How? I am one party. God is another. That's two....

I meant that if you and I were dealing with a problem and then asked God to guide us in our decision--that would be asking a magical being for his guidance and relying on what we *feel* a magical being would want us to do. If you are relying on internal guidance to tell you what a magical being would want you to do--you are not making your own decisions. You are making decisions based on what actions you think would make a magical being happy.

Well that's not what I do. I rely on my conscience to conclude problems. Even If I considered my conscience a link to God. I still don't consider God magical as magic is trickery and just because I can't explain or prove everything about God that doesn't mean magic.

To which god do you refer, Zeus, Aphrodite?

RE: I'm losing my un-faith!
You are falling for the lies, hypocrisy, and fast talking-fast questions and appeals to emotion that Ray comfort is extremely good at.

He is especially good at finding the dumbest people he can find by asking dozens, or even hundreds of people in a crowed or a city and editing his video footage to make him look the best possible, or even possibly plant a few Christians who are from his church in there already and make them act out the part of the opposite side.
Trick to not falling for his crap is to see past not his arguments but himself instead.

I don't watch videos too much. Data and battery on phone.

When I'm talking about GOD I'm generally speaking of the One Creator GOD that is referenced in all peaceful monotheistic belief systems. I generally try to not use names to much, just GOD or LORD. You can refer to a lot of things with praise as long as you understand the subsidiary nature of such things to GOD.

*Sigh*

I've asked this question of other people of faith, though I am not expecting a reply from you Pops BUT...

Why is it only one deity?

What puts the 'Mono-' into the theism?

How do you go about assigning a gender to this deity you're sure is 'Out there'?

It's just a puzzle, within a quandary, within a perplexity, within an uncertainty to me.

Consider

I can't believe I never noticed that, before! Facepalm
