More stupid shit from Gutman Locks.
by Reb Gutman Locks
The conversation went something like this:
Abe: Why did Hashem create the Universe?
Gutman: He had a problem. Hashem is extremely loving, but before the creation, He did not have anyone to love, so He had to create us to have someone to love.
Except that god has no emotions nor needs, since those are the result of mortal nature. (Allegedly, of course, bc no one actually knows jack shit about a being that doesn’t exist.) But please, go on…
Abe: Okay, that’s fine for Him, but what about us when we are miserable?
Gutman: If you are miserable, you are going to have to come back to this world again and again, until you figure out that Hashem has placed us (you and me) in the Garden of Eden so we can have a good time.
This sounds so fucking twisted. It’s kinda like, “I’m gonna keep hurting you till you recognize it’s out of love and that you should like it.”
"Thank you, Sir. May I have another?!"
Abe: But your answer does not answer the question, that when one is growing [sic] through a very “tough” time, where does such a person, feel the love? Or what’s in it for that person?
Just answering, you are going to come back again and again, doesn’t cut it or answer the question.
Gutman: Knowing that you are supposed to be enjoying yourself is half the solution. If you are not enjoying yourself, you are doing something wrong. Nothing comes without a good reason. It most likely is that the misery has come to you because you caused someone else misery. When you act that way you need that misery to come to you to show you what you have to change. It would be cruel for us to do something wrong and not be told about it.
Are you in pain? Miserable? Depressed? Suicidal? Getting Chemo? Grieving? - You probably brought it on yourself! So “enjoy yourself” but suffer, and learn from that suffering bc it’s a message for you to stop hurting others.
Yeah, solid advice from a nutjob. (I can’t believe how many people are hearing this kind of crazy bullshit - let alone when they may be suffering. Just adds insult to injury.)
… This is the point of our having to come back. If we were justified in being miserable, then our reaction would simply be a proper result of the cause of our misery, and there would be no need to come back. But if we are either reaping the misery that we caused, or only looking for the miserable things in the world, then we have to learn to change our ways.
Since we are obviously reincarnations (of course), then it must be bc we’re supposed to suffer for past misdeeds, or to be happier with whatever lot we have this time around, no matter how shitty it may be.
gawd, what a fucking idiot. and what a fucking nightmare his ‘perfect’ divine system is.
