Does God Sleep on Saturday?

Maybe God wants everyone to sleep with him. Maybe that’s what the Sabbath is all about. Seriously, for all anybody knows, the Bible could be saying exactly that. Maybe he wants everyone to be asleep at the same time; in particular, when he is asleep himself. Maybe that’s how he works his magic… Ya know, like Freddy Krueger.

I think people don’t want to give up their religion because of its threats and promises. They WANT to believe it because without it, they lose the hope it gave them as children when they were afraid of its threats. Later, they may be afraid of those same threats.

I can only hope these people find it in themselves to refuse to be threatened by unprovable hearsay and that they will choose to reject those beliefs that don’t make sense — beliefs they were told to have on pain of death and worse.
