I really am finding these days that I do not agree with the Hindhu/Buddhist notion of I AM. That God is somehow pure awareness or consciousness and that is all.

To me, when the bible says God made Adam & Eve in His own image, He made them PEOPLE because He/She is Himself a Person.

To me God is a big Person. With a personality, character, wit, humour, mind, feelings, ego even!

Life is all about people!

God created people because THAT IS WHAT HE/SHE IS. To me even animals are small PEOPLE.

Yes, God is a very very very big person...that happens to have a spirit body....that is sustaining the entire Universe and other Universes on every dimension...
That is a soft and sweet as puppy-breath and explodes mighty Super Novas along with the 150 billion Stars/Suns in our little Galaxy (most 50 times larger than our own Sun).

A very big Being, indeed.

My opinion? He is nothing if not pure feelings.

of course god can be anything it wanted to be, including to manifest as a person

Geocentrism at its worst. I would have thought that people in this forum are working hard to overcome that but it seems that I am wrong.

God created life in his image-nation, or... imagination.

Of course, the blueprint of a human being comes from the highest heights of creation and is imprinted on every level, to the densest here on earth. Everything in creation/that is created already has a blueprint and is mirrored and reflected all throughout life.

God is all that there IS, but to say that God is a person is to reduce what IS to a mere thing, God is all that there IS, nothing else, because there isn't anything else.

Isn't God also all there is not? The NOT is there as much as the IS, will be and will never be.

now your bringing duality into the picture, which is only the shadow of God, yes the shadow is also God, but because its from the mind, its missing the big picture, your only seeing a small portion, the portion is part of the whole, drop the blinkers and see the whole, when you see the whole there is nothing else to say, so i'll shut up now lol.

Honza - I have to say your post reminds me of Michelangelo Buonarroti's (1475 1564) The Creation of the Sun, the Moon and the Plants

http://www.wga.hu/frames-e.html?/html/m/michelan/3sistina/1genesis/8plants/08_3ce8.html

It depicts God in man-form. I think when I look at this painting it gives me a sense that God is someONE to which I can relate to and not just a form of energy in the cosmos.

The view of the energies we call God (http://www.spiritualforums.com/vb/showthread.php?p=220510&posted=1#post220510) as being I AM extends far beyond Hindu & Buddhist beliefs.

ALL have the right to hold whatever belief they want, including those who have different ones.
Religious tolerance is being about being just as respectful of others having different beliefs as we expect them to be of our chosen belief.

God can be whatever God is. Human so be it. I am Catholic so personally speaking I believe God is our Heavenly Father (although genderless) and the Son (Jesus/masculine) and the Spirit (feminine qualities) in three Divine Persons. Your view may line up with that of Catholicism. This is where Judaism and Christianity do not correspond. However God did tell me via locution to remember that All Are Created Equal. So that was my religious status on facebook: all are equal :D The I AM THAT I AM thing is probably a statement that means many things such as I am the first and all that is or will be. And it can mean I AM "Me" take me as I AM. I ♥ God.

If you believe that God is genderless using a gender reference (Father- male) is contradictory. Creator is a gender neutral word. Would Heavenly Creator work?

Your view may line up with that of Catholicism.

Aside from appreciating the rich, masterful artistry of the icons, artwork, & regalia I’m not coming w/ any areas where my view lines up w/ Catholicism.

I thought you said in a previous post that we are supposed to be "tolerant" so what happened now? I am not in the mood to talk with you over beliefs. Neither do I have to justify my beliefs to you. And why is it that you always contradict what I am saying in almost every post I say, whether it be in twin flames, dreams and now God.

genesis

"Then God said, Let us make47
humankind48 in our image, after our likeness,49 so they may rule50 over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth,51 and over all the creatures that move52 on the earth.""


**note: Im not speaking in personal terms, im speaking in monotheistic terms..

That verse right there, states that god isnt human, and cant be. We are a PART of god, only because we are made in its "image and after its likeness." According to the bible we didnt make god, god made us. So if anything god is part human, but is in no way A human. God is only as human as we are god itself, a tiny almost insignificant fraction of what god is.

Being tolerant doesn’t mean that one is required to not discuss beliefs or have another POV.

I am not in the mood to talk with you over beliefs.
You can talk about whatever you want when you want.

Neither do I have to justify my beliefs to you.
Did I ask this? Nope.

You seem to be attempting to mischaracterize my posts as if I’m stalking you & trolling. I urge others to review the 2 other replies I’ve made to your posts to determine for their self if these were combative trolling posts.
