Ah.. sometimes it should just be enough that we believe in God.. regardless of religion and faith. Well penned :)Lots of love,Sanaa
Thanks, we agree!
Really.. this got me thinking.. brilliant in it's briefness.
Thanks, I believe it's just that simple.
A brilliant piece - Kudos.
“Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.”― Carl SaganQuestion is what does god look like? could be a woman? Alien? Something else?wow!!! I truly love the way you put and wrote this poem. :) Excellent my friend.
Thanks, when people ask for details, I tell them that I'm a nontheistic, Christian existentialist. That seems to quiet / confuse them.
What an interesting philosophy!
I get your point...love this!
I just read your comment that the you used to define yourself spiritually. And I'm smiling. I think it's so important to honor everyone's belief, or for that matter, lack of belief.
Short and you drive home the point Mosk ~
I used to tell people I was a pantheistic Gnostic, with New Age trappings, married to a Jew, raised by a Communist, street-wise, with a Masters in Metaphysics. Now at my advanced age, I find myself with more patience toward the fundamentalists & mentally ill that outnumber the rational among us. Liked the brevity, wit, & vertex of your piece.
There is indeed a distinct difference...
When I say to someone I believe in God and they say "Cool!", it makes me smile because they respect I believe and not what or how. S'truth. Happened yesterday. Made me smile in idiotic Zen delight for several hours afterward. nice, short non-judgemental poem.
Short and to the point. As a former anthropologist of religion, I can fully empathise with that.
amazing the terms used in religious circles
Packs a powerful and thought provoking punch!

If you told me you believe in God, I would be more likely to ask, "How did you come to know Him?" Peace, Linda
