    All are distinct entities which somehow make up the greater nature of one complete being.

    How exactly all of this works is completely beyond me. I'm pretty sure that I just completely butchered the explanation I provided above anyway.

    I believe these are probably the best explanations I've heard. If God were limitless you could never pin down one creature, sex, source, point, form or description for a being that clearly encompasses all and more. How do we as limited creatures recognize the infinite and define it?

    I remember a person saying to me once "I see no God what is this being to me" and I said "God is your life". The Hebrew name for God was "Ehyeh asher ehyeh" literally translates as "I am that I am" or "I Will Be What I Will Be". Who, what and where God is a mystery yet to be revealed but the answer is not outside you.

    When Moses asked God his name he answered, "I am that I am." When Moses asked his name again, God replied, "never mind who I am." Apparently God didn't want to reveal his true nature by attributing a name to it. This leaves God wide open for interpretation and interpret the prophets of the bible did. So depending on which book you read, there is a wrathful God, a venegeful God, a jealous God, a prankster God, a merciful God, a loving God, etc. Obviously, each prophet in the bible experienced God differently. Which suggests that God can be whatever you want him/her to be.

    Of course, at the time God was 100% man.... If he was 100% man then how can be he God?

    Please tell me where in the Bible it says Jesus is God.... (hint, it does not... the concept of the Trinity is a creation of man... used to try to define God)

    Nothing because it simply doesn't exist. The concept of God was created long ago and used as a means of thought control. The world (or universe for this matter) doesn't revolve around good and evil. The concept of an afterlife was a reason for the thought control. Be good or in the next life you burn for all eternity (because apparently we're on a trial run in this life and our next is somehow eternal).

    Re: Is God male or female?

    God is the union of opposites. That which transcends the polarity we represent, in our gender designation. Gender is inapplicable. For whatever reason, God decides that we should reflect a duality that precludes our own elevation to godhood, while being the embodiment of a complementarity that describes it. At once process and product. A cynic might deem it punitive, though my understanding of suffering is one of refinement. The expansion of soul in the crucible of strife.

    It's not that God has no gender, but that He's beyond such limitation.

    This is one of the most profound statements I've read in my lifetime.
