God is creator of all. The end.


Did God create evil or is evil a byproduct of freewill?

God did not create evil. Evil is part of Him. Since everything is part of Him.
Let us think about it:
What is good and evil? (let elimimate all aspects of judging)
They are just opposites. Everything must exist in balance. Yin and Yan. Yin has some yan and Yan has some yin.
God is not good nor evil, He is just.
Now we have a duality, but the balance needs to be stir up sometimes in order for things to move. Because if there is no movement everything will cease.
A seesaw game, so who is the axis that make possible movement? There is a third person implied.

God is so powerful and bright that He reflects on His own light, therefore Sophia comes to exist and the duality start right there. They are 2 and 1 at the same time. But for the rest of the things to be created something else has to appear. That is where the Son is born, from the union of God and Sophia. The Trinity has been established.

One is from two and three is from one.

God is seeing his own light.
The light is here now - it is just a show of light.

It is like a self aware tv screen.

God is one without a second.

That would be your opinion, your opinion, not a fact

God revealed himself to the world as Jesus, take that or leave it, that is what I believe

God is love, His justice is an extension of that love

No. God is not His creation.

The belief in more than one is conflict.
What is IS. How is that incorrect?

God is seeing.
No appearance can appear without the seeing of it.
Seeing/appearance is one.

Again. Creation is not God.

I am not God and neither are you. We may interact with God on the spiritual level, but we are no Him. God may manifest Himself in various ways to us, but the Creation is not Him.

There is no me and there is no you - there is only what there is.
Nothing is divided - there is nothing separately doing anything - all is done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

i have another way of defining the christian " god "

the jews second hand imaginary freind .

though - if you actually read the OT - one has to wonder - why anyone would pick JEHOVA to be thier own imaginary freind

A better way. Completely fictional character, see Mickey Mouse.

I think you misunderstood me.
God is love of course. Nobody is denying that. He is everything you think and me think he is.
He is All. The creator of everything. That mean that everything is within Him. Taking away any attribute from Him is taking away His status of God.

1 Samuel 15:2-3
Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘I have noted what Amalek did to Israel in opposing them on the way when they came up out of Egypt. Now go and strike Amalek and devote to destruction all that they have. Do not spare them, but kill both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’”

That sounds like a lot of love. God can do harm and good too. Do not take anything away from God. He is almighty. He is just.

Yes there can be no question that God is someone to be feared and His judgement is yet to be fully realised. The future looks bleak for some come judgement day
I suspect many would like to see the total anhialation of ISIS, would that be good or bad I wonder...

We may never know. Maybe we are the bad guys, who knows.

Giving human attributes and motivations to a transtemporal supernatural superbeing seems as ill-advised as trying to project human motivations onto aliens. It just illustrates the failings of our imaginations and our inability to step outside our own thought processes.

Nobody is claiming a detailed similarity between the Creator God and the human species.
But, as I've said before, the ability to communicate implies self-consciousness, and the ability to make conscious decisions. That is the main point of similarity, and I believe that is what is meant when the text says "made in the image of God".
The ability to communicate is demonstrated by the Biblical evidence that communication has been taking place.

You can't get "without concern for consequences" directly out of "he creates and communicates", which is the definition we're looking at.
Objectively speaking, one who can bring you and me and the rest of the universe into existence IS pretty important, and can hardly be blamed for thinking so. The only objection to the idea comes from our own sense of self-importance, doesn't it?
I have looked at Job; The Job debate; Judging the judge



so you are perfectly okay with a narcissistic self important agency taking away homes and poisoning crops and slaughtering families and infecting innocent people with diseases, because of a simple bet? this is what you call being responsible and benevolent? "he creates and communicates" seems to fall somewhat short in terms of "defining" such a being.
