What Christians mean by “God”.


I don’t normally make this blog a forum for my religious beliefs, but I just heard this Priest say this on a PBS show and was impressed with his eloquence and intelligence.

  1. Hmmm, that’s not only a Christian belief but ANYONE who believes in ‘God’ or a superior creator / entity thinks this way about their ‘God’.

    Of course, people who follows a specific religion fails to recognize this, as they think that everyone else’s view of ‘God’ is different from theirs. That is normal though, just like Patriotism is the belief that your country is superior to any other simply on the account that you were born in it.

    I am not religious, but I do believe in a ‘God’… but to me, it is the Universe. Not a being or entity or human or anything… but EVERYTHING. 🙂

    1. That sounds like pantheism, and it’s pretty easily distinguished from other theologies. Christianity would hold God to be the SOURCE of everything, not just the net sum of all that is.
