God in a wordPage 9 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
as live in evil? Seems like a strange juxtaposition, but as far as i can see, this god character must be pretty tired if he's following us around like a domestic canine. I don't want to believe that god interferes with some and not others, so I choose to believe that god lets things unfold and reserves judgement, except in our own god-consciousness, which can be very critical and in a constant struggle not to be mixed up with our fear and lust for power. I think the best answers i've seen yet are the classics "love" and "unknowable". The rest seems to me to be a fabricated (and I think it all needs to be so for now, towards personal growth) elaboration which establishes one's values; in this sense Christianity strikes a chord with me, divorced from its hierarchical, political and monetary add-ons: being human, I need to believe in human potential, so fictitious or not, someone who does everything in their power to help that humanity thrive in the context of the greater enviroment (creation if you like) is a description/enactment of god I'll go with. I can't begin to imagine that something as intricate as the living things on our planet and the many systems which maintain them could come to be, evolve and continue to function without some kind of positive baseline force willing it to be-- a spark i'd call godwill, i guess. In any case, one word ain't enough, but you can create worlds with love, and unfortunately, tear them down without it. Lastly, to quote one good book, "to the making of books there is no end": there's too much inspiration here to avoid trying to capture a bit of it in doggerel.!

SCAM.
I have 5 senses (that I'll admit to, at least) to test and experience and decide for myself.

If I'm wrong, I'll repent on my deathbed and beat the system...Like everyone else.

Murder.

It has been said that throughout human history more people have been killed in the name of religion than for any other cause.

It is not a heritage to be proud of when people kill others because of their differing belief in their god.

One word is hard. I'd choose: "Fable" or maybe "Control".

God in a word.

A security blanket for the human psyche.


People who have lost touch with the spiritual aspects of life often feel this way.

God in a word . . . pervasive, so pervasive you might not sense her/him.

If you could sum all that up in a word... what one word would you use for a definition of God?

HE created man in his image...we have the capabilities of what he saw in himself and the ability to know.

This made me think of Helen Reddy, the Australian pop singer famous for her hit song "I Am Woman".

In her acceptance speech for a Grammy award Reddy thanked "God, because She makes everything possible".

You can become seriously confused about God if you interpret the bible to literally or associate God with one religion. My approach to spirituality is eclectic. BTW - I really do not thing God is a man or a woman. It may be easier to think of God as the greater good or type of energy.
