How I define God reveals more about me than about God.
My definition of God is still evolving.
I don't claim to know all there is to know about God - nor do I believe I will understand much in my entire life - compared to all there is to know.
Currently, I define God as love based on truth - and as Paul Tillech defined God, as "one's ultimate concern."
I also define God as ultimate GOoD - which each of us strive for by trial and error - active faith.
Part of that GOoD, I consider to be a...
Is there one religion that is spiritually suitable to all people? If so, what is it and why is it suitable to all people? If not, can there be such a religion in theory? Why or why not?
Please note: For the sake of discussion, I am defining "spiritual" in this context as "the manner and extent to which a person deals with or copes with their psychological self."
Life escapes us, we don’t realize that life just zooms by and we live without purpose. We don’t even know what life is all about. We are born, we grow up, we educate our self, we take up a profession, occupation, we earn, we build a family and soon it’s time to go; we die, we pack up and we move on from planet earth. So, is this the purpose of life? Are we born just for the sake of consuming life or were we given life for a purpose? Why were we born? Do we have time to introspect, to...
The question is prompted by a remark atheist David Silverman made in an article on his book Fighting God. The article quotes him as saying:
“Some … people call me a (jerk) because I challenge the absurd notion that religion deserves respect by default. But religion is wrong for demanding respect simply for being, and even more wrong for demanding never to be questioned."
What do you think? Think he has a reasonable point? ,,,,Why, why not?

A Nativity scene that Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is planning will happen the evenings of Dec. 12 and 13.
The Satanic Temple of Detroit is awaiting approval from the Michigan State Capitol Commission to perform its own live display Dec. 19, Jex Blackmore, the temple’s director, said at a...
With all the religions who accept Jesus as their Savior, there are numerous realms of thought and doctrine. How could a person choose which has Christ's approval? Jesus' words at Matthew 7:21-23 come to mind. It does matter.
Interestingly, and fortunately for us, Jesus didn't say how to ID his true followers by what they teach, but rather, by how they act!!
Read, please, John 13:34-35. "Love among themselves," huh? Don't a lot of groups? No doubt! So how would this love be different, to...
I'm not sure if I can post a poll on here but who here believes that the universe originated from nothing? As some of the major scientific theories from the 20th century claimed or was there an originator of some sort? Doesn't have to be God necessarily in your opinion. Who believes the universe has no beginning? I'm just curious as to what you guys believe with regard to this topic and what the basis of your belief would be?
