I'll preface by saying that this letter/personal venting comes from an Evangelical background and influence specific to the teachings of a few pastors/teachers in Oklahoma. But I still love you, OK. Boomer Sooner! Also, I'm having to write this from my iPhone, cause my laptop was lost and destroyed. Go figure, right?
Dear God...um I mean Evangical Christian God?
Im speaking on behalf of my mother, who is your most devout and faithful follower. Some serious crap has been going down in her life and I see she's hitting a breaking point. So it's prompt me to express a few feelings about you; which you'll recall from our last argument. Forgive me if I seem a bit scattered, but I'm not really happy with you right now.
Yes, I know your arch nemesis, Satan is running around deceiving and destroying crap, but that doesn't excuse the fact that you brought us here and you set this whole drama into motion at the beginning. For the life of me, I don't understand why you didn't just lock up Satan in some eternal prison cell or time out after your fight with him in heaven. Instead, you tossed him out into the universe and then allowed him into the world you created for us. So when one of us gets tricked into handing over our power to him, we get kicked out into a chaotic world with Satan and his forces. Then you make us choose between you or him as a master. You or eternal damnation?! WTF? Those are our only options?? Free will with a gun to our heads?? We had nothing to do with you and satan's beef! Why are those the only choices??
How can you claim to have all this power but seem to either be picky about using it to help or just limited. And we if allegedly have the power in us, then why do we need to pray to you for anything? What exactly are we worshiping you for? Life that can be taken away from us at any moment regardless of our will?
Look, I get it. You wanted to experiment with new creations, but you forgot the disgruntled employee hanging out in the factory and things got out of control. So you tried recovering, rebooting, and running damage control. It's a long process, much like fixing our US economic crisis. But if this is actually all part of your master plan/will from the very beginning and you've actively sought out this selfish scenario, then I'm gonna have to say, screw you; which I guess means eternal damnation for me. But hey, you're God and can do whatever you want anyway. Anywhoo, I hope you resolve your issues with Satan someday and get on with your lives in the universe; just keep us from being collateral damage, please.
Until next time, peace out!
