Two Jehovah's witness told me today that they see God as a person, when i asked them this question:
- Is God a person, or is God a infinite dimension?
I drew a dot on a 2-dimensional paper, much like this image. And asked: which is infinite?
-The dot or the black space surrounding the dot?
At this point they didn't understand the question. I had to replace the dot with a person. So i drew up a new image:
With this image, i asked them; who is your God?
And they pointed to the person in the middle of the image.
-Than i asked them: Who is infinite? God or the space surrounding God?
Now they started to see the picture, but would not drift away from their teachings. They told me that they had accepted God as a person, and had made
a personal commitment to believe it.
Then i asked them: Are you people here to make me believe the same thing, when i have shown you that God can not be a person?
-They said yes.
Is this the same faith most Christians have to, that they believe God is a person?
I believe in God, but i don't believe God is a person.
