God is The Energy/Vibration/Frequency/Spirit of Joy within us, which is our True Nature, our High Self, and The Source from which all came and will return and do return to in moments of Joy.
God is not a man in the sky but is The Heart/Core of The Spirit/Mind.
I am not deceived to believe God is some man in the sky separate from me.
I don't care much for these threads that attack religion or people's conceptions of God. It is a personal matter and many people need religion as a stepping stone to their next step. We do not have the right to interfere with the spiritual growth of another nor should we interfere with their chosen path.
The idea of some ancient, X billions of years old man, who sat at a work bench making planets, stars, suns and tossing them into the air insults people's intelligence and patronises them. The religious never want to discuss why their ancient old man designed therapsids, dinosaurs etc etc before he looked into the mirror and decided to make man - in his own image of course.
If God is outside of the universe, space and time, then he is not a personal God but one who made the universe then left it to its devices. If you believe God intervenes on our behalf then he must be a part of this universe in some way.
God is beyond any gender label. God is like the golden ratio, he is the sum of the male/female but neither of them at the same time. If that makes sense.
