WHO IS GOD?
« on: February 16, 2008, 08:46:23 AM »
"GOD is the name commonly given to the ultimate source and power of the universe and the subject of religious devotion," says The Encyclopedia Americana. A dictionary defines the term "God" as "the supreme or ultimate reality." What is the nature of such an awesome reality?
Is God an impersonal force or a real person? Does he have a name? Is he a triune entity, a Trinity, as many believe?
An Impersonal Force or a Real Person?
Many who believe in God think of him as a force, not as a person. In certain cultures, for example, gods have been identified with the forces of nature. Some who have examined evidence gathered through scientific research into the structure of the universe and the nature of life on earth have concluded that there has to be a First Cause. Nevertheless, they hesitate to attach a personality to this Cause.

Who do you think God is?

God is not a person and He is One not three...
He is the ever-living,the self-sustainig,allknowing.to Him belongs whatever is on heaven and earth,His knowledge extends over he heavens and earth.(as the Qur'an says).
He begets not nor is he begotten  (which means he has no son).his name is Allah in arabic,Allaha in aramaic(the language of jesus)...and He has many other names.

When you look at what we called the God Head
God Head comprises of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
God's word teaches that the God Head consist of these three seperate, distinct and recognizable personalities and qualities, perfectly united in one.
The Trinity are different persons in the GodHead not merely three name for person.
Read Matthew 3:16,17; 2 Corinthians 13:14; matthew 28:19,20
God is the creator of the universe Read Genesis Chapter 1 to chapter 3

The different is in how you type it, but to those who believe in the God they serve, their God is God.

three-persons-in-one God (the God who created the universe) also called the Trinity. Trinity means three thing in one.
That's how God is.
It has no relationship with the babylonian gods.
