Let me elaborate. Jesus said I and the Father are one. He prayed, he wept. He ate, he drank, he walked, he did all those things.

As do we all! We all do that!!


He is also the Father.
As so we are all.....


So he was praying to a part of Himself.



He was no different from you or me. He was just vocal about it....
you are every bit as much a 'son' or 'daughter' of "God" as he ever was.

OK, I can agree with you about this.

What is your agenda here?

You asked "Does God pray?" in the OP.

You have received answers. You only want to hear from self-described Christians? Okay then.

Calm down, did I not just agree with you about something?

Not to mention said was wide open to any answer and only preferred to hear it from a Christian.

Twisty Mcnisty over here.

Although if I did hypothetically have an agenda it began when you showed up, and my agenda was to to dispute you because I didn't agree with you.

It is kind of what is typically done here.

And when I did agree, I said so.

The big "Agenda" Boogeyman is of your making.

No. God is not a person who behaves in human ways.



That's not what God says.

What the scriptures say is,



So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; -- KJV, Genesis 1:27


God is like man, since man is created by him to be like him.

If man prays, God prays.

How do you know?

what the scriptures say??? There are lots of "scriptures"....and "The Bible" is not "God" talking. Or writing. It is what some men thought would be good to write down.
It is not "God" saying anything.

I just want to answer my own question from the perspective of a Christian theologian which does require the suspension of my actual beliefs, nevertheless.

Yes, God the Father does pray, to his children who are pure in heart and ready to receive his Wisdom, which will happen through prayer and revelation from the Spirit of Truth Who is Wisdom.

No one has ever done those things except for in mythology --- in fan-fiction. "The Bible" is not 'history' and it is not "journalism."

It is mythology. LOL! It is the absolute apex of "fake news" ---- !!!!

Well freaking put. I would be jealous for not saying it myself were I like that, I am grateful for the nugget of truth rather.

erm...no.

So - you are a "Christian theologian" --- which means that you discard any other ideas - especially those which disagree with your own! That explains your antipathy, then.

All he said was God is a Spirit who made spirits.

That is in the Bible, not fan fiction but the sacred scripture of billions of people.

The Bible is fiction -- it is mythology. When you accept that truth (and not one moment sooner!) you will soar to new heights of awareness and (dare I say!) salvation.

The Bible is a sham. It is fan-fiction. It is a man-made anthology of man-made ideas. To believe it is to be brainwashed.

I call it being able to put myself in someone else's frame of mind and think like an Orthodox theologian. They are not Prophets, but that is what I would say IF I were a Christian or Christian theologian.

Spending less time criticizing me personally for being willing to put myself in another's shoes would be a good idea.

Everyone knows the Bible isn't meant to be literally interpreted, or they don't.

I do. I can extract wisdom from it and inspiration and it's historicity is no issue whatsoever.

Thanks for getting mad enough to insult every Christian but I am not one.
