He loves me!

Wayne Jacobsen: "Incredible few belivers live each day as if the God of the universe has great affection for them. Why? Because two thousand years of religions tradition have inoculated in us the mistake notion that God`s love is something we earn. If we do what pleases him, he loves us, if not, he doesen`t."

Bucuria de a trai este o caracteristica a crestinismului. Marcel Jouhandeau "Faptul ca viata-i o sarbatoare i-a scandalizat pe unii. Daca au ales sa fie nefericiti, treaba lor... Desi am parte de toate grijile, toate necazurile, toate dezamagirile, nimeni nu afla nimic, nici macar eu."

In timpul unui banchet la care era invitat, cineva i-a spus lui Antistene:
- De ce nu ne canti ceva?
La care acesta a replicat:
- Dar tu de ce nu ma acompaniezi din flaut?

Do you really love God?

No one ever threatened to do something that was wonderful. My parents didn`t threaten me with punishment to get me to go to Disneyland. But to make me go to the dentist or work on the vineyard, that was another matter.
So if I am told that I must love God or he will throw me into hell, I might well consider loving him - or at least pretend I do. But if the only reason I`m even responding to him is to serve my own self-interest and escape a fiery eternity in hell, am I really loving him or myself?
