04:46 - The Omnipotent

What if It which we call Father, or Mother is but a stranger, who
has not the time nor concern to care for Its scattered offspring?
What if
the mind behind intelligent design is not capable of understanding righteousness
and consequence?
This God to which we have prayed,
on which we have
always depended for protection and guidance,
may not be the fair, loving,
and all-knowing being with a plan that we have so far envisioned It to be,
but more like a child in a sandbox, building and smashing castles, giving
and taking away, simply because It can.
Yes, there is a complex system in
place. It is apparent all around us. Something, someone started it all off and
has been tweaking it all along. I do believe in a supreme power...Something far
bigger than anything I, with my tiny and hopelessly mortal mind could ever
understand...but I do not believe It in possession of a conscience. Yes, the
Lord does work in mysterious ways, however I believe "playing" is a better word
for Its engagement.
I suggest you keep praying to It if it makes you feel
better. Maybe It is listening. Maybe It will respond. Maybe It will laugh at
your nerve. I however will not waste my time speaking to It, or listening to Its
misguided messengers.
I have my own life, and my own plans, and regardless
of what It throws at me, and how hard It presses down on me with Its wicked
finger, I will always press back, until I am dead. Then, I suppose I will have
no choice but to pay attention to It.

  1. Thanks for this one, Dave. Can you please email me via Wake Up America where you posted? Spree has my email addy. Thank you.

    You can also find me on my site (link in my comment on that post in WUA.)

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
