Many of the stories written by Greek authors fill the mind with questions that parallel those asked by Christian minds throughout the world Does God or the Greek gods predestine what will happen in a persons life Many Christians in the world believe that this is the case and it is obvious that the ancient Greeks had these types of beliefs The idea that the Christian God has it in for a person is flawed The idea that separate gods get angry with different people and then try to get back at them for however they were wrongs is anti-Christian and draws the line between God and the Greek gods The main problem with Greek gods is that they are not all powerful They are also not very intelligent It is a little like the super spy movies of the nineteen sixties where the evil Soviet spy put the good American or British agent into a device that was meant to kill him True these devices were effective killers if they took three seconds perform their task unfortunately for the evil Russian their device always allowed plenty of time for the good spy to escape and foil the Russians plans for world domination In a way that is how the gods are If Poseidon was so powerful and really wanted to kill Odysseus why didnt he just talk Zeus into frying Odysseus with a lightning bolt Either Poseidon had no desire to kill Odysseus or he simply did not have the power to do that Greek gods do not know how a persons life will turn out In the Odyssey after Odysseus ruins Cyclops eye Cyclops prays to his father Poseidon and says Hear me Poseidon Girdler of Earth god of the sable locks If I am yours indeed and you accept me as your son grant that Odysseus who styles himself Sacker of Cities and son of Laertes may never reach his home in
