"O Holy Spirit, descend plentifully into my heart. Enlighten the dark corners of this neglected dwelling and scatter there Thy cheerful beams."
~ Saint Augustine
We have several spiritual misconceptions. Well, first off nobody has seen God with their physical eyes so no physical description, of how God really looks like, is possible to provide to the popular curiosity. God might be the ugliest creature in the entire universe!
Because religions have been enslaving us not to re-think creatively about the spiritual dimension - we all are still living with outdated conceptions about what we have conveniently termed as "God". A butterfly might consider you a 'God' - because you are much more powerful than a butterfly. In the butterfly society - they might even build churches and temples and cathedrals to worship your existence , and to please you. But in all honesty, you are not really what they conceive you to be. They have formed an illusive idea of how and what you really are. They don't know that you are mortal. They haven't seen your childhood, your crises, your financial status or your relationships. They don't know you as you really are.
Fundamentally - God is really just like one of us. He has a mind, heart, feelings, and perhaps even emotions. It (God) has the 'need for love' just as we do.
The more deep I delve into God and Its artistic and engineering achievements ~ the more amazed I get. God is a terrific artist! And an incredible engineer. Even from the smallest grasshopper to the biggest giraffe - are all examples of masterpieces of the most 'advanced' engineering. We have no human creation which can match that of any of God's.
I personally feel that 'human spirituality' desperately needs a serious update. This is the best point to begin with.
Have a peg and be in the spiritual dimension.
The flaw in your argument is glaringly obvious. The butterfly has a physical description of us because we exist to the butterfly. It doesn't matter in the least they know or understand our problems. They actually have a deity they can see.
And, your deity is where? Oh yes, you admitted from the get go no one has ever seen him.
It's funny how you take a false premise, couple it with a contradiction and then go right ahead and contradict the contradiction. Amazing.
What about children? Are they not of human creation? I would speculate there are few if any parents who would deem anything more of a masterpiece than their own children.
It's always fun when someone professes to have never seen and admits we have no way of knowing anything about it and then begins to tell us all about it's needs and abilities.
Like others you state with the assumption that God is real and attribute your own thinking to him with any evidence of anything. It's the most bizarre thing to watch.
Have you ever met any of your primary school-teachers' parents?
Do you like taking romantic walks in the moonlight?
Can you say what you think so we can have a conversation?
Does any of your primary-school teachers' parents ever exist /existed?
Is your god one of the "forces" of evolution and random chance, or the ET from another universe that some declare?
The first we know can and will produce the beauty we find in nature, the second is claimed to do so, although the claim is seriously lacking in supporting evidence.
There is almost a satanic element to the Western mode of thinking.

If you were to stand before God today and He should ask you, "Why should I let you into Heaven?"...what would your response be? Looking for serious soul searching answers. Would love to help anyone seeking true understanding.

What is the difference between God hating something and man hating something?What exactly does God hate? What and were does God draw the line on what is and is not to be hated? I know God hate's sin, but is there anything else He hates? Is man suppose to hate anything?

If a woman is unable to have children, does that mean God doesn't want her to be a mom?

Can you really change God's mind? If yes, then what does that say about God? If not, then why do it? And why ask others to pray for you or for someone who is perceived to be in need of prayer? I have asked this question to many religious people because I've never understood the purpose of things...
