THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT
Again may I remind you this is only "MY" belief and I'm not trying to convince you of anything. I know that most of the folks I know believe fervently that there is an entity we call Satan or the Devil or a host of other names. And most of my friends and even family disagree with my philosophy concerning this subject and I must admit it probably would be easier for me to say I believe in the Devil but I choose to live and keep my spiritual beliefs true to myself.As I understand things from church and the Bible Satan was once an ArchAngel who worshipped God but the time came when this archangel decided he could do a better job with God's creation of all of us here on earth so he led a rebellion against God and was thrown out of Heaven of to this day spends his time trying his absolute best to lead all of us humans down a path of destruction. He does this by enticing us to "sin" against God by offering things to us that please our egos and our bodily desires.And he is ever so crafty by making things look so good to us "fallible" and "sinful" personalities. Now I have a question.If God is an All Knowing and All Seeing being He would have surely known that his archangel that He Himself created would one day fall into sin and rebel and would make this world a living hell for His loved creations of human beings. This being so tehn why would He go ahead and giv e this entity a birth in the first place?Now I know cause Ive heard this from many religionist that God did indeed know beforehand how things would be but that He giv es us a choice in everything so He went ahead and allowed things to transpire as they are today. Well. I just ain't buying that! It makes no sense at all to me why aLoving Father figure as God would create anything that would make our lives Harder.If this God loves us more than say our own earthly fathers Im sure He would not have createsd a devil in the first place. But way back our forefathers tried to figure out things like how we got here and what it all means. Being unable to find an explanation for the infinite with a finite mind they then just came up with all sorts of Gods and all sorts of evil influences along the way to explain people's reasons for the way they acted.Back then if a person had an epileptic seizure folks were unaware that it was a disease and automatically attributed it to the person being possessed by demons. That was probably the only thing that made sense to them at the time.Anything early humans could not explain was thought to be either God or Gods doings or also doings by evil deities sucha s the devil.And today many of these early misguided beliefs still are taught as truth to many of us.I know my belief may cause you to label me as crazy or as an atheist or whatever else you may decide. And you know what? That's really ok with me. Cause you see my personal belief system doesn't have to meet anyone's standards other than mine.And again this is "MY TRUTH" not yours. Yours may be the same they may totally different or somewhere in between. I put my beliefs out here just for the sake of making someone think a little bit.If you are content living in a world where there are demons and devils tugging at your hem thats fine by me. For me I had rather believe that any evil that resides in this world comes from a misuse of Spirit's Law which is exact yesterday, today and tomorrow.And if by chance I do an evil deed I only hope I am big enough to take responsibility for it and try to correct it and not let it happen again. I guess I have to take responsibility since in my world at least there is no "Devil" to blame it on. So there are my beliefs hope I haven't offended anyone who believes differently. I sincerely hope and pray all of you have a safe happy and fun filled 4th of July. God bless!
