I Define "God" Differently

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 210 People

    I Just Wish

    More folks understood that God is different to everyone.  That relationship is based on the person who shares it with God - and really is no business of anyone elses, but that person and God.

    God...is?

    WE CAN BE GOD. Already, some of us call ourselves or our friends 'gods', and they are in their own right. Like, 'sports god' or 'math god'. Anyone who can think for the greater good, and still have the mindset that the concerns of the commoners do not lose out to the needs of a...

    God = Santa Claus He sees you when you're sleeping; He knows when you're awake He knows if you've been bad or goodSo be good, for goodness sake Except, instead of the threat of coal; it's the threat of roasting over them. ^_^ Amen

    How Do I Discribe The Shape Of The Wind?

    O do not know> I know that I don't think of God as a cosmic Santa Clause waiting to drop our dream house on us.  And I don't think he went to the trouble of creating us just to give us religions no one in his right mind would follow.  I don't believe God is a petulant child...

    I Define God this way

    I was raised a Christian.  I believed God was up there somewhere in Heaven.  I began questioning.  I had a personal life changing experience which led to the rethinking about what "God" is in the first place.  First, "God" cannot...

    This Is How I Look At It

     I see god as this supreme being that is more then names and faces and shapes. But is here and made us to help us learn and grow. I don't believe the bible is truth and I don't follow it, but I do like Jesus's teachings. A non christian can be very christian sometimes. To me god...

    God? God Who?

    What exactly is a god? Simple, someone who has transcended all levels of human proportions to the state of divinity and all that crap. Someone who could do something none of us can. In layman terms, THE GUY'S A SERIOUSLY STRONG DUDE. But guess what? We're strong too. We can...

    Is no more than the sum total of all the physical laws controlling the universe as a whole,to believe in a God  who is solely concerned with saving humanity,is to delude one self.
