I am not a writer. I prefer to express myself in images rather than words, but a concept hit me last night and I had to write the first paragraph...... Where will this take me? I don't know maybe I will post 'God's Dilemma a Comedy' (working title) one chapter at a time here on this blog or on a seperate blog about the book project.
How should I go about this? What do you think? Anyway it is my idea so I think I will play this out and see where it takes me.
God's Dilemma a Comedy - copyright 2011.
God sat in a Los Angeles hotel room sipping a diet Coke from the minibar. He had a big problem...
God had gone off to sort out what to do about mankind while the plague ravaged Europe eight hundred years ago. He had known for some time that mankind was becoming too technologically advanced and this would quickly lead to trouble. He had no idea it would happen so fast. The idea of free will and and moderate intellect in human beings seemed like such a nifty idea when he created human beings.... It was part of the whole 'in our image' campaign of the times. He had spent the last three weeks getting up to speed on the last eight hundred years. He was amazed at what a teenager with an Ipad could do. He really did marvel at his creation sometimes, but they were also horribly flawed and cruel. It was time for a mid course correction. Should God simply wipe the slate clean again and call earth 1.o anexperiment and use what he learned this time or should he help this race of people to figure out how to fix it for themselves?
He had opted for the later and would right a new book. A 'New' new book actually. this lead to all sorts of questions about how to deliver the content... Could God write a blog? Anybody could do that. Who would believe him? Should he self publish a book? Did he need an agent? Should he make his presence known... That would open the whole can of worms on faith.... Where to start. It was all too much. For now he would work on his tan for a few days and come up with a plan.
