It pains me so much when I read this kind of responses .

Have heard people say prayers along dis line " holy spirit we thank you , we praise you Jesus , pls send among us your Holyspirit , " HOW can u ask God to send God ( Holyspirit)among us ? Asking him to send himself among us ?

Somtimes i also hear : "we pray to God in the name of Jesus " . How can u say we pray to God in the name of God ( Jesus) ? , The whole stuff is confusing .

FOR CLARITY , WHO REALLY IS GOD ?

God is an imagery mythical medium, invented by our medieval ancestors (a specie of primate called human) in their search to unravel the puzzle of the universe and the reason why there varieties of animals and plant on the earth.

Who Is God ?

Surah Al-Hashr, Verse 22-24:
GOD IS HE save whom there is no deity: the One who knows all that is beyond the reach of a created being’s perception, as well as all that can be wit­nessed by a creature’s senses or mind: He, the Most Gracious, the Dispenser of Grace.
God is He save whom there is no deity: the Sovereign Supreme, the Holy, the One with whom all salvation rests, the Giver of Faith, the One who determines what is true and false, the Almighty, the One who subdues wrong and restores right, the One to whom all greatness belongs! Utterly remote is God, in His limitless glory, from anything to which men may ascribe a share in His divinity!
He is God, the Creator, the Maker who shapes all forms and appearances! His [alone] are the attributes of perfection. All that is in the heavens and on earth extols His limitless glory: for He alone is almighty, truly wise!

There are gods (satan/demons/fallen angels) and there is one God. (The creator of all things). He has many names. He is the Beginning and the End i.e He has no beginning or end. We as humans had a beginning but we dont't have an end because we are created in his own likeness. Moreover, He is I AM THAT I AM. The God of power, Wisdom, and riches of Glory. The Higher than the Highest, The Holy of Holies, Jehovah, The LORD of Hosts is his name.

He is The TRINITY GOD. The Godhead (Father), The Son(The WORD), and the Holyghost (Holyspirit). Man is the Body, Spirit and The Soul. The soul cannot die like the Body dies. But it can be separated from God. This is called 'the second death.'

God requires that we must serve him, and be like him in Holiness for us to be able to enter His Kingdom. And that we must accept believe that He is sent his Son to the world to reconcile man back to God.

If you want to see God in action, come to The Lord's Chosen Charismatic Revival Movement. You will have d conviction yourself that God is real. We are going to have a crusade at Portharcourt 15th and 16th sat and sun. I invite u to be there.

Typical of an average hypocritical & downright deceptive Christian. They're always quick to woo or lure you into their fruadulent coven.

Rather than answering OP's question; you're inviting in to the Lord's Chosen 419 Coven.

The same Lord's Chosen Lazarus Muoka whose stock in trade is defrauding his gullible & brainwashed members with fake miracles.

Blackman and the Blackwoman is GOD. You are a God that doesn't have enough knowledge of himself which involves all aspect of life known and unknown, so You are an unaware God, nevertheless still God.

That's what I mean read about other religious definition of who god is and then come up with your definition. But if you want my definition of who God is, then here it is,

God is an imaginary being composed by some confused humans to control, insatiable need to understand any reason for their existence, and just want to be governed by the idea of a god.

God did not create us to serve Him, for that is purely religion sucked in beliefs and superstition. God hates religion with all of His nerves and body because it is simply ignorance. God is knowledge, God is wisdom, God is understanding and they are all in complete opposite to Ignorance=religion=belief.

God created us to be God; It is simple as that. God is the Spirit which materilizes continously in Souls. We are the Souls. The Spirit sits in the Blackness of the Soul, The Spirit guides the Soul all the way and at the same time gives the Soul freewill, so that the Soul can experience life to its fullest. As the Soul experiences, so does the Spirit.

I just had chicken as A Soul, God does not want me to eat chicken because it contains purine which would eat up my brains on a gradual process, I would be punished because I know, yet I ate it. but my punishment won't be severe because I am trying to quit eating meat and eat has My Spirit once ate which was purely herbs and fruits. The bible says "Ye shall not eat blood", it is vampirism.

The Trinity is not God the father, son and holyspirit. The non-blacks especially the europeans got it all wrong, or they did so to just to deviate the Original people from their real, natural and righteous state.

The Originator are a people in ONE SINGLE STATE OF MIND, called COSMIC UNITY. They are from the very Eldest to the Youngest, That is why in Africa Culture and traditions we give total respect to our Elders, even if they are few months older.

Secondly, we do not differentiate between man and woman, for the very good reason that one complement the other. A man is not complete without the woman, and the woman not complete without the man. So in most African tribes, we use "O" as gender pronoun. Yoruba does not have "My younger ssister or brother or Elder brother or sister", we just say "Aburo mi or Egbon mi".

The Originators chose from among them 24 Leaders; 12 Kings and 12 Queens. 12+12=24, 24 Elders of the Bible.
12 Kings and 12 Queens chose for themselves 12 assistance each = 144 chiefs (72 Men chiefs and 72 Women chiefs), Exalted Chiefs in the Quran

Each of the 144 Chiefs, chose 1000 assistance for themselves; 144,000 Judges. 72000 Men Judges and 72000 Women Judges.

Elders--- Chiefs--- Judges = The Knower--- The Thinker--- The Doer = Custodian of the Divine Unity--- Custodian of all universal force and energy--- Custodian of Life (reality manifestation). Which you call Father--- Son--- Holy Spirit (Trinity).

The 24 Elder council has an overall Leader, The Eldest which we all call The Most High. He or She would have total rule for 25,000 years, The next Eldest will take charge for the next 25,000 years. We are in a Patriach rule (Man), He has about 9900 years more to rule before the next Matriach rule (Woman/Queen).

Only Black people have Spirit, Spirit can only sit in the dominant Black genes of Black people. Everything or everybody else are spiritless/Godless.

The God you refer to here are Allah, Jehovah and Yahweh.

The point is what you descibed there has to do with a particular concept of God while the other ones are not touched.

Does the God of a religion that preach against or have no doctrine of sin not relevant or stop been God because it has no sin in it tenet?

If I'm getting you right, you've actually explained God in another aspect different from what the op probably intended.
The op is trying to understand God in a humanic view like, indeed God is a spirit in human form, he's trying to understand God as a being. Not in the idea of love for money, or nature.

I guess you are new to atheism.

Do you know what Anthropomorphism is?

Descibing an entity as human or person is very common in every society. It is nothing new and not wrong
Re: Please, Who Is God ? by johnydon22(m): 5:37pm On Jul 29, 2015
[b]The Word "GOD" is just a noun used to connote many things that are all distinct and unrelated... There are many definitions of what the word God is..

From the dictionary, there are 4 definitions of the word..

God /ɡɒd/
noun
1. (in Christianity, Islam and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of
the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being... A deity.

2. (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as
having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.

3. a greatly admired or influential person...(e.g: Michael Jordan is a basketball God)

4. the gallery in a theatre...

in pantheism.
5. It is used to describe the universe itself...

So Op you can see now that the word is just a noun that means many things, it is left for you to choose the meaning you are banking on from the definitions... The word can also be applied to other things metaphorically but not actually the definitions or related to that thing..

If you are meaning a deity then 1,2 answers you, if you are looking for definitions or uses of that word that is not related to DEITY then 3,4,5 comes to mind.

I knew it!!! The fear of death rears its ugly head again, just as it did in antiquity when the people first decided to follow deities.

That's the origin of the God business: the fear of death. It has now morphed into the most lucrative venture on the planet, dwarfing prostitution in both legality and scope.

You got a point. The fear of death is extremely much in people, yet their religion clearly state "Fear nothing other than God". I must admit however that death or loss is painful. Pain is nevertheless part of life.
