Is God a verb or a noun? I don’t know, do you? A verb is an action word, seeing, being etcetera. A noun is the name of a person, place or thing.
To call God a thing is to objectify him, so I’ll skip that one. Place? Well, I haven’t been there. Person? Personally speaking, I don’t know.
God is perfection, which is said to be impossible on Earth. Without a miracle. Miracles are impossible, by definition. Therefore, God is impossible, on Earth. Without a miracle.
Some believe in miracles, but there is no accounting for belief. The fact that one or more people believe something does not make it true, whatever truth is.
God is truth, what is the truth of God? That he is the truth. Truth is a quality. That much we can agree on.
Is truth a quantity? By definition, no. If God does exist, dictionaries will have to be rewritten. Who is up to the job? Samuel Johnson is dead.
However, as lawyers like to say, the existence or nonexistence of God is hypothetical. Lexicographers, relax.
Whether God exists is open to question. The truth is undeniable, that truth is denied. That keeps lawyers in business. Truth itself is not in question.
If God exists is he the personification of truth? You tell me. God, if he exists, is beyond the comprehension of man. Well, this man anyway.
If I talk about God without understanding him can I reasonably be said not to know what I’m talking about? Yes. But I won’t let that stop me.
Assuming for a moment that God exists, he is infinite. I am finite. May the finite comprehend the infinite? No.
As a person who doesn’t know what he’s talking about I presume I may be allowed to speculate. Quality is not quantifiable.
God is spirit, quality, truth, goodness itself and infinite, therefore unmeasurable, unquantifiable. So I believe. There is no accounting for belief. People may believe whatever they choose to believe. And do.
God also is love. Okay, I was more or less joking in part here, but that’s just me. What do you expect, a miracle?
