Where is God?
The question first of all is far more a paradox than asking a
masked man who he is.
Am I Gods keeper?
Or do you just sit in judgement of God, because this doesn't
I wonder where this loving God is that the bible speaks of.
That's right I said it.
But I will say this about the question.
The universe itself, has far to many places that I will
never see for me to proclaim in my arrogance, God does
not exist. Or for that matter that, God is not here or,
that's where he is. People right here in this thread say things
like, belief in God is insanity. But don't understand the insanity
of thinking they can know he doesn't. Let alone how insane they
look saying it as if they know. But for me to decide all willy nilly
if God exists and where he might be? First thing I'd look for is some
kind of communiction from him. Hey, whadda ya know? There is
something in this world that fits that description.
You either believe in him or you don't, but either way, you have no
right to judge him.
I read things like this, and the more I read, the more I wonder where this loving God is that the bible speaks of.

God is within you dwelling as you and is the real you. Some call our souls god, others the mind or counsiousness, I say all of the above.
Your brother is real, but if you don't know/understand god, what exactly are you keeping?

you cannot define god but you can't exist for a second without encountering god because god is. He is everything and is everywhere and is always there. Omnipotent Omnicient Omnipresent--those qualities (remember, from english class? lol or is that just me)
The force. The one power. Life. Energy. Literally the very particles that are the foundation of the universe, our reality, and all potential realities, simultaneously in the past present and future. God exists outside of time and in essence is time as well. We are made in god's image and therefore have that essence within us, allowing us to create and imagine. It's pretty trippy stuff 8-) haha
oh and as to the whole suffering thing: read Paradise Lost by John Milton to find your answer:
Because god is good, everything he does is good. Therefore, all evil ever serves to do is bring about an even greater good.
What is suffering? Who defines suffering as bad? Doesn't suffering help people grow into better people who do great thing that benefit mankind?
Isn't it then down to perspective? Suffering is only suffering if you see it as such...off topic much?
