God in many aspects or just one? [Aug. 30th, 2005|10:46 pm]

hello, I recently joined this community and would like to open up a topic of discussion.
How can people only see one aspect of God if God is indefinite and all-powerful and huge? How can we even claim to know all the aspects of God, to know all of God? How can we as measley humans think that is possible? I don't think we can lable God into only three parts and that's it, there's always going to be more to learn about God, and some of it probably won't fit into one of those parts of God that is supposedly all of God. But if labeling God into three specific parts really confining Him to these aspects? No, of course not, God will do and be whoever He wants to be. However, it might confine the way we look at God, which I really don't like people doing. I cannot fathom the full extent of God, so how can we think we can fathom Him as only one of our beings? He is certainly more than that in all the ways we don't see it.
i used He as a pronoun for God, yes yes i know gender specific=bad, but it's just easier, i don't know the gender of God, i was just calling it a Him, would you prefer it or him/her or ...?
this is my opinion on the topic, what's yours?

oh and...

ecclesia_verus is a new community dedicated to knowledge based on the judeo-christian paradigm. it touches into prophecy, the end times, and gives deep insight about the teachings of the holy bible and how they pertain to modern day life. no matter who you are or what path you claim, join if you're interested in learning more about why over half of the earth's population is dedicated to this one doctrine!
