in response to reader comment: Distinguishing the Justice of Almighty God from human justice

Submitted by G.Vishvas (India), Feb 1, 2010 at 21:39

To Tovey

The asking is always done as per the needs and abilities of the person who asks, and not as per the needs or prescriptions of the person being asked. God has a permanent pre- and post-responsibility in all matters because he is god, irrespective of how the human being has failed or not failed or conducted himself in the past.

Talk about god's justice is irrelevant, even detrimental, in the modern world because it merely causes shirking of responsibility by human beings in positions of authority, responsibility and privileges. Much confusion and manipulation has been done and is being done in the name of god and god has allowed it to happen. Divine help has often failed to come when it should have.

Praising god seems to be some sort of trick to trick god. A god who rewards flatterers is not setting a good example. God misbehaves towards human beings in order to know which human beings are honest and which are flatterers. The god-praisers are a dishonest lot.
