Is your God your color?

Is your God your color?

Student Asks Sadhguru What Is God? - YouTube

I am not racist, but if your God is not your color, you are not thinking of God properly.

Gnostic Christians name their God, I am.

Are you that enlightened?

When you say your colour, what exactly do you mean?

I mean are you referring to the colour of your skin?

Or the colour of your eyes?

Or the colour that really suits you, as in 'Oh my god, purple, purple is my colour!'?



I am really curious as to your answer but I suspect your response to be terribly supercilious along the lines of :'yes'

Well, there's a bit of truth behind all the waffle. People do tend to project themselves on to their god or gods. Kind of like how rednecks depict extraterrestrials as livestock-tormenting, butt probing oddballs.

I suppose so? But also not. Because if there is an omnipotent being who created all of humanity and the cosmos, I'd imagine they can appear as any race, species, gender (or lack thereof) that they wish to appear as for whatever purpose that may serve.

I don't think gnostic christian actually believes in an omnipotent or omniscient god.

I suspect it is something more like this:

Sure, they could, but if we're talking about how human beings depict their gods then, they picture them as looking like them. Most depictions of gods, pagan, Hindu etc look like representatives from the local population.
There aren't many statues of the Abrahamic god, but a lot of the depictions that do exist as with renaissance art, he looks like the old white dudes who were running the church and the aristocracy back then, that or borrowed features from Zeus or Jupiter.

In the end this was just a weird drive by. Unless of course GC started taking his anti-psychotics or less likely stopped smoking big chunks of crack.
