Just saw this phrase on a Christian blog … “the necessity of God” … and it puzzled me.
I don’t know about you, but even when I was a Christian, I never felt “the necessity of God.” I mean obviously God was part of my faith, but mostly “he” was someone to send prayers to … someone to sing to in church … someone to “worship and adore” …. and of course, someone that I needed to stay on the good side of … !!
I suppose if you’re religious, God would be considered “necessary” because, after all, that’s what religion is all about. But there’s something about that phrase that seems, well, off.
To me, it makes the whole idea of “believing” rather cold and calculating. In other words, it sounds like you must agree that God is necessary before you can become a believer.
Maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m making too much of the phrase. And certainly, as a NON-BELIEVER, God is definitely not necessary.
But I’m curious. Anyone like to offer their thoughts on “the necessity of God?”
