    Do you think God reads what we post at RF?

    I don't think so. He PMed me a couple of times, and based on what he was asking me, he has AT BEST skim read a couple of my incredibly informative posts.

    If he can read our minds, then reading the forum would only serve to read the same thing twice, lol.

    God would necessarily need to overcome a rather severe condition he is currently suffering from.

    That is, of course, he is suffering from an extreme case of not-existing.

    But other than that? Yeah! Why not? Santa Claus also reads every single post people write.

    How else will Santa know whom to give the coal to?

    Me? I am so looking forward to some nice, expensive coal-- due to Global Climate Change, I'm expecting another frigid February.

    Well, I suppose anything is possible, but God may read the entire internet.

    In fact, God may very well be a regular poster here in this forum - under an assumed name, of course.

    I'm relying on the firm belief (and hope) that running this and all other Universes is such a full-time job for God that our indiscretions will go unnoticed.

    God does not have to read them... God already knows what is in ALL our minds and hearts. There is no escaping God.

    “Consider, moreover, how frequently doth man become forgetful of his own self, whilst God remaineth, through His all-encompassing knowledge, aware of His creature, and continueth to shed upon him the manifest radiance of His glory. It is evident, therefore, that, in such circumstances, He is closer to him than his own self. He will, indeed, so remain for ever, for, whereas the one true God knoweth all things, perceiveth all things, and comprehendeth all things, mortal man is prone to err, and is ignorant of the mysteries that lie enfolded within him….” Gleanings From the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 186

    People like my tenant might think they are getting away with lying and manipulating but nobody gets away with anything because God knows the truth about everything, so God knows what they are thinking and doing. What God will do about his immoral behavior I cannot say, but I hope he is punished. People who hurt others out of selfishness deserve the worst punishment. At the very least after they die they will realize how much pain they caused other people and they will feel that pain themselves. I would not want to be in their shoes. :eek:

    Thanks. That verse just made my day, considering what I am going through right now. :(
    The Bible is so full of wisdom. :)

    As this is under theological concepts, then my concept is that there is nothing real but God so God is the poster, post itself and the reader.
