Beware the Monsters of the Deep

Diamond Mike Watson 

I believe there was a man named Jesus who felt he had such a close bond with God that he called him his father.  I believe he taught deep concepts of love and inspired all those who associated with him.  These precious teachings have shaped me into who I am today. 

However, I do not believe he was born from a virgin, walked on the water, or raised Lazarus from the dead.  If so, there are so many other spiritual leaders who are claimed to have had those same superpowers. 

If given evidence, I can entertain the notion of a Supreme Creator, but if one summarizes the entire contents of the Bible it seems this Creator is not just loving, but also hateful, angry, jealous and revengeful.  It seems like I did not describe what most people consider God, but rather the common man. 

To me the Bible is a vast ocean that was compiled from humans over 3,500 years. It is filled with every creature of the sea.  If one knows which reef to dive, one can find stories that touch our hearts and guide us to be better persons. These stories are the beautiful tropical fish. 

But because the Bible was written by humans who lacked scientific evidence, there will be passages that are filled with dangerous sharks.  Fortunately, we have this wonderful gift called mind.  In reading the Bible or any other work of humans, we must know when to swim away from the monsters of the deep.

This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]
