Defining 'God' Doesn't Really Help.

Hi Mike,

I have defined 'God' as "a transcendent sentience" until I was blue in the face and it didn't make a bit of difference.

Each person has his or her own personal concept of God which they cannot articulate in a way anyone else can understand. As a result, any attempt to define 'God' meets with stiff resistance by almost everyone but the definer. There are as many acceptable definitions as there are people. The trouble is that each definition is acceptable to only one person.

Warm regards,
