This is a dangerous attempt while I write, God, the mind-reader. So… let me attempt to get around this one without him being able to, read my writing from my mind (or is it the other way around?) Anyway.
“OK God, just for once, will you please let me have a say?”
“May I ask why? Yes…but…”
GOD “There are no buts.”
“I’m just trying to say something.”
GOD “Go ahead!”
“Thank God, because this is important. It’s a Myth: God, the Mind-Reader. Why do they say it’s dangerous?”
GOD “You know, I know Everything.”
I didn’t say this Article was going to be easy, but let me try again. That answer was short and sweet. Well… I probably should have said a bit dangerous. But, as God says he knows everything, being always a great believer in myths, fables, parables, or anything of the likes, even nursery rhymes have reality behind them. So… the danger of the myth of God being a mind-reader, is close to utterly impossible to write, without intrusion.
Anyway, the myth of God being a mind-reader is dangerous, because it is a fact. He is. Now that’s what I call an intelligent statement! From a mind-reader’s point of view, others have to be very careful what thoughts go through their minds because they’ve had it. There are no secrets. They… I mean people… say that you are what you think. Well, that’s a pretty broad statement.
So… I think, I’m not bed-ridden any more. I think when I wake up in the morning I am going to be cured of all that ails me. There are several incurables, so that’s a big thing! I think I’ll feel 21 again, and be able to catch up on everything I missed out on, over the past 11 years. I think… Well… I better not think too much. I might burst my bubble with all that rainbow thought. So I’ll just be happy with those.
I’ve been a cat with 9 lives so far, so I had better not push my luck… er, I mean my thoughts. And if we are what we eat, I’ve just had some great ice-cream: don’t get me wrong. Remember I’m doing my best to get around the dangers of God reading my mind right now, but…
GOD “You’ve earned it!”
He keeps interrupting. This is the danger. He’s right!
GOD “Don’t forget to tell them about the time I sent that old lady to give you a bowl of porridge when you worked with the homeless in Africa. You didn’t normally eat for 5 days at a time. I sent her. I provided the porridge. I used her to help me help you.”
“You know I said, “thank God!” for that one. But that’s not a dangerous myth. I’m supposed to be making really dangerous statements here about you being a mind-reader.
GOD “OK then. Tell them, all of them, whether they believe in me or not, it is no Myth that I read minds. I direct them!”
“That’s a wild one, God. I mean… do you tell someone to jump off a cliff?”
GOD “Of course not. My, direction for them, was not to jump. They, everyone, have a free will, and so if they did jump, they didn’t listen to me, did they?”
“That’s a good point. So… But… It doesn’t matter how I try and write this, and all about the danger of you being a mind-reader, I cannot escape you!”
GOD “You got that one right.”
I think I had the best end this here. I’m getting in deeper the more I try to get around the issue. If you want to prove this myth, try it against the Mind of God, and see for yourself that he is a mind-reader. I’ve tried and could quote all the myths around this subject in everything I could have looked up, in textbooks, the Internet, anywhere. But I can’t escape the truth of being interrupted here!
