    According to God is what we see and the people we interact with.

      GOD


      Who is god?
      He, she and it is god. God is, has, was, will.

      Where is god?
      Everywhere is god, nowhere is god.

      What sort of a thing is god?
      Everything is god.
      God is love, god is the light.

      When does god come?
      When the madness stops, when death becomes.

      How do I see god?
      With your eyes closed and with your eyes open.

      What have I to do with god?
      You are his creation, you are a part of him.

      When do I see, meet god?
      Whenever you really decide to,
      When you want nothing.

      Well, the question was "What is God according to you?" and I have shared what I feel. It's all about feelings. I can neither give you a link nor can I show you any chat. I believe God is a supreme power. each one of us is a part of GOD.

      Each person is composed of bad and good substances.
      There are two dogs inside us Good Doggy and Bad Doggy. Whenever you try to do something good or bad both the doggies bark together. Now it is your duty to feed the Good Doggy always so that he becomes more and more healthy. And refrain yourself from feeding the Bad Doggy so that he starves to death.

      What is the food of the doggies?
      When you try to do some good work the Good Doggy will bark to encourage you whereas the Bad Doggy will bark to discourage you and hold you back from doing so. Now if you perform the good work then you are feeding the Good Doggy. On the other hand when you try to do something bad, then the Bad Doggy will bark to encourage you whereas the Good Doggy will bark to discourage you and try to keep you away. If now you stop yourself from doing something evil, then you feed the Good Doggy.

      God is a belief, a faith.   THIS IS WHAT I THINK. YOU CAN DEFINITELY HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

  8. Shil1978 profile image87
    Shil1978posted 7 years ago

    What you call him/her is not important. The names we use, the gender that we attribute, etc. are irrelevant. When I look at this wonderful earth and the universe with all of its galaxies, stars, planets, life, etc. - it seems illogical to me that all of this came out of nothingness.

    For me, God is the entity that controls the cycle of creation and destruction. Its not as if God necessarily controls the everyday fate of humans, stars, planets, etc., but definitely in the greater scheme of things - I believe God plays a part.

    Who set all that we see today in motion? We know that all that we see today came out of a pinpoint-sized, high-density mass (if you believe in the Big Bang theory). Can the starting point have just happened, randomly?

    It seems kind of illogical to believe that something can just start on its own. Isn't it logical to believe that there's a method to all of this?

    My belief in God is different from most - in the sense that I don't believe in God in the tradional sense. So, while I pray (more out of habit and fear ingrained in me), I am skeptical of whether God really hears all our prayers. I mean, does he really sit around hearing prayers of humans, when there must be a zillion other things happening in the Universe and perhaps elsewhere. For, who knows, there might be other places too!!

    For me, God is the only entity who knows the "theory of everything," and perhaps will remain the only entity who knows the absolute secrets of our vast universe and beyond. I believe there is an intelligence behind the creation of the universe and hence my belief in God. Its not a blind belief, however, and I rest my case at that!!

    I once thought along similar lines shil1978 and still do to some extent but I have changed based on one idea, time.  I realised that there is no need for a beginning.  If something has always existed then nothing never existed smile

    Justine76posted 7 years ago

    God is something that may or may not exist, but clearly isn't paying attention. The idea of GOD is the source of much heartache, pain, suffering, judgment, confusion, wars, fighting, arguments, fingerpointing, justifiactions of horrible mistreatment of others, and plain old discomfort. People who have "faith" and feel loved and protected and happy about it all, are still subject to ridicule and bad treatment becuase of their belief. Im not saying GOD did all that, but the idea of GOD certianly causes lots of fights, and I dont see him stopping any of it...

    God is the one in us  who direct everyone thoughts.

    The good clean and positive thoughts are from the true God.
    The evil impure and negative thoughts are from the false God.

    Your God therefore is the thoughts you follow.

      rhamsonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      In some respect you could be right.  What if by giving over a problem to God and you waited for an answer?  Then all of a sudden it came to be. You could argue that it was coincidence but then you would never know if it was God or not.  That could drive you insane if you let it.

      Belief in God is a personal choice and one no one can prove or explain to anybody else.  You accept it or you don't.

      ragnaworksposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Why do so many people deal only in absolutes? It seems with most people, there either absolutely is a god, or there absolutely is not a god. There's no middle ground, or room for debate. This topic is often driven more by emotion than by actual logic and discussion, and that goes for both sides of the fence.

Man invented god(s) to explain all the things we couldn't figure out, to ensure propagation of the species, and provide a basic format for societies of the past to follow (like don't sleep with your sister). Things change. Kill a god. Believe in yourself. (But don't sleep with your sister)

    1. ragnaworks profile image61
      ragnaworksposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        Not all people that choose to believe in a higher power do so because of fear of death. There are many positive and negative motivations for doing so. Everyone has their own personal convictions, and their own conclusions as to the meaning and understanding of our reality. You could take one person, show them all of existence, and they would come to a final conclusion that there must be a higher power. You could take another person, show them all of existence as well, and they would come to a final conclusion that there could never be a higher power.  What one person would consider a series of random events, another person would see as an intelligent force at work. Where one person sees chaos, another may see order. What is chance and coincidence to one person could be fate and destiny to another. Each person interprets reality differently. That is why there are so many different beliefs and opinions in the world.

        yes, this fueled a lot of philosophers, scientists etc : Einstein, Nikoli (influence of his father), Darwin, Kant etc etc

        to me "God" is a mystery to keep us thinking. just because you think it exists you stop thinking the WWWH questions and rely on it completely. also in the same manner, because you believe god does not exists you just stop there - does it really end there? beliefs are about explaining MORE of the phenoumena. though imo, the more the belief contradicts science the less value it has.

        1. ragnaworks profile image61
          ragnaworksposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            You are right, many people from both the religious and secular sides tend to be close-minded when it comes to this particular issue. The question of whether a higher power exists seems to be the "be all/end all" of questions for most people. As for the value of a belief, science can't really lend that much credence one way or the other towards the existence of a higher power. Our science simply is not advanced enough yet to make a factual determination of the existence/non-existence of a higher power(s). It is indeed a mystery, one that has occupied the minds of people for ages, and no doubt will do so for ages to come.

    This debate is almost over.
    Science will provide final evidence on the source of life within a year. It is already known that we are star dust, and that is what most will deduce when they know and understand the theory, which was made much easier by a scientist I heard on BBC today who put it in relatively simple terms.

    "What is GOD according to you?"

    God is Love.  God is Power, Knowledge and Tenderness.  He is the Counselor and will be the Judge.  God is the Creator, He is the Saviour, He gives all of us our conscience, His Holy Spirit lives in those that follow Him.

    God is the only reason that we have love, that we know love and that there is love.  In the midst of chaos there is one absolute and that is the Blessed Way of Jesus.  He is the Spirit that drives us on this journey on this earth, some of us accept it because we hear His calling but those who do not hear His calling will not accept because they have closed their spiritual ears and their heart, they have chosen and God doesn't force anyone, He has given us a free will.

    The concept of god has changed significantly over the centuries, there used to be many gods that people believed in but now understand they were mythical and have replaced those myths with new gods.

    It is a concept that is as personal to the individual as their fingerprints. No two god concepts are alike.

              But this goes back to the age-old argument: Which religion (if any) is correct? Which one has the right interpretation of "God"? And why would one religious text have more validity than any other? In the end, it comes down to personal conviction.
