Thread: Do you think it odd that your God never acknowledges you? Is that rude?

    See why your analogy is a false one?

    The analogy you provided as a response that's false - and actually has nothing to do with what I said. It's sidelining my comment so you don't have to respond directly to it.

    How can you see something if you do not look? - is the gist of my comment.

    Perhaps God is speaking to you but you aren't listening.
    Thanks from Oberdan

    I don't know about modern Gnostics, but ancient Gnostics had a different view of God based out of the neoplatonists. See the Demiurge, different than the monotheism most people are familiar with.

    Well, there is that usually quiet voice within that most of us mostly ignore.

    The first time I remember hearing it I was 5 or 6 years old.

    I imagine, if you follow the thinking Jesus used to recognize those who love him, that you to would show your love with works and deeds and reciprocity to those show you love. Without those conditions, or the desire to use them, you do not have true love.

    That is why the archetypal Jesus/God said he came to serve and not be served. You might note that Christians have turned Jesus/God the servant to a Jesus/God master when he wants to serve.

    Oh yeah....

    The Roman Church turned Jesus into God just to hide this fact, to create a chasm separating humans from spirit, direct contact with spirit, a chasm only they can bridge, and if they don't bridge it for ya, and you don't do as you're told, it's eternity in conscious pain and torment.

    I suspect that some would argue that it isn't.
    I'll argue this: If God has personality attributes, then what we envision as God has a God, a creator.

    I see all the Gods as having human attributes because we create God as the ideal of humans.

    Without going into supernatural garbage, I cannot think of one attribute for man that is not applied to our plethora of Gods.

    Can you?

    Please define "spiritual garbage."

    I would expect nothing less of you buddy.

    Few, other than all Gnostic Christians, have your honesty.

    The bible has God admitting he is a jealous God which is a human trait.

    No Omni anything. Ok.

    Then why call him God?

    What can be known of the supernatural and how do you access that information?

    I claimed hearing the God I know in the O.P.

    Seems you are not reading or listening.

    "How can you see something if you do not look? - is the gist of my comment."

    I looked and found.
    Those who are idol worshipers of the vile Gods like Yahweh and Allah are the ones who do not look.

    It is G-d speaking in terms humans can comprehend.

    Little if anything - which is precisely the point. We cannot really comprehend what G-d is, because anything within human experience - i.e., the natural - will be insufficient. If a human can understand G-d, then He would not be G-d.
