whose boredom does god want to alleviate it here? <-----Question from original thread title added to post by moderator (Florentia52)----->

Martin said this words to retired church Nun Philomena who once had sex with stranger.

It's just, why would God bestow upon us a sexual desire that he then wants us to resist? Is it some weird game he's invented to alleviate the boredom of being omnipotent? It baffles me.

    Hello Ganesh Ujwal
    Are you asking who, according to the speaker, might be bored by being omnipotent? The answer is "God".

    There is a Hindu view of the creation of the universe that says God was so bored at being omniscient and omnipotent that He decided to play hide-and-seek with himself. So He divided himself into different creatures and left them free to find Him.
