There Is No God
Some people ask me why I don't believe in God.
And when they ask me, I always say the same thing.
I say, " If God were here, if God was ever-present, then people wouldn't suffer, for the perfect world,
A life they will never see.
If God cared about us, and the things we do,
Then some people wouldn't have to wander the streets always looking behind their backs,
Just to make sure that someone isn't about to attack.
If God cared about us, His so-called children,
Then there wouldn't be any child abuse,
There wouldn't be any murders,
There wouldn't be any cutters,
There wouldn't be any disorders."
Once I'm through, the people just stop and stare.
But there is always that one brave soul that dares to argue back.
" God put us on this earth as a test,
A test to see if we are good enough for Heaven," they say.
And I tell them, " If God knows what we are going to do with our lives,
If He already knows when we are going to get into trouble,
Then there is no need to test us. The so-called Bible tells not to judge or to pick favorites.
God is disobeying His own rules,
For choosing who goes to Heaven and who doesn't is just like saying,
'I don't like you because you cursed, so I'm going to ignore you,
But I like you because you are pretty and nice.'
So if you don't want to accept my thoughts and opinions,
Then you are judging me.
God said that whoever judges will go to Hell.
I accept the fact that you don't like how I feel about your so-called God,
But that's not going to change any of my feelings.
I respect your thoughts and your opinions.
I am not judging you,
I hope that you can see and respect that."
When I'm through, some people stand and stare, respecting my thoughts.
Others stand there, furious, trying to find words that they hope will make me believe.
But before anyone can say anything,
I stand up, say goodbye, and walk away.
