Is it energy ,an entity that can create. Did he breath life in my nostrils when i was born? Some think he is an old man. Some think he is dressed in amazing colors .Moses hid in a cleft of rock so he could see the glory of God and he would not die .Is he a loving father, with a host of angels with him .Or is there really a God ? what do you really logical brilliant people think?

God is man's response to the unknown.

God is something that the mind or men created to implant in the mind, to answer all the unanswerable questions.

It is a truly clever concept to be fair.


Also, God is a very personal thing and , IMO, is totally separate from religion.

Until God answers that we will never know. Well that is if God really exists. But according to the bible this supernatural creator has always there and always will be. So the first question asked show be this. How can something not have a beginning? I don't think that's possible. So if God does exist it can't be a source of energy, for energy has to have a point of origin. I lean towards the story being a fairy tell passed on from civilization to civilization with the name changing the root of the story the same.

Unless we know otherwise, i believe that to be true yes.

I'm not here to argue whether or not he exists (not saying you want to, but religious topics become heated very quickly
) but just stating my own views.

I think if it didn't happen a few thousand years ago...it would have happened a few hundred years ago, or a few decades ago.
it is a concept that, it seems, human beings need and feed off quite intensively.

The point is, we don't know... literally nobody knows... they can only give their own views...

and as my signature says.... "All credibility, all good conscience, all evidence of truth come only from the senses." Friedrich Nietzsche

good luck with your search

worlds is he in, or did he throw seeds in the vast universe and see what

grows. Like throwing Grass seed on a lawn some grows some don't . does

he come from another dimension?

Ma bey there our other worlds and he gives a different Bible . Our world

God is the Living Hosts. In other words, all living beings comprise God. This is why you are to treat one another as yourself.

God really isn't appropriate, because it is saying Gad....which means "fortune/Good luck"

WE is his name. He starts off many documents with it, like "We the people..."

Peace

What is God?
Baby don't hurt me,
Don't hurt me, no more!



Hahahah...personally for me?

God is that warm protecting feeling that I only notice when I look for it, but it seems it is always there, at the back of my mind.

God is the awesome feeling I get when I know I am doing the right thing, and I wish I could go on doing it forever.

God is the 'woah!' I get when I think in any amount of detail about anything I see or hear in the environment around me (stars, animals, geology).

That cheesy enough for you?

First, you are the bible, not a book but you are the scroll of life. The bible is a doctrine of man and is good for reproof, but not for living by. If it were so, you would of been birthed with one.

I would suggest creating a checklist that you yourself can check off of "true and False". When I say a list that you can check off, I mean things you can actually account for. (not space, invisible beings or any other fantasy material), but actual true things.

ie.
1. Sky is over my head....True
2. I am made of Chocolate....untrue
3. If God is true, then only true things confirm him....true
4. Jesus the Idol, is an Idol who is not real....(confirmed in the 5 senses)...true
5. Jesus's name, which he taught in means "self existent salvation"....True
6. If I am to be saved, I must generate life for "self existent salvation"...True

Just some examples, but you know

anyway

Peace

What is God? My answer is in order to be something it must exist. God is make believe like the Tooth Fairy and Santa. Where did your idea of God being from another dimension come from?

Heheh...no, you are right. The thread title just reminded me of the song. Maybe it fits? Maybe I'm just acting odd today. It is almost dawn, and I'm still up.

Yes sorry about that.

Most faiths believe God to be true, whatever they call him.
The only problem is that they then turn right around and forgo truth.

For example:
Jesus says, "I am the way, the truth and the life"

Is this truth? To some no and to others yes, but it is indeed true and here is why. Jesus means "self existent salvation". In other words, ain't no one saving me, but me that is, the spirit in me and in everyone.

No one has a measuring stick that they can judge properly with because most religions believe in fantasy (raptures, supernatural events) but call it truth, but it is not truth.

Truth is more of a given, like "the sky is blue right now". I need no outside witness to confirm truth. It is inherent. Same with God. If we would see the truth, it would set us free. Problem is people want to argue beliefs over things they have never seen. How can they call true, what is not true?

You know what truth is and that is the only "meter" you need...."let the others search the scriptures, in them they believe they have eternal life" since the beginning it is not so. Man and Woman regenerate and this is true salvation. I can show you God, I'm talking with him/her (you) right now. You can answer him (me) right now. No one is him, because all of the living is him/her/himher?

Peace

Fair enough.

I think you have a good outlook and look at religious scriptures in the "right" way.

I understand what you are saying now and although i don't agree...i still respect your opinion and "get" what you're talking about.
Thanks for taking the time to explain


Peace

God is actually microscopic life-forms that reside within the cells of all living things. God composes a collective consciousness and intelligence, forming links between everything living. God is a binding, metaphysical and ubiquitous power. God is an energy field created by all living things, that surrounds and penetrates living beings and binds the galaxy together.

Wait a sec... That doesn't sound right... Oh! That's the Force and midichlorians! My bad. Just kidding by the way.

Appearently, from teachings in all religions with their own form of god, it's a higher power that created all and is the power that makes life what it is. It's different per religion, but I'm not going to go in to that. It's too much time. If anything use the awesome tools of the information super highway like google and wikipedia.

It must exist...couldn't of said it any better.

My friend may not believe in the name of God, but he surly knows him and besides, he likes what thehunted goes by for a name better anyway.

Peace friend and thank you for your service

There has always been good and evil in this world. Like it or not. You could simply add the letter G to the first word or D before the second. I took lots of Biology and Chemistry. Life form is too complex to happen by chance. I was also glad to hear that all my teachers also believed, that if there is a creation there is a creator. These guys also taught evolution!, yet believed in God. One will never know the answer with a closed mind. It sounds that yours is opened. Good luck in your quest for truth. It's not far off.

Thank you friend.

To be honest, I got so tired of religious twists and interpretations and in the back of my mind I always knew that God was right here "with me". Seems kinda pointless otherwise.

Jesus's "the truth will set you free" hit me one day out of know where as the sure fire test of what is real and what isn't.

I've never seen anyone raised from the dead, even if it did happen, I wasn't witness to it, but I have seen life come through the narrow passage of the hips...everyone has...that is true life. Until the other one happens, I'm not resposible for saying something is true, that I didn't witness. That would actually make me a liar. Anyway, It all came together when I started reading the Greek and Hebrew of the old and new testament.

If any English reader did this, being of faith, it would destroy every fantasy they had because they would see that the names, every name, in the bible has a meaning to it that fills in the context of the passage.

For example:
Jordan.....he was baptized in the Jorden.....ok

Jordan has a meaning and is not just a name. Jordan means "Descender", so now you are baptized in the descender or descendant.

The verse just went from a ambiguous named river to actually meaning something, while confirming how it has been since the beginning of the world...truth

It is like that for EVERY word in the bible, not only the names. Read the original penned languages, find the truth....which is not hocus pocus healing and magic, but reality of waiting on people menially and serving their illness to remission.

Anyway, thank you for your kind words.
Truth and Life be to you...

Peace

an intriguing inquiry......

ultimately God is who we, as individuals, make Him to be.......each of us have a preconceived notion as to who He is, or is not, which has been tempered, or tampered?, by the notions of others..........

He is proclaimed by many in many differing forms, ideas, rules, law, doctrine, and all else that comprises religion, which is man's attempt to proclaim Him as he sees fit.......

..........Even those who proclaim He is not will turn to Him at least once in their lives.....it's our nature which might also provide an answer to your question -

He simply "Is"
