    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...

    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.

    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...

    God

    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.

    God is A Mathematician

    There are two parts of God: God the Mind and God the Body. God the Mind can be represented mathematically by zero and infinity--the God Mind consists of infinite legions of zero. Want to create something from zero to see what is being said? Well, next time you begin to draw...

    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? 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...

    I try not to define "God" too strictly

    for various reasons. Firstly, by trying to constrain something that is likely so far beyond the grasp of the human brain to comprehend into a tidy, personalized, dictionary-sized entry actually fails to capture what "God" actually may or may not be and the more definition one...
