God is too big to fit into one religion – rebuttal.

This is an interesting concept.  God is too big to fit into one religion.  If this were true, it’d means that every religion is wrong about their view, or lack of a view, of the divine (God).

This is ultimately saying that God is unknowable from one religion alone, and since the teachings of the various religions contradict each other, combing them all into one God-smoothie doesn’t help matters.

Wrong #1 – Christianity, as well as some other religions, claim that God is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnibenevolent.   How can God be bigger than that?  Is it even possible for a God to exist bigger than a God that is not restricted by time, space, or matter, who is not limited in any ability to do as he wills, he has complete and perfect knowledge of everything, and always acts in ways that are wholly good?  I don’t think so.  Therefore, it’s completely possible that God can fit into one religion.

Wrong #2 – Religions aren’t containers.  They don’t contain God.  They’re not boxes that somehow, God conveniently fits into, although some religious adherents treat their religions as such.  Religions offer revelations and explanations to who God is.  It’s committing a category error to say that “God is too big to fit into one religion.”

  1. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as
    long as I provide credit and sources back to your webpage? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and
    my visitors would genuinely benefit from a lot of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Regards!

    1. Well if “Car Insurance for women over 80” isn’t a complete and total spam, sure, you can use my posts on your blog.

      Could you let me know though why this post has received about 5 car insurance comments?

  2. Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments?
    If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

  3. This blog is written like a Bushistic “Nailed it!” attitude. The saying means: that since god is so great and omnipresent, and omnipotent he is everything, since everything is from him. So no religion written by man can define him and everything created by man is the spirit…So in this logic, whether it be Christianity or any other religion, it is part of the whole, but does not define the spirit.
