If God were to return to Earth as an ordinary human being, I believe he would choose to be an actor. An actor is a person who portrays a character in a performance, and God is certainly one complex character!
He already has previous experience playing diverse characters in creation stories — playing male and female genders accordingly, to each “script”. For example, in the Bible, he plays both a domineering, aggressive, and demanding father figure; but also a kind, compassionate, and protective son.
Lastly, he plays the role of a mysterious, genderfluid, multilingual spirit, which ironically, is actually closest to his true physical form. I use he/him pronouns for God only because I was raised believing him to be male.
Each religion defines God’s role differently: different origin stories, settings, personalities, cast, etc. In the end, he is still the same supernatural entity that we all know and love.
For those of you that don’t believe in him (because you’ve never physically met), I suggest to picture him as the embodiment of “infinity” in mathematics.
That is, he’s an entity that is boundless and larger than any real or natural number. He cannot be directly quantified, but he can be symbolized, and therefore, he can be conceptually understood — even in the mind of a child.
God’s power is similar to that of the Coronavirus:
- Omnipotent: can kill any human, regardless of wealth/health/status
- Omniscient: constantly evolving and mutating into new variants
- Omnipresent: found everywhere around the world
God’s morals are based on Divine law, while humanity’s morals are based on Natural law. This is why some people live and others die; why some people suffer and others thrive.
I say that God would play an actor because he really loves performing. He actually plays an active role in all our lives, communicating through the hearts of our friends and family, and to our minds through innovation and inspiration.
His primary motivation in life is to ensure that we all live our lives to their fullest. One day you will meet him, and discover all this for yourself. I’m just accelerating this process for you, so that you may receive this information prior to death. My hope is that at the very least, I have caused you to re-examine the role that faith plays in your life.
