Let Differen views of GOD:

God is the English name given to a singular being in theistic and deistic religions (and otherbelief systems) who is either the sole deity in monotheism, or a single deity in polytheism.[1]

God is most often conceived of as the supernatural creator and overseer of the universe.Theologians have ascribed a variety of attributes to the many different conceptions of God. The most common among these include omniscience (infinite knowledge), omnipotence (unlimited power), omnipresence (present everywhere), omnibenevolence (perfect goodness), divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence.

God has also been conceived as being incorporeal (immaterial), a personal being, the source of all moral obligation, and the “greatest conceivable existent”.[1] These attributes were all supported to varying degrees by the early JewishChristian and Muslim theologian philosophers, including Maimonides,[2] Augustine of Hippo,[2] and Al-Ghazali,[3] respectively. Many notablemedieval philosophers and modern philosophers have developed arguments for [3] and againstthe existence of God.

Etymology and usage

The earliest written form of the Germanic word god comes from the 6th century Christian Codex Argenteus. The English word itself is derived from the Proto-Germanic * ǥuđan. Most linguists agree that the reconstructed Proto-Indo-European form * ǵhu-tó-m was based on the root* ǵhau(ə)-, which meant either “to call” or “to invoke”.[4] The Germanic words for god were originally neuter—applying to both genders—but during the process of the Christianization of the Germanic peoples from their indigenous Germanic paganism, the word became a masculine syntactic form.[5]

In the English language, the capitalized form of God continues to represent a distinction between monotheistic “God” and “gods” inpolytheism.[6][7] The English word God and its counterparts in other languages are normally used for any and all conceptions and, in spite of significant differences between religions, the term “God” remains an English translation common to all.. The same holds for Hebrew El, but in Judaism, God is also given a proper name, the tetragrammaton (written YHWH), in origin the name of a Edomite or Midianite deity, Yahweh. In many translations of the Bible, when the word “LORD” is in all capitals, it signifies that the word represents the tetragrammaton.[8] Allāh(Arabic: الله‎ allāh) is the Arabic term with no plural or gender used by Muslims and Arabic speaking Christians and Jews meaning “The God” (with a capital G), while “ʾilāh” (Arabicإله‎ ellāh) is the term used for a deity or a god in general.[9][10][11] God may also be given a proper name in monotheistic currents of Hinduism which emphasize the personal nature of God, with early references to his name asKrishnaVasudeva in Bhagavata or later Vishnu and Hari.[12]

 

General conceptions

There is no clear consensus on the nature of God.[13] The Abrahamic conceptions of God include the monotheistic definition of God in Judaism, the trinitarian view of Christians, and the Islamic concept of God. The dharmic religions differ in their view of the divine: views of God in Hinduismvary by region, sect, and caste, ranging from monotheistic to polytheistic to atheistic. Divinity wererecognized by the historical Buddha, particularly Śakra and Brahma. However, other sentient beings, including gods, can at best only play a supportive role in one’s personal path to salvation. Conceptions of God in the latter developments of the Mahayana tradition give a more prominent place to notions of the divine.

Oneness

Monotheists hold that there is only one god, and may claim that the one true god is worshiped in different religions under different names. The view that all theists actually worship the same god, whether they know it or not, is especially emphasized in Hinduism[14] and Sikhism.[15]

Islam‘s most fundamental concept is a strict monotheism called tawhīd. God is described in theQur’an as: “Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; And there is none like unto Him.”[16][17] Muslims repudiate the Christian doctrine of the Trinity and divinity of Jesus, comparing it to polytheism. In Islam, God is beyond all comprehension or equal and does not resemble any of his creations in any way. Thus, Muslimsare not iconodules, and are not expected to visualize God.

Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities.
