I guess the title says it ! Many people have their own name for God. Two of my mentors call God The All. One of my friends call God The Source. I have a muslim friend who calls God Merciful Allah (always). My Mother calls God Lord. I call God I and I.  BUT WHAT ABOUT YOU ???

Narcissus.

Thomas Paine wrote in The Age of Reason that “Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous execution, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be consistent that we called it the word of a demon, than the word of God."

Whats wrong with just the name "God"?

But for me, I do not believe, and there is no surprise really, considering he is called so many different things, I would rather follow my own instincts and what nature has given me than some entity made up by other men.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

IMO God and Nature are one in the same. Some might not approve of the word God. If you do not believe in a God-like presence then you should not comment

Ooops, sorry. I didn't realise there was an 'invited guest' list!

Sorry about that, you should move this to the religious preaching only section then.........oh wait!!

I tend to think of God more along the lines of "The Force". But then, I'm kind of a Jedi Knight wannabe. :blush:

I don't call anything 'god'. The very term implies a personification of natural processes.

First you ask a question then you proceed to demand that only 'believers' answer.  Obviously you are not interested in anyones answers but only that which coincides with your beliefs.Sorry kiddo this is a forum so you'll be horrified to know that everyone has differing views.
