How God is Explained

How is God explained by human beings?
Definition of god (Entry 1 of 2)
1 capitalized : the supreme or ultimate reality: such as
a : the Being perfect in power, wisdom, and goodness who is worshipped as creator and ruler of the universe
b Christian Science : the incorporeal divine Principle ruling over all as eternal Spirit : infinite Mind
2 : a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship
specifically : one controlling a particular aspect or part of reality
Greek gods of love and war

Definition of God in English:
1 (in Christianity and other monotheistic religions) the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being.
2 (in certain other religions) a superhuman being or spirit worshipped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity.

Meaning of god in English
noun [ C ] (SPIRIT)

a spirit or being believed to control some part of the universe or life and often worshipped for doing so, or something that represents this spirit or being:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In monotheistic thought, God is conceived of as the supreme being, creator deity, and principal object of faith.[3] The conceptions of God, as described by theologians,[who?] commonly include the attributes of omniscience (all-knowing), omnipotence (all-powerful), omnipresence (all-present), and as having an eternal and necessary existence.
The most important teaching by Christ Jesus is to love God as much as and more than one can with all of one's might, power, and ability from the bottom of one's heart.

The Bible also tells to know the God, although God is assumed to be inherently known by Jewish people and Muslims.

God is not something like an apple one can see, touch, or imagine.  God is not a mere object or a living thing.  So, the Gospels tell that God is spirit whom men have to revere with their own spirit. 

But more importantly, Christ Jesus called God "our father in Heaven" and also recommended men to call God Father.

Indeed, if there is somebody having super and extreme power and ability somewhere who created everything and is controlling the universe and the human world as well as spiritual world, but if that someone has nothing to do with human beings, what is good for us even if we know Him?

So, the most important teaching of Christ Jesus is that God is Father of the human beings in Heaven and the mankind have to love Him.

From the beginning, the mankind seems not yet to be clever enough to understand God and the whole structure of this world including the universe and the spiritual world.  Conversely, as with the progress and development of our material civilization, the mankind seems to lose more power in terms of spirituality and humanity.

Having said so, we night be allowed to discuss God as part of our efforts to love God with all of our might.

Peace Loving Countries

Peace is the most important next to justice, honor, and love for a nation.
For honor Abraham was expected to deliver, nations should fight against evil countries.
For justice Moses was encouraged to achieve, nations should fight against evil countries.
For love Christ Jesus loves, nations should fight against evil countries.

But peace should be respected more than other factors for nations.
