I woke up at insomnia O'clock. After tossing and turning for a bit, I decided to check on Facebook. I had an alert that showed one of my atheist friends mentioned me in a post. I clicked on the post and the comment read, "Marti should check this video" The video was the following:
What is God?- Sandhguru
I watched it three times. I closely considered each point. Sandhguru warmly shared his philosophy on God and creation. He was even quite humorous, but in the end his warmth and smiles led to darkness.
Below was my reply to my friend's comment.
Sadhguru is correct when stating gods are cultural influences.
The Bible commands us in both the Old and New Testaments not to “make” or worship gods and idols. It is the first of the Ten Commandments, “Thou shalt not have other gods before me“
(For your reference if you so desire to read for yourself http://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Bible-Verses-About-Idol-Worship/ )
Sadhguru humorously explains how people view who God is to reflect who they are (white, black, brown, woman).
He is correct, people wrongly identify Him. Truth is, God is Spirit. This article from got questions.org explains it better than I could at 4 O’clock in the morning. http://www.gotquestions.org/God-male-female.html
Sandhguru says, “Whatever definition you put on yourself is not correct”
Not only is that possibly the most contradicting statement ever made, it is the cruelest thing one person could tell another. He is essentially saying no one has purpose, no one is sane (we are all delusional), we can’t trust anyone or anything, there are no absolutes. Why would anyone of us care what we do in this existence if this were true. Oh, wait….how could it be true when truth can’t be defined?!
Sandhguru in his conclusion says, “The source of creation, how are you going to put a definition on it? You can not define it, you can not understand it, you can only dissolve in it.”
Sandhguru’s philosophy tells me none of us are important because if we defined ourselves as such, we were wrong. It tells me not to believe who anyone says they are because they are incorrect. This has brought such clarity! Oh my goodness, there is no reason for life, there is no reason to continue living! Not only that I have done my extremely depressed daughter a huge disservice by teaching her the I AM of the Holy Bible was wrong when he said, For I know the plans I have for you, “declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11) When I taught her our God, the I AM loves her and she is the apple of His eye. (Zechariah 2:8). I think of all the scriptures I fed into her life….scriptures of love, joy, peace, selflessness, God’s laws…..and SALVATION through Jesus Christ for her sins! What was I thinking?!! I ‘thought’ I was a good mother, but I was incorrect!!!! I should of let her continue in her incorrect definition of herself…the one that gave her permission to hurt herself.
By Sandhguru’s own admission through his philosopy, he is not a guru and what he is teaching is incorrect.
After careful consideration, I choose to hold fast to what Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) I will follow Him wherever He leads me. I will serve Him and only Him.
If you atheists still think I am delusional for believing in the God of the Bible, so be it. It really shouldn’t matter to you anyways, after all according to your beliefs you are just as uncertain, incorrect, and delusional for your unbelief.
