.
They are lying to themselves. There is no LOVE in FEAR!!! "NO LOVE". HELLO?????? NO LOVE IN FEAR.
This is why people have nervous breakdowns. E.T. <---- trying to reconcile that with a God who is "love".
You CAN'T reconcile it. There is NO reconciling it. Because it simply isn't true.
A lot of people who believe in the "ET" god... y'know, a lot of them don't actually belive in the "ET" part. Deep down they are hoping that God will work it all out. But still... their love still probably is mixed with a lot of fear.
NO love in fear. So, still.... the love isn't "with ALL of their heart. With ALL of their mind.." etc. Something is wrong. God is showing them that SOMETHING is wrong. It's the FIRST and GREATEST commandment for a REASON.
To make sure people search Him out and KNOW Him...and believe the right things about Him.
HIS YOKE IS EASY.
y'know... what if God... just wants to be loved... like the rest of us?
What if God just wants to be... Loved?
sometimes I'll see something.. like a flower... and think.. what if God is thinking "Look here... look what I made for you! Do you like it?
God just wants to be loved.
As much as we crave love...
Maybe God just wants to be loved.
Just like the rest of us.
Kinda makes you love Him just a little more, doesn't it?
From The Color Purple:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Shug: More than anything God love admiration.
Celie: You saying God is vain?
Shug: No, not vain, just wanting to share a good thing. I think it pisses God off when you walk by the colour purple in a field and don't notice it.
Celie: You saying it just wanna be loved like it say in the bible?
Shug: Yeah, Celie. Everything wanna be loved. Us sing and dance, and holla just wanting to be loved. Look at them trees. Notice how the trees do everything people do to get attention... except walk?
