If you are a deeply religious man or woman, deeply rooted in the traditions of a religious doctrine you grew up with and, over the years, grew comfortable with, comfortable enough to pass on to your children, then you might. If you are already a deeply spiritual person, and you pray a lot to whatever deity is closest to your heart, then, in all probability, you believe in divine intervention. But for a majority of what can only be termed your secular readers, divine intervention is nothing more than a myth.
It is nothing more than a false fallacy, preached to win and influence the hearts and minds for ulterior motives. It is true, in a sense, that many secular-minded people have become quite cynical in their old age, rather than rich in wisdom. To introduce such folks to the Gospels, the sayings of the Prophet, the Wisdom of Solomon, Wicca, the divine Buddha, all the gods that fall under the umbrella of the Hindu religion, and so forth, becomes a case of, don’t you dare for many a secular reader.
Perhaps the alternative is to introduce them to a code of divine ethics, in the sincere hope (and faith) that readers will not be scared off by the very mention of the word. Divinity is, admittedly, an age-old tradition, built up over thousands of years. It could be said that it has its roots in the firm belief that there is certainly a higher power out there. This world you may live in may appear small to you these days. But just remember that the vast universe in which it travels through is a lot bigger than you could ever imagine.
And here’s a thought. Those who say they believe only in themselves are, in fact, believers already.
