Sasun, u gave me such a big smile!!!! "God's Law" u say????? Maybe u mean Natural Law or the Law of Nature (as u wish), but God, if any, has only COMMANDS!!!! at least that's what they write in THE book
The Law i wrote, is the law that applies to the societies (each has differnet ones). every member of that society IS equal and must benefit from the law as well as be protected by it!
There is a wide gap between our perceptions of God. All natural and spiritual laws are created by God. One should be aware of the laws in order to be in harmony with the universe and so be happy and have a righteous existence. Let's say, the universe is a building with walls, windows, doors, ceilings, etc... everything in it has a purpose. Let's compare this building with a set of laws. God's commandments are instructions on how to live in the right way in this building and be happy. So we are kindly told, for example, not to go against the wall and smash into it but use the doors instead, or else we might injure ourselves. God has given us freedom to follow or to reject His commandments which we might as well call instructions. Well, you might say you are free to do as you wish, then you go against the wall and break your head. Now who is to blame? And who is to blame that one has knowingly taken a path of wrong actions that according to the Commandments lead to trouble. By Commandments I don't mean just 10 commandments in the Bible but a wider and universal moral codes all over the world. So then you are reminded again and again by all spiritual traditions of the world of right and wrong, good and evil, right way of living and wrong way of living. Some choose to listen and some ignore... but the laws of the building are the same and eqully applicable to all. God does not punish or reward anyone, it is us who punish or reward ourselves by our actions.
sorry, but that is the wrongest thing i have ever read in a very long time! i can't disagree more. thanks to all the people that went against the God's commands and challanged EVERYTHING He... should i write "said??" hm... ok, "said", if u believe in what they write in Bible. If noone ever acted against or was always afraid to question Him, we would have still be stuck without knowledge about our universe, technology, our own-self etc. Thanks to all that heros, who, yes indeed, DID suffer "the consequencies" of telling the truth, opening our eyes, calling things their real names... in short acting against what was never to be questioned! i think i owe lots of what i know and who i am to that very brave men and wemen!
well, the principle of my life:"want to blame someone, blame yourself!" besides, how can u blame someone else when you are the one taking the decisions??? how can anyone be so...should i say naive or stupid to blame God????? i never read THE book or pray, like the believers
,when i have any problems, i ALWAYS SOLVE THEM RIGHT AWAY!
AND.... I NEVER DO WHAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD TO!!!
"ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD AND BE DIFFERENT, NEVER DO THINGS LIKE OTHERS HAVE DONE" the secret of my success
and i think i am gonna add "never do what others have always been told to do"
Again there is a gap between our perceptions. Telling the truth, challenging difficulties, heroism, obtaining knowledge and progress are always considered virtues by the world's religious/spritual traditions.... hmm.. except for dark periods of some of the religions. It would be unfair to judge God for the actions of people who have not exactly followed the commandments.
