    There is a huge gulf of differences between the Abrahamic religions. Enough so that I will not speak for them.

    Interpretation of scripture, which is what you are asking for.

    Im saying without any scripture, I see no difference between god of all three religions.

    Unless god does not exist without a form of scripture?

    From what I know even though we share the same God. All 3 faiths interpret him differently. I cant speak for how any Muslim or Jewish folk view God. You would have to ask them.

    Each of you interpret god according to your scriptures. Without scripture, there is no interpretation. I see no difference in god between all three faiths if there was no scriptures to use to define god.

    Unless god exist only if scriptures exist, without scriptures I see no difference.

    Unless gods existence is dependent on scripture?

    He is not dependent on scripture. But I still can't tell you what Muslims or Jewish think about the topic. Because I am not Muslim or Jewish.

    Forget Muslims and Jews. The question is the same. Without scriptures, how do you know god is male? (from a non trinitarian view)

    There's actually not that big of a theological difference. They all worship "God" as the god of Abraham; Yahweh.

    Male spiritual energy, I'd say.

    I dont, I already said it multiple times. I think God is genderless. But from what I can tell from scripture he prefers to be identified as masculine. So that's how I view him.

    True but the nuances are greater than most think, from what I can tell. Maybe I am wrong. /shrug

    They are referred both ways.
    Luke 13:34, “And you, my soul, dead in yourself, run under the wings of Jesus your mother and lament your griefs under his feathers… Christ, my mother, you gather your chickens under your wings; this dead chicken of yours puts himself under those wings.”

    If god is genderless how can you see him as male; how do you take his word for it if he isnt dependent on scripture?

    Yet one more time ...

    if (God), then

    for (every attribute {A})

    God != {A};
    God is a woman? Bush league anthropomorphic nonsense. It would be blasphemous were it not so ridiculous. :D

    Only when you use a janky NIV bible or such.

    Here it is with KJV.

    Luke 13:34

    34 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!

    Here it is a metaphor to convey an idea. That God protects his children. That doesn't imply God is feminine. Being protective is not just a feminine trait.

    Yes, metaphors are great for getting ideas across.

    Or you can be literal and think God is a female chicken. The ball is in your court. :p

    Correct, although the creation is formed inside the 'woman', no?
    sperm is not a 'seed' sperm is mere fertiliser, everything that is needed is already inside of the 'woman'

    I personally believe in multiple gods, I was just stirring the pot ;p
