Greetings Wildflower! For thousands of years the concept that we are "servants of God” has gone toe to toe with the concept that humans “are God-like” with their free will. Both concepts exist, both are real, even if one or the other seems Absurd to you. Generally, it is difficult for a mind to hold two seemingly opposed ideas and still function. This is called cognitive dissonance, and overcoming it - being able to hold two seemingly contradictory ideas in the mind simultaneously - is the test of a first rate intelligence. When the cognitive dissonance (of either an individual or a society) reaches a certain pain threshold, the mind must reach “Peace” in order to survive.
