THE INFINITE GOD AND THE PERSONAL GOD
There are two concepts of God, the Personal God and the Infinite, all knowing, present everywhere God. There is no place that God is not. God is not masculine
In the world human society, there are two concepts of God. One is a Personal God who is represented by Yahweh in Judaism, Jehovah in Christianity, Allah in Islam. In Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism there is no emphasis on a Personal God.
A Personal God is one who is like a super human being, an anthropomorphic entity that rules heaven and earth and has a purpose, intent, emotions and so on just like human beings.
The Infinite God is indescribable, indefinable and inconceivable. In Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Hinduism, the Personal God is given these all-knowing and omnipotent qualities but without the consideration that any description of God, is a limitation on God. God as The Infinite Potential is beyond description and without limitations. Any description or definition of God is a limitation on God and is therefore not the true God.
The Infinite God is the potential of all things and has no beginning and has no end. The Infinite God is the Infinite Potential that forever manifests those potentials and forever disintegrates those manifestations. The only two constants of the Infinite God are Change and Infinite Diversity.
The Infinite God is like the ocean. The ocean is a vast body of liquid that manifests shellfish, fish, mammals, plants and so on. It really has no preference of one manifestation over another. It is all things. It is at one
with all things. All things within the Ocean are at one with the Ocean.
When atheists reject the concept of God, they are really rejecting the concept of a Personal God. To reject the Infinite God, the Infinite Oneness, is like a fish denying the existence of the Ocean.
The Infinite God is called "The Way" in Taoism, "Brahma" in Hinduism and "Dhammakaya" in Buddhism. The Personal God of Judaism, Christianity and Islam is referred to as also being the Infinite God and yet the emphasis is on the Personal aspects of God.
When one embraces the Infinite God, one understands that there is no difference between the Personal Gods. All races, religions, nations, and both sexes are distinct but at one with the Infinite God. All is One. All are One.
There is no harm in embracing a Personal God as long as that Personal God does not encourage intolerance of others and consequently become the harbinger of prejudice, hatred and injustice within the world human society. A Personal God that advocates elitism among its worshipers, who excludes humans from its realm rather than is all inclusive, excludes even one human being on earth, is in the final analysis a harbinger of pain and suffering within the world human society and an antagonist to the manifestation of WorldPeace.
Hindus do not have many Gods, they have many Jesuses, Avatars. Buddhist call them Bodhisatvas.
Inner Peace comes with the understanding there is a difference between the limited and infinite aspects of God, the Personal God and the Infinite God.
