    Is it even possible to know anything about God?

    The Bible was written by men, and things are inferred, butis it possible to know any fact about our idea of God?

    I can tell you what people believe about God. But chances are, we do not even have a good idea of the concept of God. In the BIble, it states that we cannot contemplate his presence or power. Those who have seen him know more about him than we do. And yes, there are a few individuals out there who have seen God when they died. Two children, a male and a female. They died for clinically 30-40 seconds and have similar views of what they saw. Though while one saw their future and grandchildren, the other saw his relatives and sister who was a miscarriage. It's interesting and inspiring. The girl even painted a picture of what God looked like.

    I think I would stick with the Bible.  The Bible is the word of God and yes it was written by men who were inspired by God.  I think the Bible tells us everything we need to know.  I consider the Bible to be one of the world greatest history books and find it odd that some people will believe some history books but not others.

    I'm going to answer this a little differently. I'm almost 100% sure that there is no proof of god. Not saying he isn't real or anything just sounds like your looking for proof. You believe what you need to and that is your proof.

    The more we live in the spirit, living in this world not of it, the closer we can be to God. This means also the more we stay in the word, studying, showing ourselves approved. If we seek, God is always there. If we want the truth not just answers that allow us to live in sin, God gives it to us. We can know nothing without the Holy Spirit inside. He is our connection to God.

    Both science & religion combined is correct, and not one alone without the other, can explain the true facts about the existence of a living God. read more

    The Bible is inspired by God.  The Bible is God's Word.  Men simply put the words on paper.  Man is not the author of the Bible--God Himself is.  All you have to do to learn about Him is to read His Word!

    There are no proven facts about man's abstract ideas of God. However, if man only operated logically he would see evidence in all that exists including himself. Instead we always try to anthropomorphize God as some powerful mystical old hobbit in some mystical place called heaven.

    Well, the Bible was hand-written by men but it was inspired by God. God used about 70 men to write the words of Scripture.
    Apart from the Bible though, look around you: at people, animals, plants, a beautiful sunset, wonderful rock formations. All these show how awesome God is. He is not only orderly (as in the human body structure) but he loves beauty (just look at a flower, or at a woman.)

    Yes.............

    even though, factually, the Bible was written by men..................

    it was by men who were inspired by and appointed by God, Himself.........


    Really, now, Larry Flint is not adding to the Bible, Joel Olsteen is not, Reverend Hill is not, Sister Nun-your-business, is not contributing......


    The BIBLE has already been written, by those who God, ordained as worthy of writing it.


    Through His selections and choices...........we can learn much.

    God NEVER once , condemned, questioning~

    I wrote an answer, but the system said that it was too long for an answer. I have transferred the answer to this Hub for your perusal: http://rgnestle.hubpages.com/hub/Is-It- … b-question

    I hope you find it useful.

    Of course it's possible.

    First of all, Genesis 1:26 says that we were created in God's image. Does that mean He's Homo sapiens? Of course not! It means that we are inherently non-physical, spiritual and immortal sources of creation. So, God doesn't care about these bodies we wear.

    Second, the Ten Commandments talk about "no graven images" of God or gods. Graven images are a lie because God does not have a physical form. They are a distraction from the truth that we must seek. That was the problem with so many of the Jews who failed to follow Him -- they were looking for physical instrumentalities, like kings and doubt about miracles.

    The secrets are in the Bible. With humility you can find them. You can know how to pray so that your prayers are answered instantly and usually in the affirmative. When you know what truth "faith" is (that needed for walking on water), you will know God.

    OK, this may cause a little controversy, but I am getting way too many Bible answers. For those of you who say the Bible is the word of God. I can't take something is true simply because it says it is true. I no longer would like to hear the Bible was by written men who God spoke through, because the Bible says it was. t is circular logic and it has no place in conversation.

    I did not ask whether there is a God or whether you believe the Bible, the question is, is it possible to know ANYthing about God?
