Let go of unjust Gods

Posted: April 19, 2010 in religion, Uncategorized

Came across the following nice quote:

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. –Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)

So, how do you treat the Gods that preach killing innocent people? don’t you consider them unjust, unethical, and cruel? Why is it that the majority of the population in the world is worshiping a god who had ‘claimed’ that he is jealous, and asked his followers to mercilessly kill those people who are not willing  to submit to him?
