Numbers 23:19. God is not a man
1 John 1:5. This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
Clearly in the bible it says God isn't a man and he is a light based entity. Then we get to one of the more controversial and my personal favorite passages in the Bible:
Matthew 6:22. The light of the body is the eye: if therefore your eye be single, your whole body shall be full of light.
This is what I can't understand about modern religion. Is it not clear for what's being taught by Jesus? I've always viewed Jesus as being more Eastern than Western in his teachings. But yet instead of being a great teacher and person, he has to be viewed as a God. I'd like to get a debate going and find out what people believe what God is, anyone else?
