I should not question the wisdom of which God?

It is many a time that I have beeen advised not to question th wisdom of God. But wisdom of Which God? Biblical god? Allah? God as portrayed in hinduism? I have seen christian friends reading Koran and finding faults in it. (Thus they question the wisdom of Allah). Muslims also experts in finding erors in Bible, although they do admit that Bible was originally word of God. (But later, something bad happened. It got distorted. Why did God allow it to get distorted? Hmm, who am I to question God's wisdom?) Brahman (God as portrayed in hinduism), is far different from that of the monotheist religions and it is often that I have seen christian as well as muslim friends finding erors in the hindu scriptures. THus they question the wisdom of Brahman. In what way is it meaningful not to question the wisdom of God which you worship and to question the wisdom of God which soe other people worship? How is it that people can see cruelty very easily in the scriptures of other religions while they do not even flinch when they read the cruelty in their own scripture. (Then it becomes 'After all, it is God. God is beyond law. God can do anything.)

The problem comes from the fact that none of these religions or people really understand God. God is very very smart. That's is why so few really understand. Can you???? GOD LOVES FOR ALL HIS CHILDREN TO QUESTION!!! All the secrets of the universe stare us in the face. Don't the real answers only come to those who do question? Everything about God will always add up. If it doesn't, it's either man or you just do not understand God yet. Knowledge is never just given. It must be earned for that is the only true way to learn wisdom. God loves all His children unconditionally!!!!

Hi Frederick, There is not a person living who can prove or disprove the existence of God, so what's all the fuss about? I believe in a higher power but I can't prove it to another, nor should I want to. I think the biggest problem with religion is fundamentalism. If people would just start thinking for themselves and seeing the good in all people and all religions, we would have a wonderful world. Blessings.

First, if you will permit me a quotation from Bertrand Russell; "If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, he will scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." Religious dogma is instilled into people from at an early age. It is the rare person who realizes that all religion is myth and can free their minds from the chains that control and shape their thoughts. The hope for any future for our specie is the responsibility of people who realize that the thoughts that they have been indoctrinated with might be wrong.
