In God I Trust

In God I Trust
In God I Trust…little else

In God I trust,
religion I do not,
nor governments, leaders,
and those with whom we relay upon
to lead this world to a better place.

And even God is no figure of reliance,
that is a human delusion, rather
the master IS creation and all that we are is of him, by him,
yet he determines not the course of our lives,
that is ours to fathom and survive.

Our course is set by we alone,
and determined by our deeds, our learning,
our pursuits of love, compassion and acceptance,
or our deviations from right,
the causation of all our misery.

God considers not our plight,
tis the rules of his creation that impose our fights,
our abuse of natural laws and ignorance,
driven by egos that befit far lesser forms,
our potential so maligned in sight.

Tis not God who defiles, ravages and is cruel
to other life, only we carry that consequence,
and tis not God who gave us reason to kill and maim,
rape children, batter women and torture life in His name,
that is our disrespect and arrogance.

God takes no responsibility for your sins,
so why do we expect him to,
forgiveness an exoneration complete,
passing the buck to God or anyone else is pure weakness,
for in doing that you slander his name,
for you are a part of him.

If humanity accepted God as our creator,
and what lives within us all in potential,
then relented all religious dogma
and lived for love, then we could have our paradise,
and blame would be an echo of past regret.

    This is the most common sense about humanity and why God created us Tony. He put us here to use our intelligence to the best potential. I blame God for nothing, I do not expect Him to make all things right for me. It is my own responsibility to hold true to my highest truths and follow my path to the best of my ability. Thank you for writing this. Great work Tony.

    Beautiful title and such truths you speak of. It is our will that God gave us to choose good from evil and to reap what we sow.
    Already commented here once but it didn’t take for some reason. I will have to start double checking on that.
