There isnt anything god wrote or sent to teach i suppose. because you cant believe in anything unless you experience them. god has a very positivistic mind and wouldnt want you to believe in anything just like that. God liked communication thats why all the books and prophets.

Yes, the Bible is all about communication. I included it in my definition of the Biblical God, that he is one who communicates.
Some of the communication is direct, but a lot of it is indirect; that is, we read what other people have recorded instead of hearing it with our own ears.

So what should the ideal gods traits be like
What and also why should any god act in this way according to your opinion



Honesty. Before anything else.

If there is a god, it would not be wanting us to believe in it in blind faith, it would make itself known.

I dont believe my God is omniscient and I am fine with that, it started me thinking


Do you mind if I ask you what led you to believe that?

The Judeo Christian God operates from love and justice


The OT is full of contradictions where there are 2 distinct gods. The Lord, and Jehova ( better known as the demiurge ).

The greatest confidence trick was the Old Roman Empire transforming itself into the Christian Empire.

Omniscient means 'all knowing'.
What is knowing that there are words appearing right now?

Omniscient means 'having awareness'...'perceiving all things'.

Look to see what is seeing. ....only through 'me' you will come to the father.

Saint Francis said 'We are looking for what is looking'.

These two traits are in my opinion Gods identity or at least how He likes Himself portrayed as


God does not operate from love and justice......God is love and God is just what is (just is/justice).
What is arising right now is unconditional.......it arises without anyone's consent and it just IS.

There is a saying that "the Lord works in mysterious ways". Sometimes what you think maybe is a misfortune is really a blessing in the long run.

A few examples would be:

You find out that your spouse is cheating on you- good to know now you can avoid STD's especially HIV/AIDS and hepatitis.

That annoying person at the grocery store that delayed you 5 min from your agenda, just saved your life from a deadly car crash that would have happened if you left 5 minutes prior.

You gave up your seat on a airplane flight only to learn the plane went down and there were no survivors.

There is nothing more that I want from God, I trust in him.






all those kids that god gave bone cancer? That will prob lead to shorter lines in the grocery and less traffic on the roads. Thanks god and your mysterious ways........

Why is it assumed that life is better than death?
If there is a belief in God; most people believe they get to be with him after death....so why be angry if children die?

The God or the heavens sense of humor, without sinking into anger or temptations due to being a frigid mortal.

Patience never mind some direct form of interaction with your creation would seem to be required.

Adoration. praise, and worship, not so much.

End of the day, all Gods seem to want our monies, which seems rather suspect imho.

God has nothing to interact with..................God is being all that is.

Are you God Itisnowagain?

Nope.


Then how do you know what the big fellow has to interact with?

God is quite possibly a very Human construct, which is not to say we wont build our own quite soon, should we keep heading in the direction we are going.
