What if God was one of us?

This week’s classic threads begings with the quote: “What if God was one of us?”

I know this isn’t the place, but…

For me, one of the most powerful things about Christianity is the fact that he WAS.

Instead of simply judging from on high, Jesus actually came down and “walked a mile in our mocassins.”

This, of course, assumes that one believes that Jesus is God. I do. Many of you don’t. Neither of us will be convinced otherwise in this forum, so we’ll just leave it at that.

I always thought that Jesus was the son of God. Maybe I was learned wrong. But if God was one of us who would he be? Might he be a woman? :slight_smile:

I am not weird, I’m just normle challenged.

I really like that song.

Work like you don’t need the money…
Love like you’ve never been hurt…
Dance like nobody’s watching! …(Paraphrased)

I HATE that song! God was human, but He was NOT “one of us.” Know what I mean? Jesus is God. So, while He was human, and shared our emotions, pains…etc, He was not like ANY of us. Or, I should say, that none of us, are even close to Him. He never sinned, and was perfect. Can any of you say the same about yourselves? Did I mention how I abhore that song!?!


“Life is hard…but God is good”


If God was one of us, the paparatzi would never leave him alone

I always like the perfect phrase as pertaining to God. Gives rise to the age old question, how can someone (something)z perfect create something imperfect?

So, according to someone here, WE are not like GOD? Isn’t that contrary to christian believe? Don’t christians say that we were made in his image?

Anyways, in order to help Nickrz keep this thread in GQ, I’ll say no more.

But if God was one of us… Man! He/She’d be hiding!

Men will cease to commit atrocities only when they cease to believe absurdities.

I think what Adam is trying to say is summed up in the Hebrew translation of the Archangel Michael. * Mi-cha-el * “Who Is Like Unto God?”

“…send lawyers, guns, and money…”

Kid_G - If you know “this is not the place” then please try to determine “where is the place?” before plunking a comment on Cecil’s column into GQ.

The place, of course, is “Comments on Cecil’s Columns.”
