  • God is a title given to His supernatural being for Elohim in Hebrew. God’s presence is real, full of love and completely transformational. Romans 1:19-20 "For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse."

      There is no legitimate evidence that ANY god exists. No matter how much you want it to be true, there is NO EVIDENCE. Grow up!
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Oh really? Why waste your energy then if there is no legitimate evidence for any gods?
    • Linus van Pelt
      Do some research yourself and see what Simon Greenleaf, the guy who wrote the book on evidence, has to say about it.
    • Jenny Rizzo is brilliant ⭐
      Linus, Chicagoan is an Atheist. He or she is too lazy to look for evidence.
  • That is a question that has remain unanswered for the entirety of human history. There is no answer to prove either position in this debate.
  • I know that many churches teach that God is a spirit, but I will answer from the perspective of a Latter-day Saint. * * * * * The Church of Jesus Christ has always taught that God is not *just* a spirit, but rather a glorified Person of flesh and bone. God obviously *has* a spirit, but as a glorified Being, the spiritual part of His body is inexorably tied to the what we generally call the “physical” part of His body, just as His Son, Jesus Christ, demonstrated after His Resurrection. * * * * * Of course, this obviously doesn’t prove that God exists—the “proof” of that comes by other means—but it does mean that, at least according to the Church of Jesus Christ, this question is inherently flawed.
  • we wont know til we are dead and then probably wont know then lol
  • Well I'm not a person that wants to find out the hard way there's too many good things in the written word of God to enjoy doing the bad things they don't bring anything fun that lasts sure they're fun for a little while and then you die! For the most part I don't want to die in the middle of doing something bad I don't want to take that with me as my legacy when I die I want to die with some kind of respect
  • Very possible that He/She doesn't exist.
  • Your own thinking and willing stops you from experiencing God. When you stand still from the thinking and willing of self, when both your intellect and will are quiet, your soul will rise up above the temporal and the imagination and senses locked up by distraction, then the eternal hearing, seeing and speaking will be revealed IN you, and God will hear and see through you, now being the organ of God's spirit. Since it is your own hearing and willing that hinder you so you do not hear God, how do you hear God if he is above Nature and creature? When you are silent you are as God was before nature and creature, you are what God then was, you will then hear and see how God did in you, before your own willing and seeing began. What hinders you? Your own hearing, will, and seeing. Because you strive against God's will, seeing and hearing, with your own willing and understanding, you separate yourself. Your will makes you deaf towards God. Your own thinking on terrestrial things and that outside you, brings you to a ground that you lay hold of and captivated in nature, and binds you from experiencing God. This is why Christ in the flesh humbles himself and makes himself nothing so he can receive the fullness of God, making himself one with the Father on earth doing his will. "The kingdom of God is within you." Your body is the temple of God, which is why it is to be holy, as your Father is holy. Man must be of the earth and of the spirit. You must crucify the flesh and the will of the flesh, as Christ did by accepting Christ and dying to self, so letting God's spirit work "within you."Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

      "Your own thinking and willing stops you from experiencing God." Correction: no gods exist - THAT is why you don't experience any gods.
    • Creamcrackered
      I have experienced God, but again your own ego, self, is in the way, this is the message the mystics have given throughout time. This is why Christ humbled himself in Philippians 2, in order to have the fullness of God. So if you do not believe in God, where did you get your belief from, your knowledge of atheism? Because atheists do believe in something, and what is the meaning of life to you?
  • If God is no more important to you than "just a name", then you need to pause and reflect on a few things in life.
  • God is not only a spirit. Saint john says there is nothing that is made without God. That God is the true one God. However there are other deities too. Ghosts are not true God.
  • Since God is just a name given to a spirit, does that mean God may not really even exist? First, God is not a name, it is a title, just like Judge, Dad or Son. A title is one or more words used before or after a person's name, it may signify either generation, an official position, or a professional or academic qualification. (According to Wikipedia) As far as the existence of God, that is a personal opinion. I am convinced that there is a God and He has a name, the Bible at Psalms 83;18 say's; That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth.KJV... That they may know that thou alone, whose name is Jehovah, Art the Most High over all the earth.ASV... And know it is you alone that are named Jehovah, on high over all the earth.Byington... May people know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth. NWT... if you would like more information on this or any other Bible topic please login to the free web site, JW.org
  • First: "God" is not a name. Like any noun, when capitalized it is a proper noun and (as commonly in English, so also in this case) the proper noun acts as a title. So: "god" (any deity), "God" ("the god"), and for similar examples: "boss" (any boss), "Boss" ("the boss / my boss"), "vicar" (any vicar), "Vicar" (the vicar / my vicar), etc. *** Your reasoning is also unsound. For example: "the Sun" is just a name given to our star. Does that mean that the Sun might not really exist? No. The fact that something is given a name has no relevance to whether or not it exists. Many things exist that don't have names, and many things that do have names don't exist. Naming by itself does not indicate existence or non-existence.
