The Anthropomorphic God (2)
By . 2009. Made by Mammals.
“The Old Testament Jehovah is definitely a sort of divine man (not a woman), who sees with eyes and hears with ears – and talks and acts in real time (God waited to see what Job would do, and then he spoke to him). Many contemporary Christians, Jews and Muslims insist that God, or Allah, being omniscient, has no need for anything like sense organs, and, being eternal, does not act in
real time. This is puzzling, since many of them continue to pray to God, to hope that God will answer their prayers tomorrow, to express gratitude to God for creating the universe, and to use such locutions as ‘what God intends us to do’ and ‘God have mercy’, acts that seem to be in flat contradiction to their insistence that their God is not at all anthropomorphic.”
