I firmly believe in a personal God because it’s impossible for an impersonal Creator to create personal beings. It just doesn’t make sense.
In his book, The God Nobody knows, Frank Robinson also agrees that God is a personal God. He writes, “the idea of God, it seems must be the idea of a being that is in some sense personal, because a God devoid of all personal attributes, would be a far lesser God.”
God, is, therefore, personal: a personal being thinks. Therefore, God thinks, and if ‘He’ thinks, then ‘He’ thinks you are stupid.
He thinks you are stupid because you keep complaining to ‘him’ about small problems. You keep claiming that he has not blessed you just because you don’t have what the society expects you to have.
Before writing this article, it dawned on me that most of us don’t have real problems. We create our own problems based on what the society expects from us, and we use these self-made problems to conclude that God never cares about us.
For instance, in 2014, I used to believe that God didn’t care about me just because I never had enough money to hang out with ‘cool’ friends in ‘cool’ places. Besides this, I became depressed just because I never owned trendy shoes, and clothes. Poor old stupid me!
Recently, I realized how stupid I was to complain to God about lacking such silly things. Besides this, I noticed that many people today are just like the old me. STUPID! They are stupid because they fret over nonsense. Today, people can fall into depression just because they live in a cheap neighborhood, or because they have a ‘small’ salary.
If you are one of these people who fret over non-sense, yet you have somewhere good to live. Your new name is, guess what? Mr/Mrs. Stupid. Besides this, if you are one of these individuals whose all family members are alive but still complains that life is unfair, you are also STUPID.
I was also stupid in 2014, I complained about life while I lived in a spacious house, and I had caring parents, sisters, and friends. Instead of being happy by focusing on what I had, I was sad because I focused on the unnecessary things I didn’t have.
Nowadays I love focusing on the many blessings I have because it dawned on me that one day most of us will realize that we often complained about nothing. The day you’ll lose your legs or hands, or the day you’ll lose a close family member, you’ll realize that you always thought your life was bad yet you possessed wonderful blessings that many people lack.
Your family and body parts are a great blessing, and I believe you can’t give away any of them for a million dollars. Can you exchange your mum or legs for a million dollars? I guess you can’t. For this reason, realize that you have blessings bigger than your ‘small’ problems.
‘Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.’ – Robert Brault.
People have big problems out there. Most of our problems are nothing compared to some people’s hardships, and yet we complain to God that he’s not fair. I have a friend from Sierra-Leone on Facebook who told me how he witnessed his family and friends being murdered during the civil wars. I also talked to a Facebook friend who fell sick and lost his child while he was sick.
These incidences made me realize that some people will be very thankful if they lived our lives. Most of us have everything necessary for living a wonderful life, yet we are the number one complainers.
Anyway, from today we must start practicing gratitude. We must thank God for whatever we have, and he will multiply our possessions. I agree with Christianity on the point that God withholds his blessings because we don’t thank him for whatever we have.
Be thankful for whatever good thing you have because you might lose it anytime. Remember, nothing is permanent. Practice gratitude, and you will open many doors because gratitude strengthens your connection to God/Source Energy or whatever you call it. And once are connected to this God/Source Energy, you will be off to the races because nothing will be IMPOSSIBLE for you.
Finally, here’s food for thought. Imagine providing someone with the most important things he needs. However, instead of being thankful, the person starts complaining and thinks you don’t care about him just because you are not giving him more unnecessary things that will raise his social status. Will you add more things to this person, or will you be tempted to take away the things you gave him? Will you think he’s intelligent or would you just shake your head and think, ‘how stupid is this fellow?’
Anyway, let’s have a good attitude towards God. The Creator has given us enough, but ‘he’ still wants to give us more. For this reason, let’s stop complaining about what we don’t have, and think about what we have. Take a deep look at your life, and you’ll realize that you have more than enough. And, don’t be STUPID, be THANKFUL

Five Things That Make Your Belief in God Useless
N/B – I use the term, ‘God,’ and I also use the terms, ‘his’ and ‘him’ to refer to God, because they are the most common terms used in reference to The Creator/Infinite Intelligence/Source Energy
Today, many people claim that they believe in this powerful spirit we call God. However, a close observation on how these folks live shows that their belief in God is useless.
Are you a believer? Today I will enlighten you by providing you with five things that make your belief in God useless.
- Excessively Worrying About Your Problems
It’s useless to believe in God and still worry about your problems excessively. Believing in God and still worrying shows that your faith in The Creator is weak.
If you believe in God you must deeply know that this powerful loving Spirit is willing and has the ability to solve your problems when requested to do so.
You only get into alignment with The Creator’s power when you become a giver because he designed life to thrive through giving. Plants give us oxygen and food, animals give plants carbon-dioxide, the sun gives us energy, and the list of giving is endless. No matter how hard you pray, praise, and believe in God, you will suffer if you are a selfish person: people will hate you, and you will never be happy or satisfied. For this reason, your belief in God will be useless.
- You Have not Aligned with his Power
Your belief in God is useless if you are not connected with him. Studying spirituality and ancient books has made me realize that there is a way you can connect with Infinite Intelligence/God.
This connection changes your life instantly because it enables you to do magnificent things as The Creator starts expressing himself through you. It is believed that the first men and women were highly intelligent and they could build magnificent buildings such as the pyramids because they were connected with God’s power.
For this reason, make your belief in The Creator useful by aligning with his power because regardless of how hard you pray, trust, or praise God, he will only be able to work with you if you are connected with his power.
- You don’t Understand how The Creator works
There is a way The Creator works, and you can know it through studying the universe and nature. Your belief in God is useless if you don’t understand how The Creator works because you won’t know how to relate to him or fall in alignment with his infinite power.
Many spiritual teachers claim that your prayers can only work when you understand The Creator because you will know how to approach ‘him.’ Besides this, they teach that you can only have strong faith in The Creator if you know how he works.
Most of us believe in God just because we were told to do so. We have never taken our time to study how God works, and for this reason, we never truly believe in him hence making our prayers ineffective.
- You Fear Going Broke
We mostly fear going broke because we don’t know how we’ll survive when we are broke. If you believe in God and you fear going broke, your belief is useless because you don’t trust that The Creator will take care of you when you have nothing. A true believer never fears going broke because he knows that his ‘Loving Father’ will provide for him when he’s broke
Let’s be real folks, most of us claim to believe in God but our actions betray us. We believe in something we don’t really know about, and for this reason, we are always unsure of our relationship with God.
To truly believe in God you must seek to know how he works so that you fully know him. It’s easy to create a relationship with someone when you know him.

The Biggest Lie Ever: Money is the End-Goal
Today, we’ve been made to believe that money is the end-goal because it can buy happiness and comfort. For this reason, people are working in jobs they hate, and some folks will do anything – even when it hurts their physical and mental health – to get money. But is money really the end-goal? Is it important than everything else? Let’s find out.
Ancient man never needed money because he knew that everything he wanted was provided by the universe for free. If he needed water, he fetched it from rivers, and if he needed food, he either plucked fruits from trees or hunted animals. After eating and drinking his fill, ancient man spent his day exploring the world, playing games, dancing, and praying. He never spent his day worrying about money, and for this reason, he had a beautiful life.
However, modern man is depressed because he has made money his end goal. He spends all his day slaving in a job for money, and he uses his free hours to worry about money, which he spends on things he doesn’t really need. Modern man fails to realize that even though money is important, it’s not the end goal.
If you make money your end-goal, you’ll always be depressed. Besides this, you might fail to get it because you’ll avoid working on the factors that attract money. However, if you focus on building your inner world/skills and stop stressing about money, you’ll attract it.
For instance, if you learn how to work hard, persist, develop discipline, and use your mind to attract whatever you want, you will attract money easily. Furthermore, if you focus on building exceptional skills, people will pay you lots of money for them.
However, you’ll die poor and miserable if you make money your end goal because you’ll be moving from one career to another hoping to make more money. You’ll always focus on the fastest ways to get money, and you’ll avoid taking your time and effort to find the slow but sure ways of getting money. Besides this, you’ll make fake friends because you’ll use money as the determinant of whether someone can be your friend or not, and you’ll end up in a miserable relationship because you’ll choose your partner based on how much he or she earns.
The ultimate goal of life is not making money. The primary goal of life is to strengthen our connection with Infinite Intelligence/God, build our inner lives, and understand the world. Ancient man built pyramids, performed miracles, understood the language of the stars, and did many things we can’t do today because he never made money the end-goal. He could see the future, talk to the dead, and perform white magic because he mainly focused on tapping into God’s intelligence and connecting with Mother Earth. Besides ancient man, the people who made the greatest discoveries never made money the end-goal. Instead, they focused on creating inventions that could help the world.
Don’t misunderstand me, I love money and I want more of it in my life because money will enable me to explore the world, buy ten million books, take care of extinct animals, and help the poor. However, money isn’t my end goal, and I don’t use it to determine who to make friends with. Money is just a tool for me. My primary goal is to establish a connection with Infinite Intelligence and fall into alignment with the Natural Law because I believe by doing so, I will live my life in a better dimension.
Which do you believe is a good goal? Establishing your connection with universal intelligence and downloading all the wisdom necessary for understanding the world and getting whatever you want, or becoming as rich as Rockefeller?
Anyway, money is the biggest lie ever because it has taken all our focus and prevented us from focusing on knowing who we really are, and what we can do. Maybe we can shapeshift, understand animal language, fly, and communicate directly with God/Universal Intelligence (Like Moses), but we fail to do so because we focus on becoming richer than our friends and neighbours. Silly Us. We are Fucked.
“Monetary wealth is absolutely attainable in this world but having it as your main goal can distract you and keep you from doing something even greater.” – Why Money Should Never Be Your End Goal, Robert Gordon
