How Do You Imagine God?
God in America and USA WEEKEND Magazine are partnering to explore Americans' images of God.

How do you imagine God? your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Unimaginable, indescribable, unfathomable, yet incredibly simple and personal.

My Beliefs

My most powerful moment of belief was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator when I first saw the light that is spoken of when describing God.
My greatest moment of doubt was ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator a week before my call back to Christianity.
My spiritual life means... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator to live life to it's fullest and know if I drop the ball, I always have the option to make an attempt to pick it up again.
The biggest misconception about my faith/belief system is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator that Gnosticism is "world hating" or free reign debauchery. It's about freedom but recognizing that others have freedom too. It's about union with God, but not at the expense of compassion for others.
My spiritual role model is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator Christ. 1 person liked this
The tenet/practice/teaching I appreciate most about my faith is ... your photo/ link/ video has been held for approval by a moderator to love God, my neighbors, my enemies, and myself.
