Simplifying God

We still don’t get it.

With all the scholars, philosophers, scientists

and brilliant thinkers that we fielded onĀ  the problem,

we still don’t get it.

We never should have started on it—

deciphering God.

From all these debates and seminars dealing with God

we have proven that the more we analyze God

the more we fall short.

It has been so, and God made it so,

because he has created us only as an image of Himself

not a carbon copy of Himself.

Doing so would have Him face billions

of strange Gods before Him,

having unlimited thinking capacity

like Him.

We do not realize

that God has revealed Himself to us

in simple words

or words that we can understand.

Foolish as we are these words we translate

in complex verses.

We can understand Him better

if we use simple terms,

layman’s terms.

Let us start with Jesus,

Himself is God’s Word,

meaning God’s Expression.

Now an expression of God which is Divine

would also be divine.

But if we are to continue with Jesus in simple terms

we would realize that the story of Jesus

is actually a love story

told by God communicating to us

in words that we understand.

Let us therefore tell the story of Jesus again

this time in simple words.
