How to avoid loving God

By Tom Quiner

If you think about it, it is hard not to love God.

After all, God IS love.

After all, God IS our creator. Everything we have comes from Him. All is a gift from Him.

After all, we were made in His image. We are family, and doesn’t family love each other?

The late, great Archbishop Fulton Sheen, explains how we succeed in not loving God:

“There are several ways to avoid loving God: Deny that you are a sinner. Pretend that religion is for the ignorant and the superstitious, but not for the learned such as yourself. Insist that the sole purpose of religion is social service. Judge religion by whether or not it is accepted by the important people of the world. Avoid all contemplation, self-examination, and inquiry into the moral state of your soul.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen (God Love You)

It’s not easy to not love God. Thanks to Bishop Sheen for this timeless wake up call.

    Loving God?….with a dose of cruelty, murder and bigotry.
