    Pagan gods:

    Essentially just powerful mortals with physical forms, viewed in a way akin to how modern voyeurs view media "celebrities"

    Monotheistic God:

    Not a physical being, the supreme being of the Cosmos, represents good and perfect ideals above and beyond the whims of mortals, has no physical location (e.x. the sky), but is discernable through abstraction or portrayal with symbolic imagery, akin to abstract concept such as "universal physical laws", and whatnot.

    No, Jesus wasn't a "god", but God's avatar, as far theology goes.

    So, what, he's not part of an indivisible Trinity?

    Interesting...So, then, Jesus is God and always has been. No?

    Evangelicals Take Stand on Trinity

    2011

    A group of 73 evangelicals and counting have joined together in a shared declaration stating that when it comes to the three persons of God, it's one-for-all and all-for one.

    Titled "An Evangelical Statement on the Trinity," the document was posted in early November on TrinityStatement.com and affirms that God is one being comprised of three aspects that are co-equal and co-eternal. It was a necessary move, signees say, given the lingering debate over Trinity doctrine in the Christian community.

    Yesterday I had another "revealation kinda" about it. Ganesha was me, I was a kid. Ganesha was a kid. Ganesha that means me suffers, I suffer and Jesus suffers. Ganesha was me. He had my features, and he suffered and was a kid. When he suffered Jesus suffered, so he was Jesus, Im Jesus (that doesnt mean Im really Jesus the Christ but everyone of us is Jesus like and when we suffer it is Jesus who suffers). He wasnt Archangel Michael anymore, not my guardian Angel like in the last revealation but he was me he had my features, and he was a suffering kid.
