我不信的神

 

 

 

 

我肯定不会相信这样的神:

只有聪明的人、生活得优厚舒适的人才能认识的神,

禁戒人间欢乐的神,

像掷骰子一般,和人类玩捉迷藏,只能偶尔碰上的神,

要求每次考试一百分的神,

可以被哲学家充分解释的神,

不能了解为何小孩常常把手弄脏的神,

要求人放弃作为一个人,才能来相信祂的神,

曾为赐给人类自由意志而后悔的神,

只对“灵魂”有兴趣,对“人”没兴趣的神,

只有在教会建筑物中才能找到的神,

不肯主动去寻找那弃绝祂的人之神,

对玫瑰的美丽没有感觉的神,

当人类彼此相爱,祂却不在其中的神,

没有奥秘,只和人相等的神,

幸亏我所信的,不是这样的神。

The God I Don’t Believe In

 

 

No, I Shall never believe in:

the God whom only the wise,or the comfortably situated can understand,

the God who flashes a red light against human joys,

the lottery-God whom one can find only by chance,

the God who always demands 100 percent in examinations,

the God who can be fully explained by a philosophy,

the God incapable of understanding that children will always get themselves dirty,

the God who demands that if a man is to believe he must give up being a man,

the God who sometimes regrets having given man free will,

the God who is interested in souls and not in men,

the God whom one can find only in a church,

the God who does not go out to meet him who had abandoned Him,

the God insensitive to the beauty of a rose,

the God who is not present where men love each other,

the God in whom there are no mysteries, who is not greater than we are,

Yes, my God is the other God.

——Juan Arias
