Hello one and all!
Do you believe in one god, many gods, or no god at all? If you believe in a god or gods, is there a gender or name assigned to that divinity? What does that god stand for?
Growing up, I learned about God. It always seemed important for that G to be capitalized, because if you wrote “god”, well that could mean anything. It made sense if you thought of it being a name as well as a designation. It made less sense when reading passages in which God was also referred to as “He” or Him”, utilizing capitalization where the rules of English would not require it. I have seen it argued that this stylistic choice is a measure of respect, which is something I have also seen in some non-religious circles.
What was your introduction to religion? How often do you talk about a god or gods that are not included in your beliefs?
As always, much love!
