A supernatural entity humans have invented - under many names - with many human characteristics, that these same humans attribute many paternal parental traits to - some have invented vengeful Gods - others, compassionate, loving Gods. There have been thousands of Gods - over time - a new God is invented - some promise to make humans Gods and give them their own planets when they die, others promise endless celestial sex with Goddesses to populate planets, but the goal is always to please the God to get something in return - in this life or the human invented afterlife - which is usually co-invented with the God. Each God has a rule set humans must obey to be in favor with this invisible non-existent entity - the rules, also invented by "specially chosen men" - are typically attributed to a dictation setting between the imaginary God and the human that claims contact with him (Gods are usually males). Those rules become the "dogma" of the particular belief system that grows from them, forming a specific religion. Almost always, monotheism threatens its human supplicants with banishment or infinite torture should the believer entertain belief in another God or non-belief in the supernatural. Humans are a superstitious species - when humans evolved to comprehend their own mortality - they created religion. Religion is also useful as a balm to soften other harsh realities of existence - inequalities, disease, famine, plagues, wars, terrestrial destruction events, and existential loneliness - which can be nearly intolerable to humans - which is why humans, no matter how isolated, will always have been found to have invented two things: God(s) and alcohol.
God is the guy who always ignores you, & who never fails to work in utterly ineffective, but breathtakingly cruel ways!! And, God is the chap upstairs, who ought to be executed for crimes against humanity.
God is the only one who can say, " be that I be." God is pure existence, self-existent, and the source of everything else that possesses existence. He is the only necessary being, is purposeful/personal, and possesses both unity and diversity. God is also love. He invites you to seek Him and discover the love He has for you in His Word and in the life of His Son Jesus Christ, the one who died for your sins and made a way for you to live with Him for eternity.
A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality). (John 4:23, 24 AMP)
God is not there. An illusion. Delusion. A grand self deception built of ignorance and purported because its an effective tranquilizer of critical thinking and so with it cognitive dissonance. God is the illusion that the hell you live in is only temporary and serves to stifle efforts to make otherwise. 'God' allows you to lie to yourself and others without guilt and in fact encourage a sense of self righteousness. 'God allows your to be totally wrong and feel like you are doing something good. God is a nonexistent divine commander that claims that he alone has morals to give to the people and that anyone who does not take his ultimatum on faith is worthy of the worst imaginable torture in place of everlasting life to those who agree to the bargain. He is the dehumanizer and he's a demon in disguise purporting lies to the credulous. He stands to ruin the world and rewrite history. He is the disdain of logic and the herald of war.
