Divine life is born among us

Christmas can be a special time for many people, whether they are religious, or not. Families come together and share food and gifts and there is a widespread sense of celebration.

Who is your God?

What you believe your God commands you to do and who that God is are not easily separated. If you believe that you are commanded by your God, or the Prophet who represents that God to you, to plant a bomb and kill people who are your opponents, then you worship a God who would do that. This God hates those who apparently don’t bow down to him and isn’t worried if some innocent people, who happen to be around when the bomb goes off, are killed. This God believes that, if it is a suicide bombing, it is good that you who planted the bomb, die too. In other words, if this God were a person, no price would be too high to pay to force people to do what he/she wanted. I must say, I would find it hard to recommend this God to anyone.
