At the behest of sid, I finally read 'Paradise Lost'.
It's probably the first time Ive read a poem which hasnt been prescribed in a syllabus..

His critical interpretation of god's actions lead me to an interesting question...

If absolute power corrupts... so how can we be sure that god is pure?
Infact, come to think of it, how would we even define pure?

Would he be pure if all his decisions were altruistic in nature?
Would he be pure if he followed a certain code of pre-established ethics?

What if we characterize something as pure only if it is in line with god's will? Is that the answer?

But If GOD created us, wouldn't view of Pure, Right and Truth be what he wanted it to be??

Why is it that we want everything to have the Absolute value?

If GOD is the ultimate creator then it is his will that he would want to excercise. We can talk all about truth, Justice and the american way and still it would not matter, right.

There is no one way of looking at things.
