Virtual Secularists (Updated)

Our article Why Does God Sometimes Do Insane Things? describes a virtual secularist.

We are not virtual secularists.

Why Does God Sometimes Do Insane Things?

In order to understand this article, you need to understand the concepts of life hallucination and paradoxical drama. See our other articles on these subjects but mainly our article Why Is God Somewhat Stingy?

Now, first, God does not sometimes do insane things. That being said, we, paradoxically, ask, “Why does God sometimes do insane things?” The answer is:

God wants us to act as if (not really)…to act as if he is insane. So, how would you act if God were insane? You would have nothing to do with God in your outward expression. You would appear to others to be a secularist, someone who has nothing to do with God or the Bible or religion.

Why Is God Allowing My Sanity To Be Threatened?

God is allowing your sanity to be threatened (a life hallucination [see Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? for an explanation of life hallucination]) so that you will engage in the paradoxical drama (see our other articles on paradoxical drama; especially, Why Is God Somewhat Stingy?)…so that you will engage in the paradoxical drama of seeking something other than God to maintain your sanity.

Why Is God Unfaithful (Inconsistent)?

Why is God unfaithful (inconsistent)? That is, why doesn’t God keep his word all of the time? Well, once again, we are dealing with paradoxical drama. You must read our earlier articles on this subject to be able to understand this article:

Note that God is not really unfaithful.

Now, why is God unfaithful?

So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of putting material defenses above trusting God. Note that we did not say so that we do not trust God but rather that material defenses are to be given greater priority than faith in God.

Material defenses are money, food, clothing, shelter, guns, police, military, etc., etc.

Note that the logic behind this paradoxical drama is that, while unfaithfulness, per se (in itself), calls for a cessation of trust in God…since God is the only source of supply, we cannot cut ourselves off from him completely. Therefore, rather than cessation of faith in God, logic dictates a synthesis, subordination of faith in God.

Why Does God Sometimes Send Unbearable Torment?

You must read Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? first to be able to understand this article; especially, the concept of pardoxical drama. You may also read Why Does God Sometimes Make Our Faith Pointless? for some additional insight. Note that God does not really sometimes send unbearable torment.

Now, why does God sometimes send unbearable torment? First, the unbearability is unconsciously unreal, which is proven by the fact that we do not lose control of ourselves. So, why does God send the experience?

So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of subordinating everything else in our lives to the work of eliminating the unbearable torment; that is, so that we put the elimination of the unbearable torment before every other task and responsibility.

Why Does God Sometimes Make Our Faith Pointless?

You must read Why Is God Somewhat Stingy? first to be able to understand this article; especially, the concept of pardoxical drama. Note that God does not really sometimes make our faith pointless.

Now, why does God sometimes make our faith pointless?

So that we will engage in the paradoxical drama of acting without faith, which would be having faith but doing what you would do if you had no faith.
