“We live in a world where people kill each other every day over whose definition of God is correct” -Darn Brown
For you to have opened an account with here you should know the definition of knowledge, so I will go straight to the point. But before I do that let me bring this to your attention.
Do you think it is wise to question God?
I know most of you will say no, but asking questions and answering them is the essence of knowledge. The bible made it clear that knowledge came as a result of disobedience to God. So logically speaking, when you disobey God you gain knowledge, when you obey him you don’t. Taking this into account I could deduce two possibilities, either he did not want us to gain knowledge or being an all knowing God he wants us to. But if he wants us to, why would the bible place it in such a bad light, why would it place ignorance above knowledge. One thing is certain, in other to know who we are, why we exist and where we are going we need knowledge, trying to deny us that opportunity will be an injustice to mankind. Having knowledge of your surrounding contributes a lot to how you treat them.
Peace, peace, peace, they preach, why would we want peace the answer is simple they say, “God is a peaceful God and that it is inherent in man to want peace” and yet there was war in heaven, what a confusion. All this makes me question the inception of religion. My assertion is that, everything religion stands for and brings is conflict, because only when there is conflict are we able to know that something like God exists and this confirms the existence of one powerful political being who does not want you knowledgeable, thereby subjecting you to his/her total control. In the bible the ignorant ones, normally Israelites and Persians, are always used to wipe out the sophisticated Babylonians and Egyptians and it still continues today. In most developed countries the adoption of secularism has reduced conflict drastically to its minimal level, to be able to achieve that they try to gain knowledge by blotting out religion. Having knowledge of what we are and why we exist is a void religion can never fill that is why this country is filled with two faced religious practitioners.
When confronted with this question: WHAT AM I? The first thing that comes to mind is, “I am a human being“. But that is not the case as we all are human beings. No matter how close we may look alike, we are different from each other which confirm that there is a purpose for you being created. Knowing that purpose, places you in a better position to understand how to deal with others. If we are the creator’s image then I safely presume that if we are to know that purpose, we have to understand who and what God is and believe me nobody does. His premonition might be the non existence of the gap between him and his subjects if we do. In this world all we care about is money and power. Those who become enlightened sooner take advantage of those still left in the dark in every perspective. If the creator is fair and just as we are being told everyday then he should be able to understand that asking questions is not meant to be a challenge to his personality but a quest we had to take in other to understand our personality. Why should my fellow human being tell me it is unwise to ask questions about God? We are only being led astray by those who claim to know God which I confidently put it to them that they don’t. To me it is the worst sin a person can commit.
Why is religion not one body? The moment you start pondering on this question you will begin to doubt if it was ever intended for the peaceful coexistence of mankind. I am not saying this to make you have doubt about your believe but encouraging people to seek knowledge outside the umbrella of religion only then will you be able see the world as it was meant to be.
