God's personality

Yeah. You read right. This is for everything that doesn't have anything to do with Eva.

With the way you're framing this question, you'll never reach a satisfying answer. It simply doesn't exist. You're trying to apply an incredibly human concept like personality upon a being that, in spite of allegedly creating us in their image, couldn't be anymore disparate from our nature. Think about it; God is an omnipotent entity whose actions over the eternity of their existence portray them as something with an infinite capacity to feel every capable "human" emotion, while simultaneously being incapable of sin and being the sole judicator over said sins. Breaking all of that down into a coherent personality is friggin impossible.

Consider how personalities manifest among us humans; through life experiences and social interactions. You should note that personality isn't static, as it fluctuates throughout an an entire lifetime. God, on the other hand, is completely static, despite what you may think upon reading the New Testament. His nature is unchanging, his convictions absolute, and when you you stretch that out over an eternity with all the above caveats (above sin, etc) .... what sort of "personality" are you left with? I'd imagine it's nothing you or I could ever really understand.

I'm not looking for "answers", I'm looking for opinions from a multitude of people, just like the one you gave me. Thank you for giving it, is there anything else you can add to your interpretation of his personality?

The law doesn't protect people. People protect the law. -- Akane Tsunemori, Psycho-Pass
People's deaths are to be mourned. The ability to save people should be celebrated. Life itself should be exalted. -- Volken Macmani, Tatakau Shisho: The Book of Bantorra
I hate myself. But maybe I can learn to love myself. Maybe it's okay for me to be here! That's right! I'm me, nothing more, nothing less! I'm me. I want to be me! I want to be here! And it's okay for me to be here! -- Shinji Ikari, Neon Genesis Evangelion
Yes, I know. You thought it would be something about Asuka. You're such idiots.

In my personal opinion, "God" is whatever we make of ourselves, within ourselves, basically giving us the drive to move forward in life, be it Hope, faith, or whatever can help you enjoy life and push on. I don't really subscribe to any religious doctrine, as humanity is flawed and has a habit of distorting facts and opinions to suit their own needs, so I take religion with a grain of salt.

Yet, I still believe that there is SOMETHING out there that created the existence of the universe, but I'm only a human being with a biological brain with limitations. It's hard to fathom the whole of existence, when all we have are our limited senses.

In a sense, "God" is what we make of it, to give us the will to continue on. :)

Hey Good Sir, thank you for your opinion ^_^ it is very much appreciated, but that isn't the kind of subject I was asking about. This topic isn't about faith, belief, or whether or not he exists. It's simply about what you personally gather about his personality from his interactions with Humanity.

Hate to break this to you, Chaddy, but EGF isn't a Bible study group. Your question is so specific that, if you actually want answers, arbitrarily limiting yourself to a board like this doesn't make any sense.

So on the one hand, this thread is far too limited in scope to have much potential, and on the other, if it actually had broader scope it would be ripe for the lock anyway. I don't really want to see more threads like this popping up, either, so... yeah. That settles that.
