(1) 愛是什麼 What Is Love 1 神 God

上帝是最好的朋友

有人曾問我:我為什麼要禱告?為什麼需要上帝?我不需要任何神。在我的生活,我就是這樣,我有工作,我有職業。我告訴他,你是位真誠的人,誠實善良。但是你有沒有想過,神不僅是幫助我們?你想過上帝可以成為你最好的朋友嗎?甚至與祂喝點酒?能與祂自在得建立關係,不為任何利益或好處嗎?聽後他很驚訝。我告訴他,人與人之間的關係不是建立在彼此的興趣。假設上帝存在,我說假設因為他不相信神。如果上帝存在,你對神的想法是什麼?如果你是東正教徒,你就會知道,上帝是愛你的,無論你信不信祂,所以你對這終極的愛人有何感受?
還更多的是,這位神是如此的謙卑,因此祂不會迫使你信祂。祂在你面前隱藏。如果你開始愛祂,逐漸地祂將會越來越明顯……
他聽後很驚訝,但他告訴我,他會想一想。至今我仍然在等待他……
那麼你呢?有何感想?

God as best friend.
Somebody asked me: I do not need any god. What I did in my life I do by my work, my job. Why to pray? why to have god? I told him, really you are very worthy person, honest and good. But did you ever think, that god is not only to help us? Go you think god can be your best friend? Even to drink some wine with him? To have a relationship free of any interest or favors? He was surprised. I Told him, Human relationships are not all based on interest. Suppose that god exists, I say suppose because this person does not believe to God. If he exist, what is your idea about him? If you are orthodox, you would know that God is loving you, whatever you are, -no-matter you believe to him or not- , so how do you feel about this ultimate lover?
More over, this God is so polite, so that he does not force you, to believe to him. He is hiding from you. If you start loving him, gradually he will be more obvious…..
He was very surprised, and he told me, he will think about. I am still waiting for him, ….
How about you? any comment?
