I can't say how many god there are but you rightly expressed a very high number. People try to make many things their gods like...wood, metal, concrete, gold, silver, money, status quo, actor/actresses, position, people's approval, musicians, sex, drugs, SELF, etc. But are any of these things naturally God?
If everyone was assigned a god at birth, complicated wouldn't begin to describe it. God is not the author of confusion and that scenario would be sheer chaos and confusion. To me, it is not about one God being better than the other. If one has something good, sharing it is just the caring thing to do. The relationship between best-friends is unique. In looking for someone I would consider as a best-friend, I would need to know that the person has my best interest at heart, not just their interest alone. We would be able to talk about everything with no judgment but opinions, advice, experience. When I mess up my best-friend would tell me, not to be mean but so I can make corrections because I am accountable for my own actions. The direction of life my best-friend wants to share with me should not include death or anything that can kill, steal or destroy me. A relationship with God reveals who He really is and His intentions; just as a relationship with a best-friend reveals who they are and their intentions. I know without doubt that many things people make into their gods can not offer what is basically good them or their life because the end result is not good.
So in a nutshell, you are claiming your god is better than theirs. Ironic your post is in response to that accusation. You just proved Q. right on target.

In heaven, we will not be as we are now.
Presently, we are mind, body (plus spirit for those who have accepted Jesus Christ). After death, one remains in an incorruptible body.
OK, now can you answer my question? Can a person change his mind in heaven. You can just say yes or no.

Not true the OT mentions the Spirit of God hovered above the waters,does not say God ,says his Spirit.... Clear that up for me if you will....
The phrase is translated as 'great wind'. It's merely an element of god. What is there to suggest it is a separate incarnation?

Explain the meaning of this
"Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son's name if you know?"
I just did. It's a rhetorical question.

<quoted text>When you cut and paste with no credit to the actual author, you are plagiarizing.
Nothing said here shows me as wrong. You have still failed to show what I said that is of a double standard. What am I guilty of? Try backing up your accusations for a change.
You are back to your tactic of being evasive.
Your double standard emanates from the fact that whenever I stated that God was eternal and needed no creator you aways wanted to know who created God?
My beliefs were said to be Magic, superstition and delusional.. Now,like " preK" you have been forced to think that energy is eternal for the simple reason that energy can not be created by natural means...
So you are left with 2 choices , either energy was created by a supernatural power, which you have described as magic and superstition Or that energy is a supernatural power and needs no creator.
So , that which you mocked you now have to accept as valid...
Of course you will conjure up an irrational excuse in orderf to justify your illconceived beliefs ,, However the facts and your postings confirm your double standard.
To you,supernatural exists as a matter of convenience....
Since you have claimed that God needs a creator , then maybe you can explain who created energy,,,,Or better yet, why does energy not need a creator?
Does energy posses the ability to self exist and create , is it alive ,conscious and intelligent.
And if it isn't, how was it able to bring life, intelligence and consciousness into existence?
Reemember , the effect can not be greater than the cause.
Since you are a Science addict , please explain yourself in Scientific terms , not ill conceived excuses and STRAWMAN arguments

<quoted text>The idea of eternal energy defies no scientific principles. It is why it thought to be likely.
Energy is not supernatural. Just because it is not fully known how life came to be, it does not mean the energy was magic. Again you simply insert magic to anything that is not known. It is surely how your god was invented. The ancients did not know much science, so they invented gods to put into the gaps. You are doing the same.
You are dancing aroud like a chiucken with his head cut off and conjecturing up ill conceived and irrational arguments
A reasonable person who knows that energy can not be created by natural means is left with only 2 conclusions , It was either created bu supernatural means or it posseses the power to exist of it's own accord ., has life within itself,,,,That is not supernatural ?
I did not insert magic , YOU did... So it is not known how energy came to be, yet you claim it to be eternal and not needing a creator.
So, mindless ,nonintelligent ,nonliving and nonconscious energy can only convert itself into matter..However , according to your beliefs, once converted to nonliving,nonintelligent and nonconscious matter, it has the ability to convert/create this matter into living,intelligent and conscious matter....
However ,it has been established that energy can ONLY be converted, it has no ability to create.....
That is the Science fiction that holds your faith together, for which you must conjure up irrational excuses in an attempt to hold it together.....You must have seasons tickets to Walt Disneys magical kingdom.....

Revelation tells us that "the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters" will be thrown into the lake of fire. Sounds like plenty of mankind are going to be tortured.

Yet it was God himself who introduced sin into the world of Adam and Eve by putting the greatest supervillain in the universe into the Garden of Eden.

God has dealt with it through Jesus Christ...and life is free to all.
If sin needed to be dealt with then why deal with it by plotting and scheming to have your son killed? An omnipotent god could eradicate sin by snapping his fingers.

No deceptions regarding God....the good, bad and the ugly were shared in the accounts of the Bible.
If one wanted to deceive, why not just tell the good stories and ditch all the bad ones...?
The Bible itself tells us how God deceived people.

Deception is usually associated with the devil, but no less a person than Jeremiah, one of the great biblical prophets, attributes deception to God.

" Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! surely thou hast greatly deceived this people and Jerusalem, saying, Ye shall have peace; whereas the sword reacheth unto the soul."

You been posting that pig slop for quite a while ..Your opinions are worthless and invalid.
You now claim that energy is eternal, you had no choice as your faith has you contradicting your self ..You now believe in the supernatural , which you once claimed was Magic and superstition....
The fruits of atheism, contradiction of your faith..........
Much like your " British Heritage" where Tea is King and you claim to be a coffee drinker.
I am not going to ask you for the time , instead I will tell you what time it is.
It is time you got lost and take your gibberish with you...
As they say in London ; Good riddance to bad rubbish
It's plain to see that it annoys you.

That's why I saved it to make it easy to just paste it in everytime you try and elevate the biblical creation myth above any of the many other creation myths.

<quoted text>We are energy and matter that can come from energy. We do resemble energy.
You are claiming we now believe in the supernatural if we believe energy is eternal. So it seems to me you are claiming energy must be supernatural. If not, then explain.
And rambling on and on is not helping you at all.
Energy is either supernatural or was created by supernatural means. It certainly was not created by nature according to Science.
So if I were an atheist and knew that energy can not be created by natural means, then I would conclude
1) Energy was created by supernatural means or
2) Energy is eternal , preexisted the creation of the universe ,is outside of time and spacehas life within itself and needs no creator ,
That makes it Supernatural.
unable to be explained by science or the laws of nature : of, relating to, or seeming to come from magic, a god, etc.
That is the Gordian Knot your faith has tied you up with

So now ,you can dance around the campfire and see how you atheists , because of your unbelief, have inserted magic as part of your faith.....
The facts are there, but atheists can not face them and need to contradict their beliefs in order to attempt to defend their faith.....
Now explain to me again,in scientific terms , why do you believe energy to be eternal.
I don't believe in magic, I believe God is eternal

Well , you better have a long conversation with your atheist scientists and tell them how they are WRRRRRRRRRRRRONG .. Laws of nature says energy can not be created only converted.

Your contradictory faith has you now proclaiming your belief in the supernatural and eternal

No the basic Big Bang theory requires no outside source as it does not indicate that there is any such thing as Outside the universe...

"YES! there is an alternate universe... the One God Lives in!"
