A religious person carries with them a concern (reasonably SHOULD be concerned) that non-believers do not share.
For the religious believer there is a very real dimension of beings who are actively invasive in human affairs.
These beings are angels, demons, Jinns, gods, spirits, ghosts---you name it--scrutinizing our every move, reading our minds (some say) and
greatly aroused by women in a sexual way!
Indeed, the scriptures do not blush to inform us that angels lusted after women in times past and impregnated them successfully!
Presumably, God himself can peer into our bedroom to evaluate the sexual preferences of humanity and audit the very thoughts within
our skulls so as to accuse or excuse the intangible and momentary lascivious consciousness of our corrupt musings, lusts and reveries.
Mary's womb received heavenly ghost semen to produce a starchild named Jesus (well, you call it what YOU prefer!) and an entire planet has faced
the cultic preoccupation of humans enthralled by that manifestation.
The Devil, Satan, and his angry demon hordes can infest us, tempt us, invade our dwelling and shake our bed. The Gadarenes in Jesus time
dealt with an apalling infestation with one man, Legion, somehow inhabited by 6,000 demons all at once! Makes one wonder aloud how tiny these brutes must be?
Do we really have to submit to such surveillance 24/7? Hasn't God and his minions gone too far? Is there no such thing as PRIVACY if you are a believer? Even after death you cannot escape! The majority of religious faithful are fully indoctrinated in the apalling idea that we cannot escape the celestial jailers on the other side of death. Exasperatingly, for all eternity there is not a second of privacy or escape from mind-reading and thought crime!
Isn't it really REVEALING of the mind who believes such things how unhealthy these ruminations are?
Does this not border on fringe sanity?
When I was an active Jehovah's Witness I prayed silently because JEHOVAH COULD READ MY THOUGHTS!
As far as I knew, there was no "off" button to prevent less praiseworthy eavesdropping on the corrupt roster of my predilections!
Fess up--aren't you slightly ashamed that you ---as a believer---must confess to embracing all such scrutiny from which you cannot ever be free??
Doesn't it ever seem slightly perverse?
How can you defend it?
