It seems to be true: the common belief that there is only one god.
Could it be, that all gods are just another face of the same? I think so.
All that is = all that is! we are a part of it!

Maybe it is time we all look god in the face, by looking within ourselves.
Then can we see the beauty in ALL religion.
I believe we all agree and that we just don't know it.
I see all religion as pieces of a spiritual puzzle. - one we have yet to finish -

Well put.

I go by the label transtheist because it pretty much describes this.. it sort of transcends 'God' and sees all these different beliefs (atheism, theism, pantheism, polytheism, ect) as same parts of the one whole. Not just that but that one cannot really truly know.. they only know what they know, so like a mixture of agnosticism and gnosticism too. Something like that anyway.

God is inside, outside, all around, everywhere and nowhere you look. You are God, I am God, Jesus is God, Buddha is God. I think religions are like side roads all leading to or from one main road- TRUTH. All that is is Truth and we are all part of that in our own ways.

I read an NDE actually of a guy who said something similar. I think it's fascinating.

Understanding is needed concerning the nature of God, which takes study... which requires interest in seeking Truth.
God is Truth.


St. Paul, when in Greece, gave a sermon involving their own tributes, and poets...
Stating that he noted the statue made to, "The Unknown God", Who one of their own poets wrote about, asserting...
"In Whom we live, and move, and have our being."


Is their judgement of God? Of course, and we ourselves are involved with that, as we can read in the text of the Tibetian Book of the Dead.

Noticed my spelling was amiss, above. Meant to ask, "Is there judgement of God?"

to cycle back to the idea of other posts. god is not truth. god is universal. many ways to see him. my teachers say that god is like the world and each faith has a piece. they then showed the world to me with the different time zones showing. those with a small truth say it is nine o'clock in the morning and that is their truth. it is not the truth of the all(god). for there are different time zones each holding a truth.

no need to fight over the different truths. allow an understanding to encompass each piece. instead of forcing your piece into a puzzle where it does not fit. we are in a different time. i do not mean time zone here. we are in an era of time where we can start to see the different pieces and get a picture of the whole, the all. i love this time.

as to the NDE post. love that too. i did the life review thing too. it did not feel like a judgement. it was a review. god does not judge. god guides.

i wish you well
kk

If you seek God, you won't have to look far ...

There can be only one God because we are all part of One consciousness. We are like one body and interconnected in one Spirit. There can only be one ultimate Reality.
