|Who Is God? by Deo1986(m): 4:00pm On May 25, 2019|
"He is the creator of heaven and earth". This is the common answer one gets from members of the Abrahamic faith (Judaism, Christianity , Islam), when that question is posed to them but, are they right? Is there one supreme creator? What is his/her origin? Where does he/she lives? Did he/she actually created all things? Does he/she have a name? These and many more questions will be treated in series, every week. So, follow as i take you on a guide into the very origin of spirituality. RELIGION is as old as man, every tribe on earth had their mode of worship, be it god or goddess, the concept of unifying people under one god began with the Romans after Emperor Constantine had embraced a sect known as christians, a dissent arose among people of other religion when Consttine declared christianity to be the state religion, to appease them, he gathered over 1500 scholars all over the Roman empire to form the version of christianity we have today. This was not accepted by the christians because a lot of their beliefs were either changed or modified, and so they were persecuted and many of them were killed.... What was changed? These and many more questions to come will lay the groundwork in our search for god.. Next week.

God is neither a 'he' or a 'she'. I can see from your question that you've only succeeded in asking about the gods and not God Almighty.

Point of correction, Emperor Constantine created Christianity.. He wanted a single religion for his empire and gathered clergy from every belief in Nicea... They argued, and argued for almost 3 years... There is nothing divine about Christianity..
The purpose was to find the relationship between father Enki and Lord Marduk.... It was Athanasius who stood up and said he was both God and man to satisfy both camp.. The gospel stories comes from ancient tales about marduk.... Only that marduk did not die as there was no need to..
The Lord of the old testament is Marduk.. The lugal dimmer ankia which means the divine king of heaven and earth..

God is the personification of totality of the consciousness of the universe fully embodied not a man or human being or genie that grants wishes or a Jewish man up in the sky....

God is what man came up with to explain the world they lived in and give their life meaning.

God is the perfect placeholder for saying "I DON'T KNOW"
