    Appears to me an entirely christian God. What would define God in general. What do pagan Gods have in common with christian Gods?

    No offense intended, but why look at imitations when you have the bona fide? To be sure, there are plenty of knock-offs from which to choose, a veritable smorgasbord to suit any number of tastes. Truth is subject to easy 'cut and paste' treatments these days; however, even these attacks cannot erode its existence.

    God can easily be defined as "A divine being who created the universe" Of course varying religions add more to this answer, but I think it's a pretty good basic structure.

    In polytheistic religions, not all gods were necessarily involved in the creation of the universe.

    There are several standards by which these types of things can be judged.

    1 Corinthians 3:17 - If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

    1 Corinthians 4:20 - For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.

    1 Corinthians 10:13 - There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

    Hebrews 4:12 - For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

    1 John 1:5 - This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

    1 John 4:8 - He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

    1 John 4:16 - And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

    1 John 5:20 - And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
