Popular Books on God

 

In our everyday life, we pray, we wish, we ask for a lot of things from God. Some of us have a habit of praying only when it is necessary whereas some are regular ones. In either way, we get connected to God and try to find peace. But it is not always possible to connect totally to God. There are some people who don’t believe in all this and they do not pray or join hand before God. Even such people are connected to God in a way. Nobody has a perfect definition for God, but the bible says that God is an entity at the high level and god is considered to be regarded as Supreme Being. In some culture, God included omnipotence and risk and has an eternal and necessary existence. God is either personal or impersonal according to our decision. In one culture, they say that the creator and the sustainer of the entire universe is God. He is universe himself. God has also become a source of moral obligations. In one culture, they don’t believe in God; for them, God doesn’t exist. So various people, cultures, religions have their own definitions and perspective of God which cannot be compared with each other. All you can do is study all the culture and follow whichever one you believe in.
