    "Person" doesn't have to mean human! "Person" refers to traits that include emotions, volitions, intelligence.

    Many people limit God, because they don't really know Him. When we try to limit or say "To me, God is like this...", then we commit idolatry - making God something He's not. But then again, we will never truly know everything about God. So, we must be very careful to try not to impose our assumptions on Him.

    So, what do Catholics base their religion on. The bible, or something else.

    Really? But if we're made in the image of God, then wouldnt he have to be human?

    My school says that Elohim is a personal god, and has revealed himself to us. They say that God wants us to know him, and he is a personal god. So how can you not make assumptions about him? They say that God's personalities are apparent.... i dont get it though....
    I see God as more of an impersonal oneness.... it seems you view it the same way?

    You will know Christians by their good works, not just by their words.

    In a loose sense, yes. But the Bible says that Jesus is at the right hand of God in heaven. Though I don't fully know what that means. But then again, He never left God in the first place. Jesus was always with God.

    What "works" do they need to accomplish? Meaning being kind to one another? Meaning mission work? Meaning charity? The Christians I know arent just cruel of the tongue....

    bang bang, do you really think the wicked get the better life? I would really like to know what you are calling the better life. Cause I used to live that "better life". And wouldn't trade back to my old life for nothing.

    If you go around treating people like you just did to me, after I asked a friendly question, then I would venture to guess I'm not the first person you insulted. Am I the first person you have treated like this. I would go out on a limb here and say no.
