Does God own the Universe?: 5/24/2020 04:15:37

Assuming God exists, should he pay rent?

If I claim the moon legally mine, what gives me the right to charge rent for the future tenants of the moon?
What gives some old guy the right to own land in the first place?

God owns the Universe and therefore is everywhere, but for some reason allows people to make money off of his land?

Is land also leased in heaven? Does God lease it? or, Does he allow people to lease it for him?
And if no leasing occurs then why does he allow it on Earth?

Oh... yeah, I forgot. God works in mysterious ways. I'm such a dummy.

I'm aware I'm responding to clickbait, but here's my answer:

Assuming God exists, no. He created the universe, which means He can do what He likes with it. He chose to give it to us, to steward and look after.
And no, there is no leasing in heaven. 😉

Who exactly told you God gave the land to us?
What if it's a sin to lease land unless God specifically gives you permission?

If there's no leasing in heaven then that means land is free, which means there's no private property.

@Cacao man

I like where this is going. Wondering what you're gonna come up with next. Well, keep up the good work. That's all.

Funnily enough, I agree - God probably didn't intend for private property to be a thing. I think He wished that everyone would share the land He gave them peacefully; however, I would say it was human sin (and the greed and selfishness that came with it) that resulted in the concept of private property.

if god exists i don't think he believes in private ownership.
also, occupying earth or moon or earning money is nothing on a universe scale

Private property is fairly new in the scope of human existence. For most of history, ignoring days of being nomadic, land was allowed to be settled by the king who through divine will was the ruler over that portion of land.

Does this mean that heaven is Communist?
