Message from God: book 1/136
Yet the thinking mind begs to ask: if God has a way She wants me to be, why didn’t She simply create me that way to begin with? Why all this struggle for me to “overcome” who I am in order for me to become what God wants me to be? This the probing mind demands to know, and rightly so, for it is a proper inquiry.
The religionists would have you believe that I created you as less than Who I Am so that you could have the chance to become as Who I Am, working against all odds, and, I might add, against every natural tendency I am supposed to have given you.
Among these so-called natural tendencies is the tendency to sin. You are taught that you were born in sin, that you will die in sin, and that to sin is your nature.
One of your religions even teaches you that you can do nothing about this. Your own actions are irrelevant and meaningless. It is arrogant to think that by some action of yours you can “get to heaven.” There is only one way to heaven (salvation) and that is through no undertaking of your own, but through the grace granted you by God through acceptance of His Son as your intermediary.
Once this is done you are “saved.” Until it is done, nothing that you do, not the life you live, not the choices you make, not anything you undertake of your own will in an effort to improve yourself or render you worthy, has any effect, bears any influence. You are incapable of rendering yourself worthy, because you are inherently unworthy. You were created that way.
Why? God only knows. Perhaps He made a mistake. Perhaps He didn’t get it right. Maybe He wishes He could have it all to do over again. But there it is. What to do…
You are making mock of Me. You are saying that I, God, made inherently imperfect beings, then have demanded of them to be perfect, or face damnation.
You are saying then that, somewhere several thousand years into the world’s experience, I relented, saying that from then on you didn’t necessarily have to be good, and accept as your savior the One Being who could always be perfect, thus satisfying My hunger for perfection. You are saying that My Son, who you call the One Perfect One, has saved you from your own imperfection, the imperfection I gave you.
In other words, God’s Son has saved you from what His Father did.
This is how you, many of you, say I’ve set it up.
Now who is mocking whom?
