I would like to ask someone who believes in God ...
If you believe in God, does God believe in something?
If so, what?
If you say His/Her/Its beliefs are set forth in the Bible, Qur'an, Vedas, Talmud or other text, does that mean such works encompass all that He/She/It believes?
If not and if the beliefs unstated remain unknown, can anyone lay claim to believing in the true God?
Does this make you wonder if ascribing beliefs to God is a bit too narrow for anything that might reliably be referred to as God?
If, at this point, you fall back on "faith" as a means of filling in the unknown bits, what is it precisely you have faith in and on what basis do you call it God?
And if you decline or are unable to answer such questions, is it unreasonable for others to question your status as a 'true believer?'
On the other hand, if you do not credit your God with the narrow confines of belief, in what way do you credit him/her/it?
I don't mean these questions as crabby or contentious. I'm just curious.
