What do you think of this quote?

I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.
John Lennon

  • I totally agree with that quote..

    I had an old Sikh man tell me once.........." If you can not see God in all.. Then you do not see God at all.........." And I with all my heart believe that.

  • I like it!
    I also really like this one by Isaac Asimov: “If I were not an atheist, I would believe in a God who would choose to save people on the basis of the totality of their lives and not the pattern of their words. I think he would prefer an honest and righteous atheist to a TV preacher whose every word is God, God, God, and whose every deed is foul, foul, foul.”
