According to the sub-science of hypnotism - belief being it's key-concept - beliefs are limiting, as they make somewhat fuzzy sense of what is objective enough to be called real. Namely, objectivity is measured by what is known, not what is believed, imagined, supposed, or philosophised about.
So, when we allow our views of reality, even the reality of god to be mixed with our deliberate mind's constructs - or those suggestively implanted into our mind, then we are operating in a robotic fashion, similar to the one present in hypnosis or brainwashing.
The most honest thought about god that humans could ever produce is the one of "not knowing". Everything above that is intellectual arrogance or fanatical delusion. In a strictly logical sense, if anything - god is a source, and to borrow a metaphor of a river, imagine the river deciding to run in reverse to meet its source. Just like a thought can't think about itself, eye can't see itself, so we can't produce a true concept of god.
Quantum physics is showing us that the deeper we go "down the rabbit hole" the less sense everything makes. And the most honest among those scientists was the one who said something like - "If any physicist tells you that they understand quantum physics, they lie."
As I am writing about this I can't help being affected by zen teachings which would dismiss any discussion about god as a game of measuring weight with inches.
Another name for that game would be the one of religion. Kids play their make-belief games as a normal part of their development. Then we grow up and we thwart the adult phase of development by continuing to make believe.
Believing is a poor substitute for knowing. It's limiting our scope of perception, and while rational folks "believe what they see", religionists "see what they believe".
