Inventing God

June 30, 2011 1 comment

Recently I posted the following to Twitter:

Is the tension in earning salvation vs receiving it bourne from desire 2 invent a god based on how we feel? Is God a manifestation of piety?

I didn’t receive any feedback on that question… probably because I forgot to mention what I was eating or some menial task that I was carrying out at the time.

So for any of the astute readers who may still wander by here from time to time even though I haven’t been around for quite some time, here is your opportunity to astound future readers with your thoughts on my question.

Do we invent God from a sense of our own piety?  Do we believe He exists when we feel ‘close’ to Him based on how well we are doing in earning His graces through our own religiosity?  Does He cease to exist when we decide to control the ebb and flow of own lives irregardless of what we perceive would please Him?

Does God exist only for the Good Christian?
