Efm, if my philosophy sounds Eastern it's because I spent a year in India studying yoga and meditation in ashrams. I also have great respect for the red road and the teachings of indigenous peoples. God is not just for people who identify with Christ... as Rumi said, there are many rivers and one Ocean.
I have no quarrel with Eastern philosophies - a statue of the Buddha shares my home, as do collections of Rumi's poems. It's uncommon to see strains of reincarnation theory surfacing in this kind of context.
We all have a choice. I do not believe that God is 'abandoning' us but in fact is intimately involved in all we do. Even so, like an incredible parent, we are given the ability to make mistakes and to trespass on ourselves and others.
The non-involvement you attribute to a god's great parenting could as easily be attributed to a capricious god, a lazy god, an uncaring god, or to the non-existence of god. They are functionally the same. This "intimately involved" god you speak of doesn't square with the reality of the non-involved and invisible god.
Why do you come here efm? What's your choice?
My choice is to look at this domain critically and to acknowledge that how I live my life is wholly uninfluenced by whether or what kind of gods exist. It just doesn't signify.
My life is, however, influenced by how the followers of gods choose to act.
You asked why I come here, and I'm going to assume you mean MS, so my answer is to work on my recovery. A significant part of that recovery is dealing with religious abuse, hypocrisy, and betrayal.
