Please explain who it is your praying to?

Well I read alot of tweets today with people asking us to pray for the folks in Texas.

It is impossible to know where to start to explain the illogicality of all this, for if it was not so absurd it would be laughable and Welk does not possess that emotion.

It has been centuries now that you have been sending up prayers to a God that apparently isnt listening too well or just does not care.

Perhaps it’s the same God that instructed a nation to kill all it’s first born children. Oh yea but before you do that make sure you paint the doors with sheeps blood. Even today you would be repulsed if one of your leaders made such a suggestion. Certainly you wouldnt be worshiping  him.

Is it the God that burned an entire village to the ground with the people trapped inside? The God that asked a man to slit the throat of his son? The God that allowed beheadings and stonings or let his so called people wander the desert for years. The one that called men to war to slaughter each other on a regular bases?

If you proclaim his wisdom to be great and that he has the future in his hands, isn’t it a bit presumptuous to think that your prayers has any effect on his will?

Paine said it well when he wrote: Man finds fault with everything. His selfishness is never satisfied; his ingratitude is  never at an end. He takes on himself to direct the Almighty what to do,   even in the govemment of the universe. He prays dictatorially. When it is  sunshine, he prays for rain, and when it is rain, he prays for sunshine.  He follows the same idea in everything that he prays for; for what is the  amount of all his prayers, but an attempt to make the Almighty change his mind, and act otherwise than he does? It is as if he were to say—thou knowest not so well as I.
