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?

Re: God

i do believe i'm living out that dream
you think God would stop someone from assassinating a mortal who "has a dream where little white girls and little black girls..."? ...that didn't really work for martin luther king jr. but ok

Re: God

But what if that assassination intensifys his message?

Did that not happen?

What if his full reason for living was lived out

Re: God

but wasn't your point that ur mortal wouldn't get killed b/c the mediatary stepped in? or was it that this mortal's point in life wasn't fulfilled at the point of a planned assination but MLK JR's was, so it was ok?

Re: God

"Lets say we have a mortal and he said I have a dream where little white girls and little black girls... hed get assassinated
if theres a mediatary thats invisible it makes it tough to get at him"
