I heard it from my brother’s cousin’s aunt’s third nephew’s girlfriend’s stylist’s bartender

Who told you God was God?

God himself or someone who claims they are speaking for God?

I feel it is very important to think about the sources used in telling us who God, Jesus Christ, and Muhammad are since we are getting all of this second-hand, in our case second-, second-, second-,…second-hand.  Look at what was happening in the Catholic Church for decades.  Priests who committed sins in the eyes of the Lord were telling people what they should do and not do.  These congregations were fed biblical interpretations by men who interpreted their misconduct as okay.  Blindly following other people’s interpretations of God, including the bible, is a sin in my mind.  Remember, all of the Gospels were written long after the deaths of the people they are attributed to and were even canonized centuries later than that.  Think about all the people who are lead astray by cults that purposefully twist the teaching of the Bible.  In the end, humans are the ones expressing God’s words, but aren’t all humans considered to have fallen from God’s grace?  Do we not all twist the words of God in some way as we twist the gossip we hear from each other?  Think about it.

  1. With apologies to Jack the Lad, I decided not to approve his post on Muhammad. Not because I would not deem it informative, but that it was not germane to this post. I did not write this as a desire for information on any of the religious figures I mentioned but as a cautionary thought about questioning those who tell you about God and any hidden agendas they may have.
