The God Above God


Once upon a time in a realm far, far away there was an entity in an infinite sea of nothingness.  From this entity (the Absolute), emanated a creative force.  This creative force longed to emulate the Absolute and in turn created other creative forces, producing a hierarchy of divine beings.

One of the lower creative forces so created was an abomination, an arrogant beast who did not obey his own creator. This lower creative force, in turn, fashioned man out of the Chaos from already-existing divine essences and man then promptly fell into matter.  Despite containing the divine spark, man looked outside of himself for the Creator.

Now, the god of man was a jealous god who took himself for the Absolute.  So he told man that “I am God and there is no other God besides me”.   So man worshipped him as the one true god without ever realizing that there was another god above him.

    All hail Yaltaboath!

  2. God didn’t create this creation as a puzzle to text to see how many different concepts of God man can invent. God created this creation to see who is best in conduct. God wants to know those who are grateful to Him from those who are ungrateful to Him. He promise to send the grateful people to Heaven for their eternal life and the ungrateful people to hell for their eternal life. It sounds like justice to me. I wouldn’t want to find myself in hell before I realize I was wrong. The righteous people strive to please God, because they believe God’s promise and they want to be of those who live forever in a Paradise, not hell. There’s but one creation and one Creator.

      Thank you for your comments. I agree that man should strive to be righteous but not simply to please God, rather because it’s the moral thing to do.
      No doubt, there will be differing opinions on exactly what is moral or what God intended and, although many will profess that God spoke to them alone, no one can prove or disprove the existence of God.

  3. Faith is believing without seeing. It will be too late when we see God; that’s proof not faith.
