Why Do I Hate God?

We hate; therefore we hate God.

Todd Beal

But we won’t accept this about our self. We try to remake God in our own image, giving him the same broken attributes we call ‘being human’. We are conniving, so we think God is ‘out to get us’. We are liars, so we see God as ‘not Truth’. We don’t keep our promises; therefore we think God is untrustworthy. We are unjust, thus we assume God also is biased and cruel. We hate, so we assume God hates us; therefore we hate God.

We do these things because we are weak. We mess up and then try to do better. We go through periods of relaxing our morals and then rein ourselves in. We deeply love someone for a time; then later hate that same person for wronging us. We go through periods of maintaining profound responsibility, only to do a complete reversal and blame everyone else for our mistakes.

God does none of these things. He does not let himself go and then rein himself in. He does not tell half-truths to hide his real agenda. He does not love and then take it back.

Instead, God is truth, the destroyer of contradiction. He is completely ordered while being completely free, completely loving while maintaining absolute authority. He is all-powerful and yet intimately tender. He demands absolute obedience, yet completely forgives when we repent of our disobedience. One day he will exact a just judgment on those who hate him. And yet until that time arrives, God extends his grace to us, always inviting us to accept him into our heart and mind. If we choose to accept him, we will spend eternity in his presence, fully transformed and filled with joy unspeakable.

If we would choose to know these attributes of God, if we would choose to understand just how internally corrupt we really are, we would quake in our shoes and instantly submit to him. We would not hate him; we would give our whole life to him. We would love him back.

God is truly worthy of our adoration, our praise, our worship… our hushed respect.

About Todd Beal

I love truth and its facts. I love thought-provoking conversations that give both the other person and me a better understanding of a particular topic. I love to find answers to life-long questions; answers that let me see things for what they are instead of what they seem to be. I truly enjoy being in the midst of a group of people where all individuals are joining in, where everybody is enjoying the company of each other. I relax in the company of individuals who are competent yet humble. I like to catch myself doing or saying something ridiculous and then laugh my head off. I enjoy my church and being involved.

    Dear Todd,
    This is an interesting topic. Yes, we tend to make God be like us, but He isn’t. God sent His son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus is proof that we needed someone greater than ourselves. We don’t have power to save ourselves. Thus we need to submit to Him daily. This post speaks truth, and refuses to hear the truth. Be blessed Todd and continue to speak the truth.

      What a statement; I never thought of it that way. This gave me one of those rare light bulb moments. “Jesus is proof that we needed someone greater than ourselves.” Thanks for that.

      I tried to reconcile this phrase with the rest of your comment. Would you please explain what this means?

      Thank you, Fr. Robert. I have been pondering this topic for many years, perplexed at why people hate God. As I was writing my comment reply to you on Sunday, the phrase “We hate; therefore we hate God” suddenly rolled out of my fingers and onto the screen. I sat there, shocked. It really is that simple. We project all of our shortcomings on God and then blame him for everything bad, as if he too is corrupt like us. Wow! What an eye-opener.

      Thanks again for the affirmation, Fr. Robert.

  4. Hi Todd.
    I agree that it is a common thing for men to fashion God in their own image, just as Paul says in Romans 1:21-23. As a child I can’t remember really thinking about God at all but as I grew I suppose it was more of case of hoping that IF God IS real, He would NOT be like man. Surely He would have to be better than that!

    I was 22 years old when God revealed Himself to me – and I was convinced He was NOTHING like man. He was GOD! He was an amazing God. He changed my life completely and He became so REAL in my everyday life.

    Now, after 53 years of being His adopted, blood-bought child, and experiencing the REALITY of His constant presence, His instruction and direction, His challenge and enabling, His comfort and encouragement, His . . . well, the list is endless, as He has poured out His blessings on me.

    Hate Him? Never! Love and serve Him? My privilege and joy!

    What an amazing God!

      Angela, your testimony never wavers. That is very rare these days. It is interesting to me that, often times, individuals (like you) who go through extreme life-altering abuse, end up falling in love with God. Conversely, many people who grow up without that abuse end up hating God. There is something about personal brokenness that destroys our pride and opens up our heart to him.

      Looking back over these past several years, I can see that the more I am keenly aware of my self-inadequacy, the more my need and desire for God grows. To others, this may appear as a copout. However, we never eat when we’re stuffed to the brim, and we never go looking for “Love” when the home fires are burning bright. Where there is emptiness, we seek to fill it up. Where there is abundance, we seek to make it ours. When our longing is fulfilled, we don’t seek elsewhere.

      You are right, Angela. What an amazing God!

      • Indeed, we can hate God because we are able to hate.

        God gives us complete freedom to be, the freedom to love, the freedom to hate, the freedom to learn to love again. There is no compulsion in this. No reward or punishment.

        We may also hate God because we consider God as something separate, something outside of us, out there. In Reality, and in reality, there is no division, no separation. When we are able to accept that Being is one, there is the possibility for the removal of the veils. When we can know who we really are, what God really is, all sorts of possibilities can open up.

      Thanks a lot, Deb. Writing this post taught me a lot about myself. This has been one of those invaluable eye openers for me.

      This post leaves me with a single thought ringing in my mind: “I am terribly corrupt and completely helpless/hopeless without Christ.” This phrase has become a spiritual cliché in many conservative churches, but not so for me. This post made me look at who I am in the natural versus who I am in Christ. I am nothing without him!

      I despise anything purely cosmetic, including borrowed or popular religion! Even as a child, I became very disappointed and frustrated when something or someone proved contrary to the appealing advertisement. And the older I get, the less I can tolerate it.

      If I ever decide to marry, I will know and love my wife inside and out. Likewise, when I decided to ask Jesus into my heart, I determined to intimately know him, understand him, and serve him intensely. I determined to know the real Jesus, God’s divine son; not just with my head, but with my heart, my spirit, all of me. I will never forget the first time I spontaneously told God “I love you”. Prior to that moment, it didn’t seem possible to feel love for God. It seemed alien to me. My love for God at that moment was a most wonderful experience. I truly felt loved and put together.

      No, I don’t need superficial rhetoric. I need the person, Jesus Christ.

      Hello Michael,

      I sure am glad you stopped by. A big smile came across my face when I saw the new comment with your name attached. I sure enjoy your thoughts and fellowship.

      That is good news on your new job! I remember you said awhile back that you were looking for a leadership position because that’s what you enjoy. After that conversation, I immediately asked God to give you direction in your job search. I’m sure you don’t enjoy the long hours, but at the same time, it is so very cool that you’re using the leadership talent God gave to you!

      I am still not back to my previous writing self but I can feel it beginning to regain momentum. I also have a lot of other things going on right now, including developing an inventory application for my job. It will reduce the inventory error percentage from its current approximate spread of 5% minimum / 150% maximum to an acceptable approximate spread of .50 percent minimum / 5% maximum. I am very excited about this project.

      Additionally, I spent February through April researching and developing an excel application for calculating full cones and frustum (truncated) cones for my Dad who is an accomplished coppersmith.

      In 2005, Dad structurally restored and gold leaf-plated the copper dragon weathervane at Greenfield Village Museum in Dearborn, Michigan – an artifact originally imported from England in the 1800’s.

       

       

           

       

      In February, Dad called me and said he was to demonstrate building copper cone roofs for lathe-turned wood birdhouses at our local wood turners club. He asked me to help him research the math equations so that he could more formally present it to the club members in April. Well, the following two months will forever stand out to me as one of the most challenging yet rewarding times of my life.

      I knew nothing about trigonometry prior to February (only Algebra), but by the time Dad’s April demonstration arrived, I had acquired a working knowledge of how to calculate both frustum cones and full cones, and had developed two robust Excel applications to both automate the cone calculations and provide the cone flat pattern construction tutorials, neither of which currently exist on the internet.

      I am happy to say, the presentation was a success. Dad and I teamed up together: he presented the hands-on coppersmithing; I presented the software. Out of thirty-five wood turners, twenty-three lined up afterward, requesting Dad’s cone patterns and my cone calculators.

      Now those guys have real tools to create something that is both fun and personally rewarding without any background whatsoever in advanced mathematics. They just enter the cone dimensions into the calculator and use the results. The icing on the cake is this: after years of creating awesome works of art, Dad finally has an automated cone calculator, allowing him to replace tedious, time-consuming calculations with immediate creative results.

      The great thing about this whole process is that now I can truly appreciate my Dad’s coppersmithing expertise. What a skill! It involves nothing less than translating a geometric shape into its equivalent trigonometric equation, and then physically transforming that abstraction into a stunning work of art. I gained a whole new respect for my father these past few months. What a privilege it was to serve him.

      Well, those are the main events that have occupied my time. It’s good to talk to you again Michael. Thanks a lot for stopping by!

        Your dad’s work is exquisite! How interesting that you were able to help your Dad make beautiful things. A true marriage of art, science, and mathematics. One of your talents is finding economy and efficiency in material things, and logic and symmetry in spiritual things. That’s a great and rare ability to have.

        There’s more to the story of my new job that I feel is appropriate to share here. I spent more than 9 months looking for a new position, because I knew my current one would soon be eliminated as the client contract was going to expire. This time, I wanted to do things differently. Instead of just looking for a good company and a good salary, I told God in prayer that I wanted to work where HE wanted me to work. If it wasn’t right, I wanted to be turned away, because I was afraid of being tempted to accept the wrong job offer. Every day I prayed for this and 4 other things in my new job:

        1) An opportunity to provide more abundantly for my family.
        2) A chance to further develop my talents and leadership abilities.
        3) An opportunity to help young people become better leaders.
        4) A mountain view from my office.

        For 9 months I searched, and to make a long story short, I was rejected at every turn. I must have interviewed with more than 15 companies, and three times the hiring director narrowed it down to me and one other candidate. I came in second place each time. Other times I thought I interviewed very well but received no call back. I kept telling my Heavenly Father that I trusted him, that I was on His timetable, not mine, and I refused to give in and accept the first thing I was offered (which, in fortunate retrospect, was nothing!).

        Finally in March, I came in for an interview and I KNEW the moment I met my future boss that she was the person I’d be working for. She explained that she had been looking for more than a year for someone to come in and provide leadership and development for a department with several young supervisors who were young, inexperienced, and struggling to find themselves. She looked me in the eye and asked me if I was that person. I was able to tell her, “I believe I am.” I received an offer the next day for a 15% increase over my previous salary. Since then, I have worked hard (mostly 12 hour days), but I’ve felt nothing but gratitude and acceptance from my new team and I KNOW this is where I’m supposed to be.

        Oh, and though I don’t have an office yet (the building is still being built out and I’m sitting in a table in an open area), last week I got the chance to stand in the place where my new office will be constructed. I hadn’t thought much about my item #4 above, and I knew the building faced the interstate and several other office buildings. You can imagine how humbled I felt when I looked out the window and saw that I had a clear view of Ensign Peak and the Wasatch mountains between the other buldings.

        I’m convinced that our prayers will be answered with EXACTNESS if we make sure our wishes are in line with what is good and what God wants for us.

          Michael,

          Thanks for your appreciation of Dad’s work. That’s very cool. Also, thank you for that description of my talents. I have not thought of them in that way. The definitional identity you gave to them lets me think about them, and work with them, separately from their output, which in turn, will show what needs improvement.

          Your approach to your job search is the epitome of God-given faith. It is the very approach I addressed in my post: Why Won’t God Answer My Prayer? This proves once again that God always gives faith to an open heart.

          | I’m convinced that our prayers will be answered with EXACTNESS if we make sure our wishes are in line with what is good and what God wants for us. |

          Absolutely! That is a True statement! Jesus said that whatever we ask in faith, it will be done. God is good, Michael, and you are living proof that he delivers on his promises. This makes we want to fire up and dig in deeper with God. It was so uplifting and humbling to read your journey. Thanks a lot for that.

      I too have felt the same way you do. I’d love for you to allow me to talk to you about why you feel this way and what is going on in your life to make you feel this way.

      I lost my dad to cancer in 2008. He was a wonderful Christian man, and he and my mom raised us in church; like every time the door to the church was unlocked, we were there. He was first diagnosed when he was 27. I was only 4 years old and was a daddy’s girl!! He would go into remission only to have the cancer come back. He fought this battle until he turned 60 and God allowed his suffering to end. The last time he was diagnosed, I prayed & prayed and felt sure deep in my heart that God would not take my dad. When my dad passed away, I hated God. I wanted nothing to do with church; I blamed Him for taking my dad away from me, my mom & my brothers and sister. I started abusing my medication just to numb the pain and I didn’t want anyone to try and talk to me about God and how I needed to pray, read the Bible or go to church! I was married and a mother of three teenagers at this time and for four years I was completely absent from my family’s life. I didn’t care about anything, including myself. I was so wrapped up in my hatred that nothing could penetrate it. There were times I would be so high on my medication that I couldn’t remember driving from point A to point B, and I not only had my kids in the car but other people’s kids. One day I was driving my daughter’s friend home from school and my skin was crawling because I had ran out of my meds and it was too soon to get more, I don’t remember dropping the little girl off, I don’t remember pulling into a parking lot and calling my husband or what I said to him. I ended up in the Emergency room and from then on for a couple years my husband had my medication under lock and key. This was so hard on me because not only was I going through withdrawals but it was making me face that my dad wasn’t here anymore. While it was horrible going through it at the time, it was the best thing that could’ve happened. I was still angry and didn’t want anything to do with church, but I couldn’t stand the thought of my mom sitting alone in the pew that her and my dad always sat in.

      In April of this year, someone was singing a song in church and I felt God tugging at my heart but I was still so angry I would not give in! A woman came and sat next to me, put her arms around me and started praying. I fought it at first, I fought it with all my might but I could feel God’s love so strongly I just started weeping and without even thinking about it heard myself asking God for his forgiveness for blaming him and being so angry for so long and I literally felt all that anger leave my body and felt it go out the church window. I don’t know how to explain it any simpler than that, but that’s exactly what happened.

      I did seek counseling and was constantly asking my therapist “Why did God take my dad when I needed him so badly”. I learned that God doesn’t make the bad things happen. Satan has control on this earth and it’s up to us, our free will that God gave us, to either choose right or wrong. Yes, when bad things happen, we are quick to blame God because we know He has the power to stop things, but He is not to blame! In these times we need to look at our circumstances and find out what it is in our life, or situation, that is making us suffer.

      God isn’t to blame. He is love and that’s all He wants from us, to accept His love and serve Him.

      I’m not saying that if you accept Him into your heart that everything will always be wonderful because it won’t be. There is too much evil in this world. But that’s when we know, without a doubt, that all we have to do is talk to God, tell Him our troubles and He will fill us up with so much love and peace it’s amazing!! And He will be there for you every step of the way. He will NEVER leave you. This is His promise to us.

      I will pray for you and I pray that something I’ve said has reached a part of you that will want you to talk, to look to God for the help you are needing to end the suffering you’re going through. I will be here if you ever want to talk. I will never judge you! I only want to help.

      I feel your pain and know it all too well. Growing up, all I dreamed of was being a wife and mother. But in my search to find a good man, I got hurt over and over again and finally decided I didn’t want a relationship. I was fine living my life with just my son and me. Notice I said the word “fine”. I was happy but I wasn’t complete, and at the time that was enough. I completely shut myself off from any thoughts of wanting a relationship because I always ended up being the one who was hurting, while the men who I thought cared for me went on and lived their lives without a second thought of how they affected my life.

      I took a good hard look at myself during that time, and I could see how I changed myself to be the person “he” wanted me to be so he wouldn’t leave me. On one hand I was happy because I had someone, but on the other hand I wasn’t happy because I had to give up me to have him.

      So I stopped looking. I learned I didn’t NEED a man in my life to make me happy. Yes, I still longed for a loving relationship, someone to share my life with, but, I needed that someone to love me for me, not for who they thought I should be to make them happy.

      You need to take time to yourself to heal. You absolutely have the right to have your bitterness and anger because of what was done to you, but you need to get rid of it. Otherwise, you will carry it into your next relationship and it will push her away because that’s not really who you are.

      After you take this time to yourself – and I pray you do – look at where you are trying to find the right woman for you. What type of women frequent the places you are looking? Are they trashy women, or good women who are sincere and honest? God doesn’t make trashy women, or men for that matter. He gave us free will to do what we want. The blame for making ourselves trashy is on us, not God. So, we can choose to follow the path of goodness, and find true happiness and fulfillment in our hearts and in our lives because God is on that path, or we can continue down the path that’s easiest and not work on our self, because it allows us to remain bitter and angry, blaming God for what is not His fault but the result of our own choices.

      My heart is hurting for you because I know exactly how you’re feeling. I pray that something I’ve said has not offended you in any way, and that you will want to continue to keep this line of communication open. I want you to know so badly that God loves us! He wants what is best for us in our lives because we are His children. I can tell you that when you do decide, and I pray you do, to open your heart to God and all He has to offer you, you will feel a love like you’ve never felt before in your life.

    TO ANGIE, at least you know how i feel. i hate being alone like i have mentioned, and at least you have a son. i have no children at all, and i will admit that us men are certainly the much weaker sex when it comes to being very much alone. i am in my late fifties, and as you can see most men my age are settled down with a wife and family. the straight ones like us that is. coming home to an empty house after a day of work is much worse, especially when you look for someone to talk too and no one is there. i make sure i go out every single night, since i have no one to stay home too. i mean who would want to stay home by themselves, certainly not me. i will say this, there are many people that probably do when they have a loved one to be with. and that certainly would make sense, especially having one another. i just seem to meet so many loser women in my life, instead of a real good one that would really change my life completely around. when i was married at the time, it was wonderful knowing that i had her at the time and we had many very good times together. it certainly means a lot to have someone to be with, and with so many divorces today it is a real shame. and so many women today that are making a lot of money, have that attitude of not having a man in their life to be with. many of them think that they are all that now, but it will eventually catch up with them at the end. you can see over the years how women have completely changed for the worse, and years ago they had no choice but to accept the man for who he was and he did not have to have a lot of money to be loved. just look at our parents and grandparents, they are a perfect example that their marriages lasted a very long time and they were very much committed to one another too. my aunt and uncle are starting their 65th year together, they were married on MAY 1ST 1948, and still going strong today. sure they had problems, but they always worked it out together. i always tell them how VERY LUCKY they are to be together, when i talk to them. i have to say that the men and women that were very FORTUNATE to have met one another and have a family, should certainly go to CHURCH to pray and really thank GOD for having a life that i would have wanted too. i want to thank you very much for your support, and i hope that i could meet someone like you soon. have a happy holiday, PEACE.

    God gives you what you don’t want and expect you to to be grateful and thankful for that.I might be weak and not understanding at all but i know what i want.All my life,till this very day,there isn’t a single thing i like if He has given me anything at all.I trusted Him,believed Him for a very long time but now,i’m run out of trust and believe and i just hate Him for everything.But,then again it doesn’t mean i love Lucifer.he just loves torturing people and enjoy the suffering of people and God?He would just enjoy watching it.And when He is bored He starts testing people around.To be put in the simplest way,I HATE GOD AND HIS IMPERFECT ANNOYING BLACK LITTLE ANGEL LUCIFER.And i am very much ANGRY.At times,when i really really needed God and when i prayed to Him all i get is “………………….” Now let’s see if He is eager to put me into a test or trial when i hate Him.Let me see if His wrath travels so eager and so fast when i curse Him and blasphemy.

    • God gives you what you want, and we don’t need most of what we want. God, in the bible blames man for being man, but can’t change things, without cooperation. This is more empowering to us, than a mighty God in charge ready to kill the enemy. Thank god.

      Jim,
      What have you asked God to give you that, because you haven’t received it, makes you hate him?

    I Googled “Why I hate God” and found this. I think I hate him but I don’t want to. I’m full of anger and resentment for things that I have done and things done to me (things done to me by other christians). I hate evil and hate what the world has become, and I hate myself because I’m a part of it – and I hate God because I guess I blame him for being here. I hate that Christians talk about God like they know him when none of us have a clue about him. I really know nothing about him (and I’ve read the bible) and I feel like praying to him is useless because who am I that I have anything profound to say to him or anything that he doesn’t already know?

      Praying is an act of futility period. Why would you need to pray if he’s all knowing? Why would you pray for help if he’s always there? Does he just stand by and watch people suffer? This god that people pray to is either weak, uncaring, un knowing or just not there. I can pray to the tooth fairy and get the same results.

        Dear Scott, prayer is given to us by God, if it is experienced as futile, then that is down to our own ignorance about the true nature of prayer. If one accepts the proposition that Being is one and unique, and that there is no separation in reality, then any sense of separation is in our minds, in our beliefs. Prayer is a means of getting closer to God. Not a separate God who “just stands by and watch[es] people suffer”, but a God who cares. But not a God who ‘intervenes’ every time we don’t like something, however terrible and painful and seemingly random, and however small and petty, because we all blame God for those things too. Life happens. A sage once said ‘suffering is inevitable, joy is inevitable’. It IS a mystery, and one needs to trust. Trust that God is in essence, compassionate, merciful, loving. We can pray because we want this or that to happen or not happen. We can pray because we want – money, success, no pain or difficulty etc. Or we can pray with trust, humility and surrender (and make no mistake this is not easy) to conform to God’s will for us and know, that however hard it is, and however much God appears to not listen, He is closer to us than we know, and if we hurt, He hurts. We can simply pray to be brought closer, especially when we are frightened and distrusting. You could try this contemplation – ‘He is me, I am not Him, but I am no other than Him.’ Be at Peace.

          Your god stood by as children were herded into concentration camps. Your god is useless. Contemplate that.

        Nelda I think it’s really absurd how Christians make excuses for god. They always look the other way when it comes to atrocities, they say god isn’t responsible, yet if I saw a child being abused and didn’t do anything to stop it I would be guilty. Their god ordered some appalling things be done in the old testament, maybe that’s why they’re ok with god’s inaction.

        • I understand how you are feeling Scott, very much understand, even considered myself a Christian for long time. My previous reply was to Aaron…..but if you still want to talk I can listen, even I do not have the answers.
