“And what’s strange, what’s marvelous, is that God should really exist; the marvel is that such an idea, the idea of the necessity of God, could enter the head of such a savage, vicious beast as man,” Fyodor Dostoevsky.
Most likely it’s not the first time that such a notion has stretched humanities thinking cords. At times this writer wonders, if the god’s toy with man, as their play things. And whether, or not Satan is their ambassador. Creating unending havoc among earth’s inhabitants.
Even among those, who claim to have heard His voice. So they run off and create an ism. And rebuke all, and everyone, who claims to have heard God’s voice also, and have concocted an ism different from there’s.
Each saying that the others ism’s are the creation of their father the devil. Which is an argument Jesus used against the legal and religious authorities, who opposed His ism. Note: “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do, He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” (cp, John 8:44).
And so the question, what is truth? Because it very evident that humanity represents various stages of vicious savagery, even among those, who identify with that first century radical Jesus.
And so, each must reconcile those oddities with their own perceived ism. For this writer it is as follows, “Remember the former things of old. For I am God, and there is no other. I am God, and there is none like me. Declaring the end from the beginning. And from ancient times things not yet come. Saying, ‘My council shall stand, I will do all My purposes.'” (cp. Isaiah 46:9-10).
