This poem is NOT anti-God. It does not demean God at all. That Emily
calls God jealous is to proclaim a symptom of our own choice of
disobedience in the garden. By eating from the tree of knowledge, we
gained knowledge of ourselves and, as a result, fell in love with US rather
than God. God created us for HIS playthings (Plato), and Emily comments,
as if she can see God's heart, of his disappointment in our choice to
ignore him. God is still great in this poem! Annie

If you loose someone that you love, you just fell that God is jealous...

God is a jealous God it says so in the Bible. Exodus 34:14 Do not worship
any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.

well i didn't like this poem because i don't think that god is a jealous
gos because he gave his life for us sinners and she says that he is jealous
i think that it is wrong

I KNOW that my God is NOT a jealous God.. He takes pride in his creations
and IS NOT jealous of them in any way.. Because he made us in his image..
There is NOTHNG for him to envy.

i think that this poem means that people see god as a jealous god because
sometimes when people do good in life and have it all accomplished they end
up passing away.
