God the King, the Father, the Brother, the Ghost

Abstract

God the King, the Father, the Brother, the Ghost is a currently (very) short article on the distortion of the image of God caused by the frequent use of human metaphors in scriptural writings. It is concluded that God is not a King or mundane ruler in any sense of the word, is not a Father (or Mother or any other human/sexual parent), is not even a Brother in the sense that certain humans are God to the exclusion of others. God is the Holy Spirit, the very essence of awareness and existence itself. Consequently God is both very simple and yet very difficult indeed to get a conceptual grip on.
