Just Between You And Me

Posted by: Andee / Category: , , ,

Let's pretend there is a God up there... (I am not saying there is, I am not saying there isn't).

This God is a loving, caring, compassionate creator. He has the ability to not only watch every move you make, but every move everyone else makes as you go about your life on Earth. He knows your heart, your mind, your dreams, your secrets. He knows about the Snickers bar you stole from the gas station when you were 8, the time you "accidentally" kicked your little brother in the shin when you were playing soccer and the time you cheated on your math test (sorry).

This God loves you anyway.

Does this God need an organization of any kind to facilitate a relationship between the two of you? In order to go to heaven and be with this loving God again, is it truly necessary that I go to another human being that also has faults and secrets and confess mine? What makes this other human better than me? The fact that the human being happens to be a man and not a woman? Why must I confess anything to a human being when I could just say a prayer and talk directly to God, Himself?

Oh sure, many assume it just doesn't work this way. And to those people, I ask, "Why not?"

Why do so many people assume there has to be a go-between?

I don't have a whole lot of "sins." Really. I was a good kid, and I did normal kid stuff. I don't sleep around with random men, I don't steal money from work, and I treat people the way I want to be treated. If I ever have anything I need to confess to God about, I think I will just talk to him about it.

    Could not agree more. Nice update to the site, by the way. I like what you have done with the place.

    Thank you Mighty Thunder Chicken! I wonder about this from time to time. I don't really understand why religion in necessary if a God exists.

    Religion is all about control. I can be a good person without religion, I can be a good person without the constant threat of people in a religion. It's somewhat pointless to me... I wish I had learned that sooner.

    I am really glad you like the update. :)

    I always considered it a formalized acknowledgment that we live on the planet with other people and our own salvation has to do with them and not just ourselves.
