Well,
The argument wont surely end in a decade as the view about God truely varies from individual and religions

As all is entitled to his/her believe

Just as christians belives that Jesus is the son of God
the islams belives that Jesus ios just a prophet as the main person is Mohamed
Be all you can when you can

Its not, is it beibee, but isn't that just about the best that people have, their beliefs? Its not as if many have actually met the Thing called God and can say, it is so and so.

Best yo will get is what God is like, its nature, or essence so to speak.

Good question.

The nearest answer to that question is to be found in the assumption that "MAN", in his early evolution at one given moment was confronted with phenomena he could observe but not explain and concluded that there might be some form of a "supreme being".  Let us date that back to the era that humanoids began to make inscriptions and drawings on stone, in caverns etc.

At the same time, some leading humanoids must have recognized the fact that they could manipulate their fellow primitive "men" by making them believe that they could, for instance, communicate with the gods.  Some simple "magic" tricks would have been good enough in those days.

Why did this work ? Simple.  From the moment that "MAN" begun to think about himself and asked himself questions about the reason of his existence and the miserable conditions he lived it, the only way to accept his condition was the belief in a "GOD", in a purpose.  Even now, it is difficult to accept that there is NO purpose in life, that there are NO gods, no hell, no heaven, no "afterlife".

Life on this planet, as we know it, is the product of sheer coincidence.  Nothing else.  Evolution from basic amino-acid combinations to cells, to whatever we see now.   You are born, you can procreate, then you die.  End of story.

Religions, now more than ever, are political concepts which are used to "guide" the behaviour of certain groups, commanded by those who are in charge.  Pure manipulation.  "Belief" is the KEY word.  If someone BELIEVES, that person loses all touch with reality and becomes a puppet in the hands of a few "leaders". 

It works.  Jews kill muslims, muslims kill whatever that moves, others kill others.  Make an idiot believe that if he blows himself up in the middle of a crowd, he will be rewarded with eternal life and submissive young whores and you have a highly effective weapon.  BOOM.  1 idiot less to care for and some enemies dead.  All they wanted.  Cheap too.

All you have to do is make idiots BELIEVE.  In anything, as long as they will serve your purpose.

In the end it is all about GREED and POWER over others.  And this will go on as long as "leaders" will find morons to die for money in the pocket of their "leaders". 
Leaders do not need to worry.  NEVER one of their warriors has come back to complain that he was tricked.

LMFAO.  There is a mugu born every minute.

JUST THINK !

PS: example: type "Jesus hoax" in Google.  Read and follow links.  Do not believe anything, just THINK !

can succumb...if 'he' will ever succumb...

but all this i don't know but i believe ain't gonna
help some folks!

I simply believe that it is wind.
I simply believe that I shall succeed without having gotten there yet.
I simply believe that I have much potential to give to the world.
And, beibee, that is not what I have been taught, but what I told myself.

I do not wait around for others to confirm my greatness.
But I simply believe within myself that I shall achieve greatness.
Now greatness means different things to differnet people,
and I can only say what it means to me.

What Greatness Means to Me:

To live holy and righteously before God, so that when I take my last breath
I shall be with God.

To know that I have attained and accomplished all that I was suppose to do
while here on earth.

To love and be loved.
To understand others and be understood.
To know that I have a purpose for living--even if someone should think not.
To meet my personal and financial goals that propels me ahead.

When I feel a breeze across my face . . .and I cannot see from were it comes . or were it goes . . . .I know there is a God!
I do not have to be told that . . .I feel that in my soul . .deep down within . .as I awe at the beauty and the wonder of creation and life .  I know there is a God.

Before I could read one word in the bible, my soul longed to know who God is . . . . . . .and why he loved me so to create me.

Beibee, I know . and those reasons listed above, which may sound extremely insignificant to others and pompous to some give me immense peace and comfort inside and out. If I should die . .I feel as though I will go to my God from where I came from, and for me that is enough to acknowledge him, live for him, serve him, and repent when I fail over-and-over again.

For me, Beibee, it is enough.  I have the potential to be great, for God is first great and helps me as I go.  How do I know there is a God, I know what he has done with me, for me, and through me when I felt my life was insignificant, and I could not go on without his help.  I long to do better and be better, and I believe God draws me and calls me to be the best (the greatest) I can be in him.


I don't have to see him to believe him and know that he exists.  I simply believe with unspeakable joy at times, and that is my faith in God.

very touching...pmdaboh.

you spoke so passionately and personally
about your "God".

everything in today's world has become
personalized; little wonder humanity's so so
fragmented.

well...everyone's got a right to his or her
beliefs; religious or otherwise...

what i just want here is for us as much as
possible to eloquently explain our version of
"God"...

it helps a lot for us to know where each one
of us is coming from and with what leaning.

i think the purpose here's not to pooh-pooh
what others believe but to give your own version
of the issue.

thank you.

Thanks, Beibee.  After I wrote it, I was a little surprised how moved I was to explain it to that degree. 

Have a blessed day!

Quote from: britelife
Bible says God is a spirit.

Yes!!! Got it.

God is a spirit being.


We all know the answer but we keep swazing it.
I laughed when I read what you wrote britelife, first noticing the you, and then the spirit that is within you take over. If anything, its one to say, it is Spirit of God.

Many attempts have been made to define God for sure. Why we are not content with the truest answer as you have given above always has amazed me though. I reckon it is our human inadequacy to accept the things that we do not see concretely before us, I mean, what the hell is a spirit, we often ask, or don't, as the case most often is.

I will say though that if we really do want to know God, we should ask that exact question, "If God is a Spirit, then what is a Spirit?"

You will forgive me for not having a better answer than that which you have surely already given, you spirit indwelt brightlight.


I shall add one thing though. Be thee Pagan or Muslim or Christian, God is God. It is the individual who thinks different.

Is just a fact that no one can change.
If you noticed, every other gods always
made mention His name in different languages
for the final say both the Pegan and the others.

Important part, He said, I am thy I am,
the creator of heaven & hell. He give life to
whom so ever  He chooses & He takes back
whenever He wants.

To His love we live...by His grace we sustain....
