GOD

In the human mind, God is a word for the concept of a sentient creator to whom we all return when we die.  Source and provider of all blessings and judgment, God is the everliving being from whom all being extends. 
Under God's control are the powers of good and evil.

 

 

RELIGION

God is love and justice.  Combined, the two can feel unjust and restrictive.  On earth, the manifestation of this experience is religion.  Religion is the act of serving or worshiping God.  Keeping or living the word of God is a life long struggle.  The fight between right and wrong and perfect love is the mystery of God, leading us to death, then life.  Who can tell the mind of God?
