Making God in Our Own Image
It is written that we are made in God's image, but I've noticed that it goes the other way too, with people making God (or gods) in their own image. And what I mean by that is people tend to describe God is terms of what they think the truth is and what their ideal self would be. So if they are loving, kind and generous, so is their God. If they are angry, judgmental and exclusionary, so is their God. People tend to try to make God in their own image. Now, none of this proves or disproves the existence of God (or gods); it's more a statement on human nature.
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
