Question Everything

When ever I start a new Bible Study Class I encourage them to ask questions. I tell them that the only “dumb” question is the one you have and do not ask. We learn best when we ask questions and we should question everything.

I recently finished a book by Karen Armstrong titled “The Great Transformation – The beginning of our religious traditions” and was flooded with questions. She covered religious and political events in four areas during what she calls “The Axial Age” dating from the ninth century BC to the fifth century AD. The areas are China, India, the Middle East and Greece.

One big question she raised is how do we define the term god? This is a real question about a basic definition – of the term not a particular deity. So I ask you what is your definition of god – little g - ??? leave a comment with yours.


  1. I can't really say I can define God, to me it's my inner faith, a feeling, like an aura? Does that make sense?

  2. It is a religious experience but what I am looking for is a basic definition of the term "god" and really need the feed back on that question.

  3. god - a supernatural being who is multi-dimensional, all-powerful, all-knowing, and present everywhere - and to which appeals can be made for health, wealth and other needs
