god does not love you
Let’s assume, for a moment, that there is a God. We may not know the nature of God, or
which religion comes closest to the truth, but we can be sure of one thing:
God does not love you.
Look at all the cruelty and misery in the world, which God does nothing to stop. Right now,
as you are reading this, there are children in various places around the world being raped
and tortured. Most of us would risk our lives, give up our lives, to save them if we could.
God stands by and does nothing. God has abandoned these children, and clearly does not
love them. God does not love you, either.
There are some religions which claim that “God’s love is a different kind of love”, which is
supposed to explain and justify what appears to be God’s divine indifference. This is total
bullshit. If I claim that I love my neighbor, and then set his house on fire and shoot him in
the head, anyone can see that my “love” is not love at all.
Another fallacy along these lines is the statement that, “God doesn’t give us more than we
can handle in life”. This is a ridiculous statement. Go to a mental institution, go to the ward
for those who are seriously disturbed, and you’ll see people who just sit and rock back and
forth all day, staring off into space, or screaming at nonexistant terrors. God has given
them more than they could handle, and now they’re totally broken.
So you have no loving God watching over you, making sure you get what you need. You
don’t get what you need in life, you don’t get what you want, you don’t get what you
deserve. You get what you get.
