I was talking to an acquaintance. She’s in her mid 70’s. Somehow the discussion of prayer came up; we’ve got a mutual friend who has cancer. But, she wasn’t sure what my religion was. So, I told her.
She was incensed! She was upset!! How could I offer to pray for someone? Then, of course, the prosetilization began.
I told her, to cut her off, that all Gods are the same God. After all, there’s only One God that we view how we wish, and worship how we wish. That’s why there are so many religions and why the people within each religion and sect of a religion can’t agree on anything except One God.
I told her that I viewed my God as a Woman.
She was sputtering by this time.
So, I said good night and hung up the phone. It’s a real shame. How can she begin to think that her God is better than my God if there is only One God? Does she actually believe that there is more than One God while stating that there is only One God?
So, the next thought is: Does she believe that I worship the Devil? Or that the Devil is a God and that’s who I worship? Well, the Devil is an adversary of God. Was the Devil created BEFORE Adam and Eve, after all, if he wasn’t then how could he have been in the Garden of Eden?
But, is he equal to God? Is he a complete and different entity or a facet of the One God? And, how come God just doesn’t get rid of him and allow us to live in “His Light”. If everything is supposed to be in balance, then God, fufilling this balance CAN’T be all good. He has to be good AND evil. Therefore it would follow that the Devil is an aspect of God. Therefore, there is only God with many aspects. Can’t I then, therefore, worship Her as I see fit? Is this possible?
