Who is God to You? By: David Rader II on March 20, 2009 @ 9:05 PM
Who is God to you? Or "what" is God to you?
Is God an all-powerful being? Is God the universe? Is God inside each of us?
After you've pondered on that, how is it that you've come to the conclusion of what God is? Is it from "stories of old?" Which have major credibility due to the fact that they've stood the test of times. Have you come to the conclusion of what God is due to philosophical means? Which has major credibility, because by nature, urns for an unbiased point of view? Or did you experience something phenomenal, such as an epiphany?
Perhaps we will all better understand each other when we understand the causes of our conclusions to accept a certain definition of God.
My accepted definition of God is a very general one. Based on most major religions, God is an all powerful being. God creates and god destroys. God is in all things, and all things are in God. - This to me, would be the same or strikingly similar to the definition of the word "everything." I believe the similiarities are so similar, that in most contexts if not all, the word "everything" can be synonymously replaced with the name "God," especially when "everything" is thought of as the universe, although everything would include more than the universe. I believe this definition of God to be "everything" is difficult to comprehend because most people have a line separating things from being alive and not.
My belief is that the modern distinction between something being alive and not alive is incorrect, which is why I believe that everything should be respected.

God is almighhty authority! No one is powerful than him! You are very right that "God creates and God destroys" And as per my thinking God is bodyless, he is light, a powerful light.

Your definition of god definitely encompasses some of the very widespread ideas of God. Those do happen to be the ones I accept. I wonder what religion you are a part of, if a part of one at all.
This may not be the most appropriate place for it, but I had a comment inspired thought: For the current definition of words and names, we must look to the wisdom of crowds, but for the definitions of words and names of future or past, we must look to scholars, elders, specialists otherwise, or do the research ourselves. Current definitions of words are always altered, controlled, or otherwise decided by the current wisdom of crowds, living crowds that is.
While I appreciate your genuine post here, please refrain from using a name for SEO marketing purposes. I would have deleted your post if I had not feared my conscience of deleting a genuine post. I hope time will not prove that this was a bad decision.

God is a number you can not count to...

That was kind of deep... I'm not a very religeous person usually, but that kind of made me think.

I think most of us believe in the God that we were raised up with. Or we rebel against that view of God and believe in the opposite. I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer about the nature of God. The nature of God is for theology to speculate about…educated guesswork. But does God actually exist? The universe we live in seems finely tuned for the evolution of intelligent life. All the laws of nature are lined up like dominos…all it takes is for one domino/law-of-nature to be out of place and everything would have collapsed and we’d not exist. Is existence a coincidence? I don’t think so.

To me God is my father in heaven.
He created me.
He knows every hair on my head. He knows every fibre of my being.
Does that answer it?
