What is God? - A beginning of thoughts

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

This blog entry is a ... of my thinking about writing an article about what God is. That article will be found here.

When I was first asking myself this question, I could almost imagine myself asking, "What is the chemical makeup of God?" Of course, instead of chemicals, the components would be such things as "Love" and "Spirit", etc. Another question might be "What is the basic function and purpose of God? and yet another question might me, "What is God in reality, OR What is God in the minds of each of us, or in each religion.

Are we even capable of defining and knowing what God truly is? Or would the question more properly be asked, "What do I mean when I use the term God"? So, I need to consider what the focus of this article to be. Should be directed towards explaining what God truly is, OR should it be directed towards what I mean when I speak of God?

If I start with the Question of "What is God", then what will be my source material? My own thoughts and reasonings? My Experience? The writings and thoughts of others?
