God is the image of the ultimate, the image of perfection. God is home to the idea that even when you are capable of doing anything, you still only do what is right (not ...[text shortened]... its own importence. Once you hear, then you won't be asking for such definitions anymore.
So God is "an image", "a metaphor". "a force".
Images can be illusions.
Metaphors do not exist, that is why they are metaphors.
Gravity is a force; so is a push.
Is that all you can come up with?
In your entire paragraph, you have not managed to list one single concrete property of God.
Perhaps this is not surprising, as you believe in the preposterous statement that "world (is) created by human perception ".
Of course the world already exists before we percieve it. We do not bring the world into existence by viewing it.
It is interesting that not one single other Xstian has even attempted to better this feeble effort.
Do you lot have any idea what it is you are devoting your lives to?
