Is God Like A Kind Of Giant Octopus?

Is God Like A Kind Of Giant Octopus?

Postby Jephtah » Sat Sep 30, 2017 1:42 am

From what I've learned about the Christian/Jewish/Islamic view of god over the years, I've formed a sort of mental picture of it as rather like some sort of enormous supernatural octopus or squid, the body of which is elsewhere (in Heaven?) but whose tentacles extend down into our mortal world.

Is this a fairly accurate image? I grew up outside of all this stuff, but I try to understand it all the same.

Your mental picture is only accurate in so far as that neither gods nor giant octopuses actually exist.

Why did God send himself so he could scrafice himself to save you from himself? Because he is an octopus....

There are many names for the Only One God, the Eternity. Christians say God. Jewish Say ILAI (Arabic word ILAHI). Muslims say Allah (Who Created you, me and whole universe).

Always Pray the Only One God Allah (Who Created you, me and whole universe), not to the creations.

Prophet Jesus (Peace be upon him) is a creation, not the Creator God. If He is God, "Did He create any? Who took care of the world, when he was here in this world? If He is son of God, who is God's wife?"

Allah Says in Holy Quran

Chapter 4 Verse 32. .... And ask Allah of his bounty. Indeed Allah is ever, of all things, Knowing.

22:73. O people, an example is presented, so listen to it. Indeed, those you invoke besides Allah will never create [as much as] a fly, even if they gathered together for that purpose. And if the fly should steal away from them a [tiny] thing, they could not recover it from him. Weak are the pursuer and pursued.

- WHERE IS GOD? Chapter 50 Verse 16 And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And "WE ARE NEARER TO HIM THAN HIS JUGULAR VEIN" (by Our Knowledge).

Chapter 40 Verse 60. And your Lord says, "CALL UPON ME;I WILL RESPOND TO YOU." Indeed, those who disdain My worship will enter Hell [rendered] contemptible.

37:75. And Noah had certainly called Us, and [We are] the best of responders.

57:27 Then We sent following their footsteps Our messengers and followed [them] with Jesus, the son of Mary, and gave him the Gospel. And We placed in the hearts of those who followed him compassion and mercy and monasticism, which they innovated; We did not prescribe it for them except [that they did so] seeking the approval of Allah....

61:6 And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, "O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad."....

Look Chapter 48 Verse 29 (Because I am not allowed to write more. Y!A says it's too long)

The Holy Quran was Revealed from God Allah [Who Created you, me and whole universe] to Prophet Mohammed by VOICE, through Angel Gabriel, before 1400 years. Later it was written, Since then, there is no change in it's Arabic Origin. You can't find contradictions or a single vulgar word in Holy Quran. Translations may vary. Because they are done by humans. The Quranic Verses are not only for those olden days, they are to follow today and tomorrow. It has many Scientific Proofs.

To learn the Truths, click all the links in Sources, Keep reading until you understand. Get Free books, read all.

To learn about Contradiction & Vulgar in Bible (click 1st in source box), Prophet Mohammed name is mentioned in Old & New Testament Bibles (2nd), Comparative of Religion or ask questions (3rd), Why did they become Muslims (4th), Guinness confirmation about Which religion is growing fast (5th), Why there is no Popes, Bishops, Fathers, Ministers, Monks, Pastors and Nuns in Islam (6th), Churches for SALE (7th), to receive Free Islamic books, Holy Quran, Quran & Science (in your language) (8th),

PROOF OF GOD ALLAH: Holy Quran Chapter 51 Verse 47. With power did We construct the heaven. Verily, We are Able to extend the vastness of space thereof. (This is Scientifically Proofed. Click 9th & Other Scientific Proofs 10th).

CNN: 1.5 Million Converts to Islam Since 9/11.... (Check this in Google, Yahoo or YouTube).

The Only One God Allah (Who Created you, me and whole universe) Says in Holy Quran Chapter 3 Verse 64 :

Say, "O People of the Scripture (Holy Books), come to a word that is equitable between us and you - that we will not worship except Allah and not associate anything with Him and not take one another as lords instead of Allah ." But if they turn away, then say, "Bear witness that we are Muslims [submitting to Him].

(You will be the witness on the "Judgement Day", as I informed you about Islam, the True Path).

God Allah gave you the thinking power. Think again and again. Ask yourself, Why? How? Is there any Scientific Proofs? The Holy Quran has the reply. I can't push you to embrace Islam. You have to realize yourself. Nothing to loose, something to gain for the life hereafter. May Almighty Allah Show you the Right Path.

Allah Says in Holy Quran : Chapter 2 Verse 256. There is no compulsion in religion (Islam)....

Islam is easy, Holy Quran Chapter 2 Verse 185. ..."Allah intends for you ease, and He does not want to make things difficult for you"....

To check: Just say heart fully "Ya Allah" always, even on bed, except in toilet, look the changes in your life after a month.(This has been tested).

REMEMBER

"God is not elevated if you worship Him, and He is not lessened if you don't"

We need to worship god to purify our mind. This will give happiness, joy and bliss.

So when we worship God, please understand that we are doing the greatest favor for ourselves by feeding our weak and ill-nourished spirits by being in contact with the eternal and self-existing almighty power of God. So, when you worship God, you are the beneficiary of worship and NOT God

Human history proves that human beings without focus on God tend to focus on other ... more destructive activities.

No, God isn't weak, and He doesn't need our worship. But He does understand that we're easily distracted and led astray. Because we are weak mortal human beings.
