^I like that one. What would
a God who is Love do with an infinite supply of itself?
-Why share it of course!
I started out with just one or two but alas, I get one novel idea and it turns into a nov...el. (I’m Outa’ Control! -Regis).
-#5 the abolition of the question.
-#11 Having to go to the bathroom. Or better, the elimination of elimination...
Edit -I forgot, if I was God I'd have access to all the parallel realities where that was already the case...Never mind
This was my favorite one though:
#3 Can God make a stone too heavy for him to lift?
Wrong question, right direction, but then you knew that didn’t you?
It wouldn’t occur to God to create bigger than itself, Love/God is all there is. Technically the idea itself should be impossible (#6, yes, at least the illusion of “other than God" or imperfection is required to perceive its opposite). but, somehow, somewhere, some part of God discovered the concept of impossible. -We’ll call that concept, the concept of NOTHING
The concept of nothing IS
-that-rock. If nothing is the opposite of everything (or anything), then everything has no opposite. Since the state of nothingness is impossible, then so too is the concept of it. The concept of nothing is an illusion.
All of physical creation is built on this impossible idea.
Few of us stop to contemplate the absurdity of the notion, yet every aspect of our thoughts and experience regarding physical creation rests on this fundamental assumption (Need, lack, absence, future, unknown, etc.).
The rock ‘to big to lift’ is the impossible notion that we could ever forget our eternal oneness with God who is completely
Love and always only Good.
-Understanding ourselves in relation to God is
our understanding of good and
evil, or the ‘forbidden’ fruit. The “fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” something totally unknown in God’s reality of only
Heaven, and therefore novel special and unique. So #1, apparently it was “bait,” at least for me cuz here “I am” pontificating on the “Great I Am.”
No matter what our, or even God’s conception of God is, it will only EVER
be smack dab in the middle of One Love that’s eternally exponentially increasing in intensity.
To the extent that God is increasing, so too is God’s understanding of even itself/Himself. #8
Once you understand it like that, the nature
of the question becomes the question. God didn’t create a rock too big to lift, ‘He’ created a “reality” where such a notion is possible..
