God is not Dead

Sickness and tragedy

are not punishment

but facts of life

viruses attack

wars kill 

tumours grow

leukemia strikes

blood vessels clog up, burst

the innocent are killed by

drugged and drunk drivers

psychotic people act out dreams

that only make sense to them

in a parallel reality

alcohol distorts

ends in abuse

children are killed

by playing with guns

drown in pools, rivers

these are but facts of existance

there is no theistic God

directing these processes

of cause and effect

whom we can call

 

don't misunderstand

God is very real

but different

to the traditional

belief of old.

    I totally agree. He shows all the tokens of his present that we feel every moment.

    Write on, well done, Uwe. I agree about the theistic definitions and interpretation of God. There is a very real collective sum of all parts which transcends the traditions and doctrines of religiousity.
