Man Made God In His Own Image?

Like father like son?

I believe that god is man-made.

In worshipping god, man is suffering his own sin in his own self-judgement. He is a victim of himself.

The religious are imprisoned by doctrine. It is a reflection of their own intolerance and wish to indoctrinate other people.

The religious fear the god they have made. It is a reflection of the fear they wish to instill in other people through their doctrine.

I dont like using the word 'god' because I dont much about its origin, I fear the sinister motive of white people I prefer to use Creator/Maker

I believe strongly in a creator but surely not those crap written in the bible as 'god', its ambigious saying there's isn't a creator even though the arguments sounds very logical the arguments I see and read about the existence of god isnt so strong but I feel what I read and watch in astronomy makes my belief about a designer/designers very sensible.

I said designers (plural) because logically its difficult to think only one being could do all these take a car for example the battery made in japan, the steering made in china etc. I know something for sure no one knows everything perfectly but in death theirs full and perfect understanding no one can be sure about any thing in this life as living humans.

Why is god a "HE"?Does that not suggest that god was made by man who simply projected "himself" into his creation?If god had been created by woman, we would've had to use the "she" pronoun, no?

Believe in God has nothing and I repeat nothing to do with religion! I believe in God and I know one thing for sure he NEVER CREATED any religion

Like most 'means to an end', it is a means to a short-sighted end.

Logic, truth and fallacy are mortal artefacts reflecting limited comprehension. 'Infinite' comprehension has no logic.

Men most definately created all the gods in their own image and likeness, read all the books that the gods "inspired" men to write and you will see that it is nothing more than the wishes, aspirations and thoughts of men and nothing more. . . . .The god concept is good actually because it is a means to an end, It feels good, because you feel like something greater and loving is taking care of you and protecting your future. It fills you with false confidence. Men created all the gods because of its benefit, The one benefit of being faithful is that often your positive thoughts do translate into positive actions sometimes and those actions have positive benefit. . . . . . . If a person fearlessly faces a disease and treatment because they have faith that God is guiding the process, it could reduce their worry and increase their positive actions. But for those of us that do not believe in all these myths we know that good results are more likely to follow positive actions.

Sinnequanon -

I think you should distinguish between Religion and God.

The very glaring fallacies of religion in no way obviate the logical consistency of the existence of a First Cause and Prime Mover - which is what God is.

You lack peace. I have peace.

You seek 'salvation' from yourself. I don't.

You have an emptiness inside you. I don't.

You don't know love because you don't know how to love.

That is the difference. That is why you made your god.

You are right, religion is man made in his search for a god. There is no salvation in religion. But God is not man made. God made man and you know it even if you openly deny it, there is a part of God in you crying to be filled with the love of God. God is not a terror. We are not afraid of God . God is love, he is the answer to the emptiness you have on the inside. You may deny God's existence but You know there is God.Deep inside you know.

Romans 1:20-21

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: [21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Jesus didnt bring religion, he brought life.

John 10:10

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

1 John 5:11-12

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. [12] He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

When you embrace God's love for you, the joy and peace you've always desired will come to you.
