Mum told Me

Mum used to tell me the bible contradicts itself and that's true but is it like a riddle waiting to be solved the bible says God created man in his image so God should look like a man But then it goes on to speak more about God God came down from the heavens to walk on earth as a man In the garden of Eden so was he a man before he came down to the earth or did he change shape to walk on the earth as a man When Moses met him in the desert he was a burning brush and up, on the mountain When Moses went up to talk to God he couldn't look at him without it, killing him, so God appears to be able to change shape and power levels He also appeared at the door of Moses tent in the exodus of Hebrew people as they walked through the desert he appeared as a cloud with fire inside the cloud Moses wrote the first five books of the bible the Torah Perhaps dictated to Moses by God sitting at the door of his tent I wonder, did God simplify the story of creation so Moses could understand after all, Moses knew nothing of the universe could Moses understand the concept of atoms coming together to create a sun Could Moses understand the concept of DNA programming to create a person or did God simply create a story that Moses could understand a story of creation that his mind could comprehend I'm told that I have to believe with blind faith sorry people that's not me I like to question, comprehend and think blind faith has you paying dollars to people that spend it on themselves blind faith allowed Manson to lead a dozen teenagers on a killing spree Blind faith allowed you to become a puppet in the hands of other people I like to read think and study back into history and use your own brain what did the church do in the past what does the bible say they should do thou shalt not kill is pretty simple and pretty clear if your religion is telling you to kill people or pay them money so they can build mansions for themselves God says you can tell my people from the fruit of their trees people that devote their lives to looking after, the sick and the injured devote their lives to helping, not molesting children They are Gods people they can be found as firemen risking their lives to help other's teachers fighting to provide an education all over the world, good people fight to make a better world and selfish people scheme to take your money
