Well, I'll take a shot. It's two fold.
God: The one true God, creator of the universe, and bear with me a second, because this is a definition of what that God would be. This God, is the
force from which everything comes from. It would have to have intelligence and thought, and be uncreatable. In other words, nothing is above it and
nothing created it, it just is, was, and always will be. This, I believe, is the God of the Bible, the Alpha and Omega, and He revealed Himself to us
when He created us. Strictly speaking though, the definition of God, capitol G, is that there is nothing beyond Him. If you don't like the term
Him, well, sorry, you can substitute whatever you want for it, but I will use Him. God has revealed Himself in the Bible to be this definition.
Now god, little g, well, that can be interpreted in many different ways. For this type of god, basically all you need is someone to believe or put
faith in you (or it), even if you are powerless. We are all aware of these gods, the ones of the Romans, Greeks, Celts, whoever. These gods could be
made up on the spot out of a pile of dog crap if someone could get another person to believe in it. Many of them also could have been alien beings
using technology to fool people into believing them. There's a lot of ways a god can be created or appear or be declared. The simplest definition
is does anyone believe in it.
