Can you honestly answer these questions: 1. How did you become aware of your God? Childhood Indoc? 2. How did you become aware of your God's expectations and rules? Ancient book? 3. How did you decide that God is perfect? An assumption that the vast knowledge required to create all things as we know it equates to perfection? Is perfection contrary to expecting to be worshiped? 4. How did you decide God is omnipotent? If a being is really really powerful, do you have the perspective to judge the limits of it's power? Can power be so vast that it's possible God exists in a hierarchy of powerful beings of which we no nothing? 5. How did you decide you owe God your allegiance? Is it because God created you, God's power to destroy you or thoroughly mess up your spiritual life? 6. How did you decide that God demands obedience and especially worship? How do you know God wants to be worshiped? That is what church says as they collect your donations? 6. How did you decide you don't have the right to question God? You might as well ask, how did you decide that mutual respect is important in every relationship you have except the relationship you have with God that relegates you to a slave with no rights to a contrary opinion? It's God's way or the highway. My answers: 1. I'm not sure of a divine being who calls himself God. 2. I was taught as a child from the Bible. 3. I have no idea if God is perfect. First I have to decide if God exists, what God is and wants. 4. I don't know if God deserves my allegiance. 5. I have no idea why a all powerful and wise God would expect his children to grovel at his feet. 6. There is no exception for God. If the relationship is not mutually beneficial and respectful it's not a relationship worth having.
