    Do god(s) understand themselves?

    This is a difficult question to phrase correctly, and honestly, even the title doesn't really cover it. My question is... if gods have an innate purpose, role, etc... do they understand it, or are they at least aware of it themselves? Or, in your view, do they have no innate role? If they...

    Nominate "Real" Gods

    Some people are just God-like. What they do for humanity can just never be matched by anyone else. And I've been thinking about these people and what they did to change the world. Sometimes it's hard to imagine human society without these individuals. These people exemplify human creativity and...

    Pagans/Heathens do you believe in an all powerful God above the rest?

    Howdy! Just to clarify right off the bat I am talking about you personally. There is obviously not any ideological body that would declare what pagans believe or don't believe. I was checking out a book called The Search for God in Ancient Egypt. The book is by Jan Assman and has been...

    Theists, how do you worship your God(s)?

    I'm interested in learning what "worship" means to you guys, gals and enbies. What is worship to you? Is it a specific act, an attitude? Is it a special event, or something you do every day, or every moment? What acts or methods do you employ when you engage in worship? Is it something you do...

    Theists, do you wish everyone to obey whatever you say God say everyone should obey?

    Theists, do you wish everyone to obey whatever you say God say everyone should obey? Does it made you sad/angry that not everyone obey whatever you believe God say everyone should obey? Do you plan to rule the world so that everyone will obey whatever you believe God say everyone should obey...

    Your Thoughts on God's Will For Believers In Christ Jesus?

    What are your thoughts about these scriptures to seem to profess God's will for Christian believers? Do you believe what these scriptures found in 1 Thessalonians 5 have any merit to the life of a Christian believer considering it has to do with God's will for believers? Have you ever been...

    What is meaning of "idol" in the Christian state?

    I suspect that the word "idol" has changed its meaning. What was his meaning in the Christian Empire of Constantine the Great? Can this word be used in its old meaning again, replacing the word "gods" in the movies, ufology, and historic texts? Do we call idols the gods when we talk about...

    Genesis 1:26

    So my question is: why does "God" refer to himself in plural? (Let us create...) I did some research, and the Trinity isn't even mentioned in the Bible (at least not as "Trinity", there are hints of it). Why would a "God" that claims to be only God refer to what looks like others like him (as...

    Im new to the reading of the Guru Grant Sahib, question..

    Do other Gods exist according to the Guru? It says that there is only one God. But why is my translation speaking about other gods? This is a contradiction in the translation. Can someone who can read the original help me with this question?

    A religiously themed game...

    First off, this is not a game currently in existence, it's something I have been kicking around the idea of making for a while, and the more ideas I get, the more fun it seems... well... to me anyway. The idea may offend some, or everyone (I don't know) but this being a religiously-dedicated...

    Within the Arena of Human Accountability: God vs. Gods

    I was speaking with my brother on a number of topics and he more or less accidentally blurted something out in a fit of thought that got me thinking. In the case of belief in multiple gods that each attend to an area of reality - for example a wind god, sun god, sea god, etc., the humans...

    On Working With Gods & Making Requests Of Them

    As of late there's been a growing tendency within the Online Heathen Community that in essence attempts to shut down prayers made to the gods. People are told that they shouldn't go to a god they don't have a standing relationship with, that it's like asking a complete stranger for things. I've...

    The Bible Says Satan is Zeus

    For some reason I've never in my life seen anyone on these forums and in general even mention or ask about how in the Christian Bible the New Testament indirectly states that Satan is the ancient pagan Greek God Zeus. "Revelation 2:12-13 In Pergamon, where Satan's Throne is" "The Pergamon...

    Shiva is the name of the 666 in Revelations, is Shiva Satan?

    I just want to have an honest discussion about this, the point of this post is to have just that. It's NOT my intention to disrespect anyone's religion, beliefs, gods/goddesses, etc. __________ Satan may actually be Shiva in the east. I have included an article on this at the bottom of this...

    What attracts people to the spiritual?

    I go through this cycle. Suddenly I feel strong spiritual inclination, I try to find a religion or spirituality that will satisfy said inclination, I find no evidence then finally I give up and eventually it will start all over again. When I've tried to find correlation with any particular...

    Religious quizzes.

    I like taking surveys and doing these little quizzes online. AT one point I had even signed up with okay cupid just so I could keep answering their little matchmaking questions. Any way I had found a couple of these quizzes having to do with religion/spirituality/paganism and just thought I...

    Making contact with the Gods

    I was watching videos on various pagan traditions and there was a whole series of videos from different content creators on their matron and patron deities. People were more or less talking about having mother and father figure deities. They also talked about how they came to those deities as...

    Pagans: Are the stories of pagan gods literal truths or allegories ?

    This is a question more for pagans than anyone else. Are the stories of the gods literal truths? Did they happen exactly as described or are they representations of something else? How do you view the pagan gods ? What are they really?

    You ever thought about how difficult the spiritual can be to demonstrate or provide evidence for?

    To someone who likes evidence of something before he or she believes in something it's almost impossible to justify spiritual experience within their own life. Take Jesus for instance, give him all his miracles, give him all his works from the gospel and so on. Would this prove the god he spoke...

    How important is your ancestry in paganism?

    This is a question I expect a lot of different answers for. Afterall there is no real codification of Paganism so you know expecting a uniform answer would be silly. I have had several people on several occasions tell me that the only valid way to worship any pagan deities is to worship those...
