God is a part of my everyday life. He seems very real and personal to me. I do try to pray and to talk a lot to Him, so perhaps this is why I have found Him to be such a loving and wonderful part of my life.
People seem to have many different perceptions of God. To some, God is just part of nature, in and through everything, but not really personal- not really a "Living" God.
To other people, God is mean and cruel and (to me) seems to be on the lookout for sins of every kind.
I was wondering what you think about this. For you, is God personal or impersonal? If He is impersonal, how do you live without His Love?
Peace and Blessings,

It is not possible to live without God's love for without it, you would not exist. The love of God is unconditional and considering that you are not and never have been separate from God, you are also unconditional love - it is what you are made of. Each being in existence is an expression of God and unconditional love.
In order for God or the One consciousness to fully experience Itself in all the ways that God can experience Itself, it granted each being, each part of Itself, each expression of Itself free will to be and to do whatever it wants to. God loves you so unconditionally that It allows you to believe that you are unloved if you so choose to believe that; that is true unconditional love.
God is and is in all things both personal and impersonal, God is All That Is. God is neither exclusively male nor female but is all genders. That is why I use the terms S/He or It in order to help to loosen the belief and the hold that religious dogma has created throughout His-Story - by preaching that God is

To say that God is impersonal is not to live without His love. In fact I feel it means the very opposite. When we are concerned with the personal, we are caught up in that little sense of me and are concerned only with it's little needs and wants...God is concerned with so much more. In that sense he is not caught up in the personality as he recognizes the divinity in each being beyond the personal.
The Divine that I've come to know encompasses All as One, and although it loves that little me it knows that I am so much more. As white tiger so rightly pointed out the Divine lives in me and I in him.

My personal view is with the idol worshiping of that which some call God. Is wrong. The lack of acceptance of everything. That there is nothing outside "God". If you don't do like we do then you can't believe in "God". Your "God" is not right.

Jai, God only becomes personal to us when we are born again of the spirit. In other words we become conscious of the God within and Gods power. We are aware that God is all and everywhere all the time. Thats when true miracles start to happen in our lives.
When we say God is personal we dont mean that he isn't everywhere and in everything we simply mean we are awake to the God within and comunicate with God regularly. Strange how some will personilise God by giving him human traits. In your case the seeker of sin. Reckognise the fact that you are the one seeking sin within yourself. You can change that if you so wish. If you change that perception to a loveing and forgiving and tolorant God your whole life could change.
Just know that whatever it is you want God wants it for you too no matter if it is right or wrong. Free choice. You gave God the power to seek sin so why not change that and give God the power to seek only the good and the wonderful and see your life blossom.
