Which God?

The religious hosting blog Patheos was ablaze today with posts referencing the Wheaton College dust up over which God/god is the real one. You know, “my god’s stronger than your god.” According to the professor, Allah is not the same as the Jewish/Christian God.

The major difficulty with this concept is the fact that the Abrahamic God, YHWH, is a tribal God of the Canaanites, not the Creator of the Universe. So therefore neither are in the same league with the Creator of the Universe.

Only when this distinction is accepted, can this discussion move on to the much more important topic of attempting to understand the Origin of the Force necessary to create this unbelievably vast Universe.

Meanwhile, blood will be spilled and lives ended while opposing sides fight once again, as they have for thousands of years, over tribal gods.
