If God Had a Facebook Profile

I wonder if God really had a facebook profile page…

What would he put on personal information? He wouldn’d be able to fill most of what is put up there.

Gender: God has no gender and I probably think that he would leave this blank.

Current location: This would probably be tricky. For God inhabits everything. He is God. I’m not trying to explain this in a pantheistic way that is. I should make that clear. But if there was a designated place it would be heaven.

Hometown, home neighborhood: This would be blank as well. See the description above.

Family members: Does God have any family affiliation? I guess not. Anyway this would be blank as well. Many do not add this information so to speak.

Relationship status: There are seven types of statuses to choose from here; single, in a relationship, engaged, married, it’s complicated, it’s complicated and widowed. Not fits the description for God to choose from. I think if God were to fill this he would put there in a relationship or married (explained in a form of commitment) to human beings. I’m not in the mold of those who think God is an absent parent or landlord.

Interest in: I think both men and women would be ticked here.

Looking for: None really fits the bill again in this department. God longs for friendship I have no doubts in that. Enoch, Abraham and Moses just to name a few experienced that. God is also into relationships I would figure. Israel fit the bill here. But I guess God would put here that he is seeking for “committed people” who want to know him and follow his will. The closest ones that would be chosen would be friendship and a relationship.

Political views: This one is tricky. But I think God is not on anyones political view here. He is neither democrat or republican. In Malaysian terms would be the Government and opposition. If God were to take sides that would create havoc. People would be happy to justify their political standing based on their parties. I think he would probably put there “Concerned with the affairs of the world.”

Religion: Does God have a religion? I guess it is best we leave this one.

But after musing on if God was on facebook I doubt we would believe it was God. We would think that it would have been someone who was just fooling around taking on his alleged identity and playing jokes on people.

I say this because when God came and was incarnated as a man in the flesh on planet earth to walk, sit, dine, talk, laugh and do what humans do on earth people did not even notice. God was very well disguised or so it seemed. Most discarded the alleged ‘evidence’ but some believed. And so as John said in his epistle

1 John 1:1-3

1That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.3We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. 4We write this to make our joy complete.
