I didn't mean to offend, Ray. I didn't mean, of course, that God was merely a body. I meant to express my own personal view of the body as a frail instrument. Heaven only knows that as my body ages I see it as being frailer and frailer.

Yes, my belief is that we all "see" the same God. We just see him through the lenses of our belief system, our own complex needs, our limited understanding of that which is presently beyond our understanding.

Mostly I "see" him through his works. Not just the crash of waves or the majesty of mountains, but the intricacy and complexity of the human brain and the self correcting nature of the world and the mercy and compassion that the human soul is capable of.

If there is an afterlife of any sort, I imagine we'll all get a better understanding of the nature of God. Until then, I fully expect there to be differences in how we see God. And I rather expect God will understand that. (Of course, I tend to expect an awful lot of God.)
