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 ???

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.

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

The White Light of Love and Service (or just Service for short).

God is The White Light which always gives..

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

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.
