When I said that we were created in Gods image, not him in ours, I meant it from the Christian viewpoint. I meant that we should try our hardest not to humanize God.
Sry I just noticed that I hadn't finished my thought. My sister was watching Scrubs with the volume up all the way, and...meh, whatever. Anyway, I used the Christian perspective because in the bible, the writers of the different books quite frequently humanize God. I believe this to just be an effect of their writing style, and it doesn't take away from the stories really for me. They are events beyond human understanding written down so that humans might try to understand, by humans. So in my mind, they're not going to be perfect. Especially since most (not all) were written after the fact. Like a long time after any of the things that the people are writing about happened. And those events are copied into written word from oral tradition in most cases, so that would effect the way it was written also. Not saying it's a bad thing, it just is.
But, just know that most bible verses posted trying to sway my opinion on the matter won't help much if they quote passages saying how human God is, or trying to explain God in human terms. Just so ya know.
