TonyK What does the word 'God' mean to you? (107* d) RE: What does the word 'God' mean to you? 15 Jan 01


I think the god as I used to understand him was a creation of someone long ago just as the ancient gods of Rome and Greece, etc. I like the concepts of 'Great Mystery' that is attributed to Native Americans, and "God beyond the word god", attributed to a theologian I studied in school and can't remember his name. Maybe Whitehead, maybe Tillich.

I suppose blind faith works for some but it caused me a lot of problems. It didn't fit for me and it took a long time for me to realize that I'm not completely blind (or maybe I am). In any case, I'm doing the best I can and trying to be open minded about it.

I agree it is a positive reflection on this group that we are able to discuss this.

I'm reading "Ishmael" by Daniel Quinn and find it fascinating.
