Replies to Idolators:
As we saw earlier, idol worshiping is not favored by most of the religions. After all they are condemning it. But wherever you go, you see people worshiping created things (idols) as if they are worshiping the GOD.

The most common excuse they have is, “It’s hard to worship the unseen God.

“So, this allows you to worship something other than God?”
“Why is it hard for you when it is not hard for ‘billions’ of people?”

Another thing they say is, “God is present everywhere. Everything is God. We worship God through His creations”.

“Whoa! Worshipping God through His creations? Why do you need this ‘through’? It doesn’t seem logical?
Why can’t you worship God directly?
And again as I have said earlier in the post ‘Is Everything God?’ we can conclude “Everything is God’s” and everything is NOT God.

Anyways, worshiping the Creations doesn’t mean you worship the Creator. It simply means, ‘You worship the Creations‘!”. [And you know that’s wrong]

Again they say, “No no, it’s not the stone we worship. Its God present inside the stone”.

“This is another version of the previous question. God can never be inside a stone which is one of His creations”

“You see, we don’t worship all stones, only special kind of stones. Also gold, silver, brass”.

“You are in a very dangerous position you know. You are more special than a gold or a silver or a brass, aren’t you? So we worship YOU?

What is the authenticity of your practices? If we read your scriptures we find exactly the opposite. So where do you get these things from? From some stupid man or from God?”

“Ok fine, idol worship has no basis in our religion, its wrong. But.. common people can’t worship God without an image. It helps to focus our concentration. When we get trained we don’t need that image. Like in school, in 1st grade you have an idol but when you finish your final grade you don’t need an idol”.

“That’s good atleast you realize its wrong.

Just because a layman cannot worship God without an image, is it ok for him to worship something other than God?

To focus our concentration, there are numerous things we can do, but an idol can never help you. Infact it leads to destruction.

      How many people know what they are worshipping is not God?
      How many people know they have been cheated n cheated for centuries saying that this is their God?

And coming back to the school :D,
    You will not teach your child something wrong in 1st grade and then say he will be corrected later. Would you teach him 2+2=3 in 1st grade and then say its 4 in his final class? Ofcourse not!  

      Then why would you do this to God, the very most important thing in life?
How many people really reach that final stage?
They die in that evil state worshipping a stone, believing it to be the God for all their life. Its sorrowful.”

{Idol worship, the nearest analogy I can provide you is like calling someone else as one’s father, while his real father is another person. Rejection of one’s father and attributing this very honorable position to another person is a very disgraceful, abominable and disgusting thing any human being will think of doing.

The only one true God is the Creator, Sustainer, Cherisher and Provider. It is He only deserves our worship.

If we make idols of human beings, animals and other created objects, for the purpose of worship, my simple question is, do we earn the Blessings or the Wrath of God?

This is the unpardonable sin any human being can commit. The seriousness of this sin will not equal the analogy provided above.} [1]

Lets get rid of such sins, stop0think!

Can God instill ‘Fear’?

2 Apr

 

 

Can God instill fear?

         I got a response from one of the readers regarding the picture in my post ‘Are You A ‘Diest’?’

        The response was, “God should not instill fear. He should be a loving God.”

 

 Thank you for your response my Reader!

Your comments make me go better n better!

 

First of all, a God should not be deprived of anything. He should have every quality.

 

If He is just showing love, He is lacking an attribute of anger.

If He is just an angry God, He will not be a God anymore.

 

So He should instill both fear and love.

In addition He should instill hope too.

 

Fear because if you do mistakes, God will punish you.

Hope because if you repent to Him, God will forgive you.

Love because if He forgives you, He will reward you too, if He wills it.

 

Quote by Ibn al-Qayyim: “The heart is like a bird: love at its head and its two wings are hope and fear.”

There should be a right balance between them.

 

We should fear our Lord my reader! We should fear that we will be punished if we do bad deeds. We should fear the Hell fire. Otherwise you do whatever you want and all bad deeds and no fear and you are gone…

 

This is not an unnatural thing my reader! You yourself want God to be angry with the one who killed innocent people. Don’t you?

 

You want God to punish the man who did something evil to your loved ones. Don’t you?

 

This is from our inner soul, we need God to show love and at times we need Him to be angry too.. (ofcourse not with us..lol)

 

But don’t worry; God’s love is muchhh moreee than His anger.

 

Our God says: “My mercy precedes My wrath”. [famous hadith Qudsi]

So we need Him to instill fear, hope and love.

Note:

Just because I say, “God should instill fear too”..that doesnt mean that He is not a loving God anymore.

Ofcourse He is a loving God, He loves His creations, He loves to forgive His creations.

What you are saying is, “A loving God should not instill fear.”

What I am saying is, “A loving God should not be deprived of anything. He instills fear too!”

 

Think you will get what I mean!

Stop0think!
