Your Question About Easy Weight Loss

Nancy asks…

What is the best way to describe a relationship with a deity?

I know it’s bad to say “I use [deity]”, but I’ve heard it’s also bad to say “I work with [deity]”. I usually say “I follow Athena”, but is that also viewed as bad? What’s the best way to phrase it?

weight loss cardiff answers:

The best word for that is worship. You are worshipping Athena. That is the best way to phrase it.

God bless you.

Peace out.

Sandy asks…

Can a cosmic deity truly harbor human emotions like love or hate?

People say God loves everyone or hates certain people, but if the deity is impossible for humans to comprehend then how can we put human states on him, only humans love and hate.

Just a thought I had.

weight loss cardiff answers:

My answer will no doubt be laughed at, but let’s put it in another context.

Scenario 1:
Sally asks Joe for a date. Joe turns Sally down. Sally may feel upset, despair, hurt, or that Joe really didn’t understand the “true” her. Perhaps Joe just doesn’t know what he would be missing. Sally may even become angry or worse yet, perhaps violent. Was Sally rejected? Yes, she was. The feelings she experienced are those of rejection and anyone who has ever been turned down in such a way is likely to feel some or all of these.

Scenario 2:
Sally tries to set Joe up on a blind date with Lisa. Joe turns down the offer. Was Sally rejected? Of course not. Lisa-but neither has Joe rejected Lisa-whom he has never met. Joe may think that Sally is trying to make Lisa look better than she is. He may even think that Lisa didn’t actually exist at all. Regardless, Joe did not actually reject Lisa nor Sally. Would Sally have any reason to feel rejected? No. Sally and Lisa are two different people.

So what does this mean? Why would Sally (the believer) feel rejected if Lisa (God) was turned down? Because Sally (the believer) IS Lisa (God).

God is the believer, and the believer is God. That is why God has so many emotions. The personal God is merely a complex relationship with an idealized alter-ego self. Each person has his or her own “understanding” of “God’s will” precisely because each person has their own perception. The feeling they get “in their heart” is simply their conscience-which we all have. It is not God that makes them feel bad for having done something, or God that “warns” them to stay away from certain people or actions.

Why does God seem to know everything about you? Because he IS you.

Betty asks…

How can a deity be all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present?

Or in other words, omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent?

After all, if a deity is all-powerful, they can make themselves not be present somewhere, or not know something, but if they are omniscient they can’t make themselves not know something, which would mean that they weren’t omnipotent, etc.

How do you get away from this if you believe in a deity or deities who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-present?

(Used themselves so as not to infer gender or particular religion into the argument.)

weight loss cardiff answers:

Omnipotence, itself, is self-contradicting.

The popular example: Can God create a stone, so heavy, that he can’t lift it?

If he can, he isn’t omnipotent. If he can’t, he isn’t omnipotent.
