Is there one God

    Is there just one God or no God. I am wondering because my opinion is that there is a higher power and he or she came down to earth in a form that will make each ethnic group more comfortable in his form. I also think there is different point of views on religion that will benefit different ethnic groups.

      Yes;surely the Creator-God exists; and there is no other God than Him; and Muhammad, Jesus, Moses,Buddha, Krishna were truthful Messengers Prophets who received truthful Word of Revelation from Him for benefit of human beings.

        How do you claim to know? People have been claiming things about the heavens for centuries and not much has changed.

      Good question. Many gods have been claimed to exist, of which many are now considered mythical by those whose ancestors used to believe in them. They now believe in a different god, which they don't consider mythical.

      With so many gods to choose from with so many varying messages, it's difficult to choose one over the other. They all have very convincing arguments. The "Worship and obey or burn for eternity" brand of gods are the worst to choose from considering that if you choose one over the other, all the rest will be lining up to have you burn in their versions of a hellfire. So many choices of gods, so few options.



      Perhaps that places the cart before the horse in that it is the religious beliefs that create the ethnicity of those groups, rather than the other way round. smile

      No god!

      Why? (a) Life doesn't require any knowledge of any god to be understood and (b) Life doesn't require any knowledge of any god to be lived.

    "Is there just one God or no God." How about many gods? Is it a democracy or does it have to be a totalitarian state?

      The Creator-God is only one; there cannot be more, it is a reality which is not seen in terms of democracy or totalitarianism; which is only a human phenomenon.

    If I was god I would not want to be restricted to just one character in the cast reciting the same lines for the life of the show.

      It's when the characters and lines recited conflict and contradict does the casting then require review so as not to completely confuse the audience. smile

    I think you are right, there is only one God.  I don't know that I would think it has to do with ethnic groups, I would think it was more along the lines that different people perceive the same thing from different angles.  If there is a God that wanted to share the fact that He/She existed, then it would make sense to enlighten people in different cultures, in different ways, in order to be percieved by the most people. 

    A study was done once, and if I remember the results correctly they ran a scenario, taking most of the major religions, adding a variable for the number of different subcultures within each of the major civilizations that thrived a few thousand years ago and up until the time of Mohammed.  Then they added certain variables determined by anthropoligists and ran it through a computer.  The result was that the messages of the major religions would have probably been heard by everyone, with about 8% of the population, at any given time, being unable to grasp the concept. One does have to wonder about that 8%.  I guess not everyone can understand everything.

      To save everyone from fighting and killing each other who is the right God all over again?

      I am God and today I announce that each one you are God, now starting beating up yourself first, and then come out shaking hands with each of the other gods.

        See, I think that is where man has gotten it all wrong.  We're just a bunch of schmucks trying to figure out a whole lot of information from a tiny little fact.  We just throw too much disinformation on top of it. And then egos get involved.  Too much testosterone in the management of religion, in my opinion.

      The Message of the Revealed Religions is very simple and can be understood easily by everybody. There is no god except ONE the Creator-God; and Muhammad, Jesus,Moses,Buddha and Krishna are His truthful Messengers Prophets and models for the human beings.

        I think I can probably agree with you, to a certain extent. I think they each probably were enlightened. I think the religion that has built up around any enlightened individual has probably amplified a seed of truth into a massive volume of bs (pardon my french), but the core message is probably of some divine origin.

      In order to love mankind better, I must love myself first, like god would, its 50% about me and 50% about everyone else.

      For all we have in life, is what each of us give away, give love get love give  money and so on...

      Your one and only God, separates people from themselves and created fight clubs of war. Makes people god fearing, believes the
      World will end and threat hell to most people on earth.

      The Bible’s has 2000 discussion about money, that's 7X greater discussion than heaven and hell combined mean wail Satan invented job.

      Not my idea of an all loving God,

        I might venture to say that it is not God who separates people.

        We FREELY choose to separate ourselves from each other.  This one doesn't like the way this one says something, this one doesn't like the way this one looks, this one doesn't think this one has a brain, this one thinks he's the only one with a brain, this one thinks he's God's spokesman, this one thinks he's God.  And it all boils down to no one wants to sit with anyone else, so we all sit alone and declare that it's all GOD'S fault,  or for those of you who don't believe in God, it's all RELIGION'S fault.

        Not God's fault we don't get along.  It's ours.  Flat out.

          It just easier to blame it on God or Satan rather than  self.  That's why when everyone is God works, no one can be  over rightious, enough to blame it on God, and the god concept will not go away.

    If I am God I must think for all. If I am not God I must think for myself.

      Do both, why can't you be yourself first and be equally connected to all things and with the natural flow in the Universe?

      With only one religious God, it’s not possible

    "Do both, why can't you be yourself first and be equally connected to all things and with the natural flow in the Universe?" Agree if I would not first be called bipolar.

    Psalms 82:6

    I have said, You are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.


    Even Jesus used this as a Defense against the Pharisees

      paarsurreyposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      This means Jesus was Son of Man; not a god or son of god literally as the Christian believe following Paul and the Church who have mislead them through the ages.

      Paul and the Church are therefore the Anti-Christ. Arn't they?

    There are at least as many Gods as there are individuals who believe in God.  [Just_curious] suggests 'same thing from different angles'.  I am suggesting an infinite number of angles period.  Either way no us no God of any kind. Check out [billgaede] and [quark] on this and similar topics.
