    it is believed by believers that god made humans in its image but is it so or it is reverse?...for e.g. get angry , wanting to be appreciated , need of others praying , need of people remembering , punishing , judging etc...if we look at way and means of how god wants it too...it is typical human than from super being...your views on it?

      God created man in His image

      The man who is the image sees God in his image.

      Therefore the Father sees the sons
      And the Sons see the Father.

      Those who cannot see the Father within his own image are not from the Father.
      Neither does the Father sees Him.

        So those who do not see the Father came from where do you know?

          There is a Father of Light and a Father of darkness...

          One is full of Knowledge and the other is totally ignorant even of his own self.

          The sons adopt their traits so therefore one son will never know His father.

            So are they separate these Fathers or one father?

              Ultimately in the scheme of all things there is only One father...
              But in the temporal realm the there will always be two fathers.

      Man made deities in his/her image.  Not only that but deity is a sock puppet as deity likes everything the individual likes.

        I agree with you in that man has made deities in his image. However, I don't think too many of us made that to be a sock puppet.

      The chicken or the egg? God is the beginning, man is the end.

    God made man in his image. In the bible God is spirit. So the image that makes sense then is spirit.. The attributes you mention are mans perception of what is physical not spiritual.

      so why chief focus is on these attributes?

        The physical body is denser then spirit. Just as physical matter is denser than air. When the things of mind from the physical body thinks it is thinking in a denser form than that of spirit. Remove the thinking, we would perceive much more than what we do. It is dependent on these perceptions to perceive more of the finer spirit of who we are. Like William Blake says....If the doors of perception were cleansed we would see infinity...or something like that.

          got that but to remove that we must remove religion from the domain...religion itself is prism of viewing what you call infinity...nature itself is unique book and much better book than most books which are called divine...isn't it?

            We are all unique and we each have our own way. Not everyone gets the nature thing, the religion thing, philosophy thing. or even the moralist thing.  If we all perceived in the same manner there would be no need for any "thing" at all. 

            The diversity and uniqueness of our perceptions is demanding other ways to exist to perceive more. Today proves that, as scientists are making further discoveries, new alternate therapies are being discovered and so much more alternate ways to help one perceive. There isn't enough ways that man is satisfied with to find our true existence. So new ways are coming to the fore hard and fast,

          Now, be very careful where you're going with this, because no physical laws support the existence of spirits, in fact, many phsyical laws would be violated by their existence, hence they would no longer be physical laws.

            Not if spirit is energy. How could energy violate these laws then?

              Why would you call energy "spirit" when energy is already understood?

              So, what exactly is a spirit? From where does this so-called energy emit? What kind of energy is it?

                pennyofheavenposted 6 years agoin reply to this

                Why wouldn't I when that is what we are?

                Everything about us and in us is energy. Everything around us is energy.

                Everything emits this energy.

                  Everything emits what energy? What exactly are you talking about?

                    Matter is energy right (potential energy)? Energy also comes in the form of non matter. Kinetic some might call it and there are many types of kinetic. Our bodies are matter, what we consume our bodies convert into energy to sustain our bodies. The energy from what we eat then is by way of consuming another form of matter(also energy).  Air, sun, rain, wind etc are all forms of energy.

                    If you can name something that doesn't have energy or a form of energy I am interested to know.
