Trusting in God Scale

There is a scale that easily measures your ability to trust in God.

For the atheists among us feel free to substitute whatever you like for the word God because whether you like it or not does not change the fact that you did not create yourself and therefore are not responsible for the end result of that creation.

It is a question of authority and the root word of authority is obviously author. So who or what is your author?

You? Your parents? Your government?

You? This one is self-evident. While you can claim some credit or blame for what happens after birth and before death, the process before the former or after the later are clearly not of your making.

Your parents? Tis true their bodies made your body.

“Child?”

Your government? Doing their best to define you. Have been for years.

“Subject?”

“Citizen?”

But who are you really?

There are only two choices. Either you are one of the above as in a child, subject or citizen or you are something else.

And what could that something else be?

A collection of chemicals and their electrical interconnections?

A spirit created by whom? Or is it Who?

The beauty of it all is this. It really does not matter what your choice or belief is.

You did not create yourself and the end result of that creation is not up to you.

So what’s the scale?

Your trust in government is inversely proportional to your trust in God.

The more you have in one means the less you have in the other.

Why is this true?

Because government and God are polar opposites.

Government is force.

God is peace.
