It was the case in the Pisces Age that God could be known with the mind. Because all it required was intellectual engagement: following religious tenets and belief. This understanding is where humanity currently still is and will be for decades to come. Aquarian Age spiritual understanding and wisdom on the other hand will take some time to manifest fully.

Here's another argument about God's oneness.

If there were more than one god, then it would be illogical to claim that any god is either all-knowing or all-powerful. The gods would be limited since a portion would be allocated to other gods.

Doesn't compute.
That you know a lot (all?) doesn't mean that I cannot also know a lot (all?)
All powerful in respect to the creation?
If God is outside of something (creation) there is no reason that multiple Gods could be attributed with being all-whatever.

Are you saying you know the god relationships, or that god is not apart from what is created (by them)?

The question arises: Is God progressive or stagnant? If God is progressive, wouldn't everyone's varied experiences add to the glory of a constantly progressive God that contains all of the intellect of all universes?

They asked Ali-ye-Sahl about the truth of unity. "It is near to where there are speculations, but it is distant in realities".

God had made it easier to hold onto one thought and this is the name of God.

What is unity? Unity is one, right? A supreme intelligence like God knows this. Why would God want to ruin his unity? It is impossible because God isn't created, to be created, means that you are not a God. Thatís why God is One.

Yes, there is only one God and you and I are not Him and we all need Him. He is Creator God. He is exalted above all. He is worthy of worship in Truth.

We are all God, our DNA is part of Gods. Divine DNA is fused into our spirit, we are a partaker of Gods nature.... each one of us.

We are in agreement that God can not be known with the mind through intellectual engagement. One must pass through the "cloud of unknowing" (Christian mysticism), total surrender (Islam), "not knowing" (Bodhidharma and Zen), etc. to RE-CONNECT with that which lies beyond thoughts and concepts.

I believe that we are in agreement.

If God is one then why would Allah command his people to kill all infidels (non believers), whereas Jesus commands his followers to love all people including non believers?
