I stopped reading after “you are pretty” and my response is thank you.
I’ve spoken to a lot of people who think of God that way. And I guess I don’t understand how people like my friend can still hurt me even though I’ve talked to many others who agree. See, I think God was all the gods humanity dreamt up. I think all the religions that have ever existed are talking about one God, but we focused on specific aspects of him and that’s why there are so many different kinds and types of religion. I think people need Him to be angry and just or whatever bc they want to feel that bad people will be punished. So that they will feel validated for doing good things. But my best friend thinks that way, that we are sinners and I wouldn’t normally care bc she’s still my friend and she’s entitled to her opinion but our friendship is disappearing right before my eyes and I can’t handle it. How can her God be so loving when she says things like that to people like me? I think we all have the same God and we choose to focus on specific parts of Him. But why don’t people focus on His love and kindness and compassion? Why do they focus on the fact that we disappoint Him, that we are imperfect? Does it mean nothing that we don’t want this, that we try to fight it? Why do we give Him human emotions like anger and frustration and cruelty when He is the most loving being to ever grace our presence? I don’t want to keep Him a secret. I don’t think any of us can. When we tell someone we love them, we are sharing Him. When we do good things for people, we are sharing Him. When we are moved to tears, we are with Him. When we do things we love like read and write and watch tv, we are with Him. And I love that.
- A message from a wonderful person I met on Tumblr. You know who you are. I know you asked me to keep your messages as a secret but I think that this, your words, your understanding, shouldn’t be one of those things people hide. People should know, and this is a lovely message, I couldn’t believe you managed to adore my words and my writings when we both know that you are far more brilliant.
