CREATION DIALOGUE.

CREATION DIALOGUE.

OKEKE:
Why do we have to thank God all the time for creating us?

OKAFOR:
Because God is your creator.

OKEKE:
But, I did not ask to be created, so why would I thank God?

OKAFOR:
Sometimes, we do not know what is good for us until someone introduces it to us or gives a gift to us. It is the same with God; He thought that it would be good to create us, so he created us without our consent.

OKEKE:
If that is so, why are we not thanking our parents who are the actual creators that we see? We should be thanking them until we see God to thank.

OKAFOR:
By thanking God, you are also thanking your parents because God created your parents who created you.

OKEKE:
Is that why when we were growing up in Nigeria, when we thank our parents after eating, they would respond with, “Thank God”? I kept wondering when did God go to the market, buy the grocery and cook for us. I kept postponing asking them the reason they were thanking God. Now I know. But what if I thank God directly?

OKAFOR:
Well it is not that simple, God is bigger and richer than all the billionaires in this world combined. God is also so busy that God delegates duties to Angels, Saints, Clergy, and Parents. God even says in the Bible that we should honor our parents. Imagine billions of people trying to talk to God at once, it will be chaotic. That is why we also have pastors act as intermediaries. Imagine everybody in the world trying to donate money to God simultaneously? Even God will find the money too much to handle.

OKEKE:
Now I see why pastors are always asking for tithes on behalf of God. And they get to keep part of the money as commission. For big churches, the commission may be enough to buy one or two jet aircrafts for the pastor’s use. Mr Okafor, I am going to be a pastor so that I can help collect God’s money and keep the commission. Thank you for your explanations. God created me to be a pastor and I am going to be anointed soon.
