Our cities, states, countries, and seemingly the whole world, seem to be coming apart at the seams.
While many of us live in relative comfort, the wars, killing, economic strife, lack of morals, decency, and just common sense, take a heavy toll on our spirits and psyches.
But how do we as individuals overcome the enormity of hate, prejudice, selfishness, greed, corruption, and all the other bad things going on in our world?
It starts with getting our moral imperatives back and it is no coincidence that our slide into unprincipledness is accompanied by less interest in religion and belief in God in our world.
However, understand that this is not a book about religion or bringing you back to religion.
Religion, like our governments, corporations, organizations, schools, institutions and even our science, are corruptible, fallible, misguided, and possibly worse.
The fact is that us and everything in our world, our universe is imperfect, flawed, and finite.
This book is about trying to understand and accept that there is a different, perfect, infinite plain of existence, and that there is a perfect being that dwells there.
And that can lead us into becoming more moral people and change our world.
Some Thoughts on God and Other Things by Jerome Gleich is a great read for all. It’s not convincing readers to believe in anything but to address the real issues of life. It shows us what’s really happening and how fast our world has changed. We have gone from a world with the “trust in God” to dismissing God completely. Our behaviors as a moral group of people has dramatically declined. When we turned our backs on God as a whole, we all have become more violent, angry, and full of hatred. Flaws are everywhere including in each one of us. But by accepting that God is there…or that there is a God who is good…it changes how we behave as a person, as a group and as a nation. Jerome Gleich’s book is a must read. I was already a believer in God, but the fact that someone else has noticed that the more we turn against God, the more we have fallen…
Some Thoughts on God and Other Things is a deep, thought provoking read. It engages reader to read, listen, and re-read it again. Our world is changing. Yes, some change is good; however, not all change has made us better. Instead it led to where we are now…sad, but real. I liked how Jerome Gleich doesn’t push readers into believing in God but at the same time, leaves them with enough to re-think about it. Overall, I think this writer’s points were well-written, and I would recommend this to readers everywhere.
