Let’s kill GOD, abandon laws, burn ‘Holy’ Bible? I know just by reading that line, someone is out there thinking Anthea McGibbon has gone mad ravings to kill God and burn the Bible.
Killing God – Is it a matter of rebellion, ignorance or plain culture? Is this new campaign to remove God from the Holy Bible another beginning to the end times? Will the Bible be holy still? What of the principles, laws etc which, for years, have been based on the Bible? What of Jamaica’s National Pledge and National Anthem? Hmmm
Seemingly a great deal of persons spend their time debating and physically going all out to delete words such as ‘GOD’ from the bible without critical thought. That they do so out of pure passion regardless of what they believe is a mild assumption.
It is anyone’s wonder if those who were born in the West ever considered what it would be like to be born in the Eastern World. In fact, how many persons born in the East could ever accept the culture of the West?
There are two main groups of persons who are determined to delete words such ‘GOD’ from human life altogether. The wanna be atheist, and the Muslims. Then there are actual christians who lacking a real relationship with God, owns no testimony so convicting to pass on to the children, unlike other faiths where children are honed into followers.
It is interesting that there are Muslims who accept a belief in God.
Atheism is not accepted by some persons. One local pastor even chants that ‘persons who claim to be atheists usually acknowledge God, and target him to convince others he does not exist.
Then again some would argue that the average atheist deny the existence of God, purely because too many of their questions are left unanswered. In this group homosexuals who’ve now printed The Queen James Bible, divorcees and others who cant accept the denial of their lifestyle. Then this gives rise to new interpretations and imaginations of what the Bible should say.
What then will happen, when some will rise to fight against their way.
But for years the world has turned on its axle, and world law has been based on biblical principles. So now it is anyone’s wonder, whose views and interpretations will reduce the impending chaos.
After all, in a Jamaican school recently a parent enforced her opinion by allowing her children to wear long and loose hairstyles simply because she didnt like the rules nor considered them date appropriate to follow.
So with everyone now realising the value of their opinion, and that weight over accepting that a book was written by an ‘invisible’ God, it is anyones guess how the world will turn in another ten years.
Seems the history of what worked has gone through the door.
Perhaps a campaign for multiple opinions on this topic published here will be appreciated.
