God hates complaining. Numbers,11:1-35 Food and clothing is all we're to ask
for or demand, in fact – daily bread. 1 Timothy,6:8 Just think about man in
the last 50,000 years mostly living like Native Americans and how God must see
us. You need food, clothing and entertainment, money is to get those. Man does
not live on bread alone. Luke,4:4, Amos,8:11-12
God's favorite animals are bears and elephants. They are funny shaped – I
think God must have seen too much starvation over the years. If the purpose of
life is to know and love God, then a priest's job is to make everybody know and
love God. By saying God likes bears and elephants, I did more toward that end
than all priests in history. Hosea,6:6 "It is love that I desire, not
sacrifice; knowledge of God, not holocaust." As a former Catholic, that blew my
mind. I actually thought love was sacrifice! I was so dumb-founded reading,
"it is love that I desire, not sacrifice," that I actually looked-up the word,
"love". It means to take delight in. I realized it is demonic pride if you
think love means hurting yourself for others. In the Philippians, they got the
notion crucifying yourself was a good idea. Similarly, a child thinking about
Lent, might conclude, "if it's bad, it must be good." That is, if you think God
wants you to hurt yourself to please Him, you are worshiping a demon, not God!
God wants you to take delight in His company, get to know Him and praise Him.
It is best to separate justice – sin and punishment – from relationship with
God. Never ask God to change justice into injustice by not punishing. God said
to me in an oracle, "Excessive contrician wearisome." He doesn't want to hear
confessions. When you pray, be witty and charming and rarely earnest. Enjoy
God's company without imposing on Him and don't expect secrets of the Universe. Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
