    If God is energy ( do not need to be the abrahanic God) and everything is build or created by energy, would'nt that mean a human being should be able to "tapp in to" the energy of God?

    Is that how a human being can awaken to God from within?

    Just a thought in my mind :confused: its mind boggeling :oops:

    God is concious energy. God is a concious force\energy

    So i agree with you

    Good question. I think that is possible since God is everywhere. But i think it is only possible if we clean\purifies our souls first

    Energy is one property of physical systems (like momentum, velocity, mass, charge, spin, etc). How could God be energy?

    Spiritual energy is NOT the same as different types of physical energy. God is a spiritual energy that is not similar to anything else

    Energy is motion/work or the potential for it.
    It's universal, infinite is never created or destroyed.
    Humans are a sentient form of energy.

    I'm not sure that calling God energy tells us much. God is the motive force of the universe?
    The word "God" usually carries some expectation beyond that.

    Do you ever wonder where your certainty comes from?

    I believe God is a concious spiritual energy\force

    I believe this concious spiritual energy\force\God is universal, infinitive, never destroyed or created
    Humans, our souls is created from this energy
    God is the motive force of the universe

    So the difference between you and me:

    I believe this spiritual energy\force is concious

    And you believe this energy is not concious

    And because of this you are a atheist and i'm a teist

    I am an atheist because I accept my ignorance specifically about what God is.

    Energy transforms into Matter. So while God might be an energy source I'm not sure that it follows that just anyone can tap into that energy.
    In the Christian religion it's only after being converted that the Holy Spirit resides in a person.

    Energy is a property, not a thing that exists unto itself. You will never find a clump of energy just like you won’t find a clump of length or softness; you will only find things that possess them as properties.

    It is true that it is not just to tapp in to the energy of God :) as humans i think we must remove all our thoughts about the physical vs spiritual existence, and understand existence in a totally different way.

    This is the direction Einstein was going with his belief in "Spinoza's God". See, I always knew you and Einstein are like two peas in pod!
