G - d, G~0~D, G~O~D & Spirit(Pneuma)--not objects to be weighed & measured, but figures of speech...

Led by Pope Francis, has Rome ever attempted to have a phone and internet connection with God?

God, G - d, G~0~D, G~O~D & Holy Spirit (Pneuma)
===========================================
For me, the words above are special and metaphoric words, not to be thought of as words that are commonly used to name people as being concrete subjects and objects which can be weighed and measured like we can measure the idols and statues of ancient gods. In my opinion, they serve as helpful metaphors--that is, as rich figures of speech.

God
! Generally speaking, is the word which those of us who speak and write English use as the name of the Omnipotent, Omniscient, Omnipresent and all-Loving Heavenly Father.

And God is described as if he is a human-like, singular masculine and supernatural being who--spiritually moved upon the waters (surrounding the Cosmos as we know it) in a state of nothing but darkness and chaos--beginning with time and LIGHT! It is believed God created everything out of NO thing, and order out of chaos.

By the way, Orthodox Jews, when they write in English they always write 'god' this way, G - d.
The - dash symbolizes immateriality and spiritual mysteries and values.

G - d--Just one more reminder about your joining our dialogues: About bringing JOY TO THE WORLD & PEACE ON EARTH in 2017:

  • It could be a great worldwide peace-promoting idea. And now is the time to try it. Me? God I would love for you to break your silence; and join the dialogues at wonderCafe2.

HARK! The Herald Angels Sing ...... , sang the choir of heavenly angels. To which certain atheists and agnostics chose to respond by singing: Funny, :ROFLMAO: we don't hear thing! But most of us do love :love: this community-building time of year! And many, including some cynics, responded: AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH....Men!!!!!

Yes, Nabeel, I listened, for nearly 30 minutes, to what you said about the diagnosis of cancer given to you by an MD & a chiropractor
Do figures of speech communicate with people?
Well done, Nabeel!

Do figures of speech communicate with people? you ask. To which I respond: Of course they do--that is, assuming we lovingly agree and keep our Bodies, Minds & Spirits open and willing to listen!

In my opinion, and without thinking of God as any kind of idol, it is God, G - d, G~0~D, & G~O~D & the Holy Spirit (Pneuma)--including especially the spirit of JESUS--as The collective Oneness,
who uses figures of speech to communicate with each and every one of us, as needed, in our own and personal time of need.

In harmony with the spirit of JESUS
read John 10: 34. there, JESUS answered, "It is written in your own LAW (the TORAH) & (Ps 82.6) that God said, "You are gods ... " Over and over Jesus put the emphasis, NOT on having creeds, but on doing DEEDS--on taking moral and ethical actions & the doing of that which is Generous Optimistic and Delightful--that is, being GOD-like.

I think it is Neo who likes John 10:34 because he thinks Jesus was saying we are gods. I don't think Jesus was saying anything like that at all.

What do you think?

God & Family--one with many names, such as God, G - d, G~0~D, & G~O~D, GOD
------------------------------
Yes, God, is the commonly accepted name (a proper non) commonly used by theists--including unitheists & panentheists, which I find quite acceptable.

G - d is the English translation used by Orthodox Jews, when they write in English.


G - d, G~0~D, & G~O~D, GOD & the Holy Spirit (Pneuma)--including especially the spirit of JESUS--as The collective Oneness.

It wasn't actually, it was Abba, which is closer to "Daddy".
God & Family--one with many names, such as God, G - d, G~0~D, & G~O~D, GOD.
================
In my opinion, John 17: 20 to 26--the passage in which Jesus prays, "that they all may be one"(v.21)--comes to my mind as being The very focal point of both Testaments--Hebrew & Christian.
========================================
When, each of us, like Jesus, eventually makes the choice to travel the way of atonement with him and his Spirit to guide us & then are inspired to actually start to live, move and have our very being in the very state of AT-ONE-MENT.
-----------------------------------------------------
All we need to say is this:
Here in the eternal NOW,
We can believe that GOD supplies the very helpful HOW
And we'll be healed in body, mind and spirit. WOW!
So our response, again & again,
Will be a very thank-filled WOW
!

Je Sous appears more like a light struck up between two darks forms dancing slowly ... one like water above .. the other like water below ... and they mingled ... like D'acher and Dance'r ... and some light critter became of it!

But you can't say that in reality where lies are best laid out in scripture ... posing as myths and metaphors of a great spectrum of word ... plural form of spectra ... when the light is mono in form and blinds the separate participants in abstract form ...

Fete Noir, or just a dark veil ... plainly a cover-up for that which the powerful and ugly don't wish to see ... booty of creation? The myth thus grows unseen ... like rye psyche ... naked space? It appears on a cold winter's night ... sometimes 3 days before the spark really ignites between the chitz ... them hearing the impossible goings on up on the roof ...

Few belief in virtue before success ... that true transgression of soul-spirit at the threshold of rest ... sort of mimicking a doorway to something complex (I.E. imaginary realms ... like Egypt)! Can you imagine what bits (chitz) comes north from A free Kahn continent ... watch Victoria Falls in full flood ... it is a Muddy/Moody River ... and the land is refreshed ... green things pop up ... and the sapiens go down ...

Sometimes it is good to look for the subtle things in life ... E'd'm-ists? Creators of Lucretius ... a lesser lucre than gold ... when experienced in lucid dreams ... like after the longest night! Some sloe Dan's may be required ... soldiers stunned by IT? Is it odd what is stored in the less quick to blow ... trivets (tres vites) things for haute pots ... items in flight?

G~O~D is not an object or subject to be weighed & measured, but inspires us to use figures of speech...

Like the sol-spirit connection that is denied by persons believing only in the present, physical thing and sol-spirit are thus in the no-thing zone ... just an ari thought ... what the Celts called Eire? Zero-sum roué as integral! Something that is decree made from nothing? What adolescents do when bored ... punched or reamed by Patros ... am Oasis in the AEgene ... genetic allies?
