Where and how do you seek God? Or are you an idol worshiper?

There are so many Gods and Goddesses in forums today that these places begin to look as in the days of Babel. Two camps do seem to be forming though. Those who seek on the left and and those who have found on the right.

Which camp are you in?

If you seek God, where are you looking?

If you have found your God, please supply a name. Show me yours and I will show you mine.

Regards
DL

P.S. Gnosis is knowledge that leads to wisdom. Wisdom is Sophia in our myths. She has faith in you finding her. Thank God Eve ate and Adam had the good sense to do as told and eat as well.

I don't seek. I just live, and I observe the world and my own life, and I see what I see.

I used to seek god.

The search started in a "holy book"...then expanded from there.

It was an exercise in futility.

Seeking god is like looking for yourself in a massively crowded room where no one can even move... or looking for yourself in a massively expansive wilderness.

yeah, my God is ... what He is.
You can't see Him, in the 'show me yours' sense.
*** I guess I'm on both sides -- on the right, because I have found Him, and on the left because there is a continual seeking to learn more, know more.

Not super-religious, really, but believing, trusting, and having faith works for me.

His name? Yah-weh.

I agree. But as you imply, we have to start somewhere...

Just to add, as "God" would be Being itself (in which we live and move and have our being), to think we have "found" God is to have found a being, and thus an idol.

" Or are you an idol worshiper? "

As in a Catholic church or what ?
I'm not Catholic but you may be referring to this.
Some folks have statues of saints that represent their beliefs not necessary idols.

Idols are things that you worship. Those little statues and things that you pray to aren't the only things that are idols. What about money? Sex? Power? Self?

The single most important thing to you is your idol.

I'm no idol worshiper. I haven't watched that show since Ruben Studdard became the sweatiest person to ever win. Plus Paula's gone, so...
