I hear of many gods, different and strange

People do what they say, and they're not sure why

Some are born with their family's god

Some mold their gods in their image

Many gods are demanding and aloof

Some gods require deprivation, others require murder

But my God is not like that

My God is not made in any image

Does not have many arms

Is not part animal, and is not a part of creation

He does not work in mysterious ways

My God is one

My God is neither male nor female, although He asks me to call him Father

My God does not ask me to dress a certain way,

or pray a certain way

or eat a certain food

or pray in a certain place

My God does not cause suffering, and He does not take children to be with Him

My God has a beautiful name, but very few people know it

My God hears me, and responds

He gives me wisdom, comfort, courage and hope

My God wants me to help others, not hurt them

He does not take sides in wars

My God invites all people to get to know him, whatever their religion, colour, age, race or sex

He is not confined by His own laws

Does not expect us to solve the world's problems, but has promised to intervene

My God always tells the truth

He hates suffering, and has promised to put an end to it forever

He promises to reverse all evil, and to bring my dead love ones back to life

My God will not let our earth die, because He made it for us

He is patient, kind and loving, and He wants me to be the same

My God knows the best way to live, and He has shown me how

He wants me to live forever

I think you would like my God, if you got to know him
