If you’re sure there is no God, why do you always criticize Him the way that you do?

Christmas and Christianity. And the existence or not of God!

"

 

By Stanley Collymore

 

For persons like me who take their Christian Faith seriously and

which is itself clearly juxtaposed, as has always been the case,

with a firm and unswerving belief in God Almighty, all this

might come as something of a puzzlement to those who’re

distinctly sceptical of every religion that there is and not

only the Christian one. Committed agnostics who not

only think but also openly say that they need more

persuasive arguments to thoroughly convince them that there’s

an authentic feasibility of there being a God and, moreover,

one who does actually exist. Or intransigent atheists, for

their part whose entrenched view on religion and hand

on heart approach is that it’s essentially a concerted

gambit by the societally rich and privileged elites,

and has always been so, to maintain the general

masses in check and continuous subjugation.

 

And, consequently, that religion and its earnestly embarked

on proselytizing vocation is therefore nothing more or

less in substance than a suitable and effective sop

being used by its ironically, largely irreligious

controllers to fittingly ensure that this deeply

inbuilt, structurally continuing, somewhat

controlling in its formation, perpetually

and emotionally exploitative, and a distinctly graspingly

materialistic mechanism carries on remorselessly to

their private satisfaction and covetous ambitions,

as well as their anticipated and readily looked

forward to, contented, self-aggrandizement,

while simultaneously noticeably working

extremely consciously to the calculated

disadvantage and the overall detriment

of practically everyone else in their

relevant wider communal society.

 

But crucially, too, there are those who conscionably

speculate or otherwise strongly demand to know

what the forthright and honest answer to this

unsettling and troublesome question is: “If

there’s honestly a God in existence and,

furthermore, one who is patently almighty, all-seeing,

unquestionably all-knowing and even supposedly

everlastingly good as it’s frequently suggested

and often pedantically claimed or arrogantly

pronounced that super-being genuinely is

and shall forever be. Why on earth then

does he, she or it regularly, manifestly

and unpardonably turn a blind eye to

or, worst still, uninterestedly permit

to occur the surfeit of multifarious

activities and infinitely outrageous

atrocities globally, and which specifically correlate

with demarcated concerns of political, social and

particularized injustices, extensive suffering of

all kinds and themselves hugely compounded

by calculated, gross and malevolent actions

of dispossession, mass murder, genocide,

crimes against humanity, torture and its

associated corporeal abuse; financial

corruption and human exploitation

attendant with innumerable, heart

rending incidences of what are

largely preventable diseases,

mass starvation and further

acts of planned criminality.

All of these the sickening specialities devised through

rampant imperialism and the residues of malignant

colonialism, instigated by western hemispheric

countries on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean

and afterwards disastrously fulfilled either

by Useful Idiotic sycophants working for

them or the west’s very own armed and

odious, military association: The North

Atlantic Terrorist Organization (NATO).

 

Now set all that against your personal beliefs, delusional

though several of them they might be yet despite that

are voiced openly, resonantly and arrogantly that

somehow your particular race complemented

with its professedly cherished skin colour,

together too with your culturally taught

maxim and loyally illusory aphorism

that you of all people are definitely

far superior to everyone else and,

therefore, completely entitled to

the incontestable privilege of racial and social exclusivism,

and then ask yourself why any God regardless of whom

that person is, would seriously want to save you from

your own stupidity? And if you’re half as clever as

you reckon that you are you’ll quickly recognize

why it is that God who from the very moment

of your conception knowledgeably endowed

you with the ability to think and also make

germane decisions for yourself, would in

conditions as the barbaric abuse or the

devised abandonment by you of this

divine trust and solidarity wouldn’t

or conceivably should not desire,

and taking all things into appropriate consideration,

allow you to be aptly hoisted by your own petard

while they independently opt, as any judicious

observer would not to interfere? But because

they don’t, when your stupidity eventually

smacks you head-on and catastrophically

in the face does not, if I might dare to

suggest, by any of your pertinacious

ideas suggest, let alone in any way

establish that God does not exist!

Author’s Remarks:

Whether or not you believe that Jesus Christ was actually born on the 25th December �" and credible data categorically demonstrate that he most definitely was not, as that date, having already been well recognized and completely accepted in the European pagan calendar as a very important pagan festival day and therefore the early purveyors of Christianity into this part of the world fully cognizant of this, rather pragmatically saw the wisdom of retaining it and furthermore also incorporating this day into the Christian calendar with the same degree of significance rather than scrapping it and in the process lose the prospect of gaining pagan converts to Christianity, accordingly hard-headedly adopted this important pagan day as the highlight of the European Christian calendar.

 

A ploy that worked wonderfully well, for not only did these proselytizers of Christianity into Europe succeed in their prearranged objective and turned Europe from being pagan into what superficially at any rate became a Christian entity, when Europeans subsequently began their colonization of considerable parts of the globe, though essentially at heart hardly Christian in what they were doing at the time, Christmas Day already a central plank in the Christian faith of Europeans was also transferred by whatever means, fair or foul although the latter was the most common of these methods, by these Europeans who’d colonized these territories and at the same usurped the inalienable rights of their indigenous populations.

 

So one way or another Christianity became the dominant religion not only in Europe but also the areas of the world that Europeans had colonized and accordingly dominated. Therefore, in the process of all this Christianity and particularly so Christmas Day itself, and the numerous festivities surrounding whether these were religious or in effect secular, became a significant and ensuing traditional component of the year’s calendar.

 

A time when most people endeavour, if only superficially so, to give the impression, at least publicly, that they’re essentially “decent” human beings and not at all bad as it might overly seem. Unless, of course, you happen to be a thoroughly sickening, totally dim-witted, inured, and a thoroughbred purblind, moronic warmonger like STUART PEACH: A bigwig �" what’s essentially a pseudonym for an insidious open Queer, but more likely than not a clandestine one in the hierarchical officer corps of the British Armed Forces. Fundamentally Ingrained scum without a modicum of merit or self-worth to their pathetic existence and who need to consistently and publicly grandstand in the most ludicrous of fashions to draw attention to their useless existence. Persons who gain advancement not through merit but rather through the well-practised method of bending over and enjoying it while thinking of their distinctly skewed and sick version of England.

 

And while I hold no brief for any of the nuclear nations, openly declared or clandestine as in the case of Yidland, since they’re all of them the same with thoroughly imbecilic leaders for the most part who like the feral school kids that they are in mind-set haven’t grown up and never will because they haven’t the capacity to do so and consider their nuclear arsenals in the very same way as a self-declared Lothario does his “large” penis whether he’s any good at using it effectively, it’s the identical situation with these nuclear jerks. Big mouths and no common sense behind their bragging.

 

And having gotten all that off my chest I’d now finally and importantly like to turn to you my readers, followers and those following me, through thick and thin, and say how grateful I am to you for taking some of your most valuable time to read and at times positively respond to my several articles, poetry, tweets and other online publications. And your contributions I can assure you are immensely appreciated. So especially from me, my German Partner, family members and our closest friends we wish you a truly Merry Christmas with God’s fullest blessings, and attendant with those a fantastic and most rewarding 2018. God Bless You All!
