    Indeed..
    "What is the reward of goodness except goodness?"
    "If you take one step towards God, He will take two towards you. If you come to Him walking, He will come to you running."

    muhammad_isa's question about gods was a trick question, making the division between polytheism and monotheism. I'm a dualist.

    Indeed it is (I was a collier for around eight years); and, in an active mine, it's a 'living' darkness; one that caresses the skin as it moves; bearing the sounds, and the smells, of the mine itself. An amazing experience.

    In religion, dualism means the belief in two supreme opposed powers or gods, or sets of divine or demonic beings, that caused the world to exist.

    OK .. I'm not trying to trick anybody. I only asked. :)

    My idea of monotheism is that there is only One true God .. only One true power.
    One might see suffering as cruel [ I know I often do ] .. but what is pain?
    It exists as a warning to us that something is wrong .. no?

    Furthermore, we shouldn't confuse the oppression from other humans with God.

    The reward is a happy society of which we are a part, God or no God.
