Just do what he says, they say
Because he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants
So just comply…and do not ask too many questions
He will shower you with many gifts you will see
Is he a benevolent dictator then, I ask?
If I comply, I am okay, if I have queries, I’m doomed
Was it not him who declared if I follow him, I am no longer a servant but a friend?
Was it not him who inspired Apostle Paul to pen an unprecedented revelation that humankind could now be adopted as his family?
If I be a friend and not a slave
If I be a son not a subject
How can it be too much to enquire about every detail of his ways?
That I may seek more than compliance, but rather living out his ways as if my own
My heart and mind as his heart and mind
But never forget you are a mere human, they say
His ways are not our ways
His mind is way beyond our grasp
His ways are unfathomable
Your life’s demise is just a breath away
If he be a benevolent dictator, so be it
Your life is in his hands, so show up with some humility, lest you invoke his wrath
Was it not he who vindicated Job when his friends told him he can’t be queried?
Was it not he who created us after his own image?
Is it not he who desires us to be like him?
If am to be like him and he does whatever he wants, in what way do I get to be like that?
How can be like what I cannot query or understand?
I have come to this crossroad
Either I let go of this benevolent-dictator image of God
Or grow into a religious zombie if not the very image of the narcissistic benevolent dictator I am told to worship!
