  • I believe God is love - and the ultimate description of God would be all that love entails - forgiveness, selflessness, compassion, unconditionality, etc. All of the things He asks of us, in terms of graciousness, humility, kindness, etc, are aspects of love, and make up His character, as He, IMO IS the pure embodiment of love...

  • I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
    the Maker of heaven and earth,
    and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:

    Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
    born of the virgin Mary,
    suffered under Pontius Pilate,
    was crucified, dead, and buried;

    He descended into hell.

    The third day He arose again from the dead;

    He ascended into heaven,
    and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
    from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

    I believe in the Holy Ghost;
    the holy catholic church;
    the communion of saints;
    the forgiveness of sins;
    the resurrection of the body;
    and the life everlasting.

    Amen.

  • I guess it depends on which God you're referring to. I believe in a limitless number of Deities - Gods & Goddesses, each with their own purpose, personality and nature...

  • i dont think God is a being in any way we can understand...so honestly i dont try anymore. but i do think God is a being of immense power and set our world in motion, but no longer interferes with us on a mundane daily basis. and i think God is a good & loving being that wants the best for us, but we have to do our part & sometimes bad things just happen that have nothing to do w/ God.

  • Why does everyone assume the Christian God? ;)

    there's been dozens of gods in human history. The Christian God is just the one in fashion at the moment.
    Plus there's the Goddess of the Pagans
    there are lots of beliefs out there that worship a higher power that isn't the Christian God

    But going with the "assumptions" made here that you talking about the Bible God... its one more god made by humans to explain things they didn't understand and as a means to control the masses and it still seems to work. The Bible offers a guideline to leading a good life, but I feel you can lead that good life without needing to worship anything. Good people can still be non-religious.
