Just who has Dominion on earth anyway?


Some ay that Satan rules the earth. Some say God.


I say man.


Dominion, is exercised by those who can enforce laws.


As I look around I see only man making enforceable laws.


Does that mean that both God and Satan have relinquished Dominion over man?


If that is the case then why do most Christians and others, wait for God to return to claim Dominion when He has clearly given it to man and has therefore given up the right to punish?


Do you follow the laws of man or the laws of God.


Is law without enforcement just no law at all?


Some tell me that God first had it then gave it to man who lost it then took it back and gave it to Satan and around it goes.


Who's got Dominion?

God is.


Humankind almost is.


Satan is not.


What is, is Dominion.


What almost is, is smoke and mirrors.


What is not, is not and never will be.

God is then responsible for the condition of the world?


Do you like what he has built?

You have a very humanized view of what God is, so I'm not sure if I could possibly explain it any better than that.  Sorry.

I understand that it is hard to find convincing words when your belief systems consists of imaginary entities angels and demons of all kinds, talking snakes and seven headed monsters. Childish notions.


If you ever grow up and want to chat with adults, come back.

The only talking snakes I've ever seen, have two legs. Same goes for the monsters. I think you've mistaken me for someone else.

It is cruel on all children when they learn that there is no real Santa.


Just as hard for Christian children to put away their childish imaginary entities.


 


Adults should be able to take it. If not then they were not adult to begin with.


 


All Fundamentals hurt their parent religions and as a Religionist I can be honest with those who offend true believers by promoting the impossible and untrue.

If so, I apologize.


Your mention of Satan as an entity must have thrown me off.


I take it then that your God is not the Jesus/God that  used genocide on our ancestors with Noah's flood?

That's okay.


When I used the word Satan, it was in relation to your specific question. Satan, the humanoid figure, is a representative---a symbol used in people's perception of things they cannot understand.


The same goes for God. Man creates God in his own image, because that's what he can most easily understand. God is not a fabrication but man-god is.


Jesus was a man who attained Oneness with God. If he was here today, a lot of Christians would really hate him. Traditional Christianity worships, for the most part, an idol designed by the Romans for politcal purposes. However, I do think the real Jesus squeezes through here and there.
