Default Personality of God

I wrote this to get out some thoughts, but I gave it a Catholic spin because I wanted to convey the idea to my traditional Grandparents. My actual take on the nature of everything is considerably more liberal and abstract than this dogmatic view, but wherever you come down on the nature of absolute reality, the basic premise can still be maintained. I felt I might as well share it here. What follows is some lessons I think can be inferred from considering what the perspective would be like. Socionics is an interesting way to get it all in there.

God is absolute in all 8 aspects. He is the ultimate extrovert because He defines Himself in all things; He is the ultimate introvert because, as ultimate reality, His perception is completely turned upon Himself. He embodies sensation as all that is tangible and perceivable; he embodies intuition as all that is subjective and abstract. He is the unity of thinking and feeling, acting in both complete reason and complete compassion. He is perceiving as he simply is; He is judging as He demonstrates Himself through perfect order.

He wants us to have it all, and it is ours if we will only accept it.

As pieces of God, we strive to complete ourselves in His image. We begin in total innocence, and we never lose it. Pain only enters the world through our ignorance of God. As complete knowledge, what follows is His complete benevolence; that from total knowledge flows perfect understanding and perfect love.

There is no good or bad; understanding pierces all the way through the dark part of all of us. What we call evil is only that which we cannot bring ourselves to understand. There is really only fear and love, and the only means for fear to enter the world is through our great separation. When we choose to act in fear we forget that we are all God; any act of malice towards one another only seeks to hurt the being we are all a part off.

God does not punish us for these sins, we are punished by our sins. By running from love into the cold separation of ignorance we deny His divine promise of unyielding mercy.

Through his son's perfect sacrifice He gives us all that we need to know: that if we are to be saved from ignorance we are to be saved by love. Love is faultless and can never fail. It is never the wrong answer. Through love we can grace the heals of God's absolution; as by becoming one with each other we fill in the limits of our perception and glorify Him by rejecting the ignorance we carry within ourselves.

OH, now I'm starting to see how I'm both an extravert and an introvert! It's because I'm divine. My perception is turned upon myself and yet I define myself in everything. I don't even understand why those two would be opposites!!! Maybe because my N is so high, I'm able to perceive my own reality as divine or as ontologically based in God as we all are. Not that I reflect God that much unless he's the God of chaos as well as order which I think he probably is! I believe everything is a part of God.

I think pain is part of God and so is the healing of pain.

'Through love we can grace the heals of God's absolution' Would you care to rewrite that sentence?

I was only thinking today that we can learn a lot about psychology from theology. I was reading a theological book on art and imagination.

So you're a Catholic - does that mean you're into whips?

This makes me want to burn down Patrick Swayze's house.

Anyway, isn't being "God-fearing" supposedly a good thing? Isn't that a bit contradictory?

If you want to be literal. I think "god fearing" just means to recognize the power and to be submissive to it. To the extent God=Love, then the meaning becomes "be submissive to love," which also means "choose love," the exact premise I'm trying to evince.

Ah, I thought it was literal.

You have nice thoughts, but I stand by my original pyromanic declaration.

F*** Swayze.

In his case you don't have to choose love if you've ever seen "Too Wong Foo: Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar"

I think you may have missed the Donnie Darko reference.

No one gets to heaven these days. I bet everything beyond the pearly gates is, like, so out dated.

Plus with all the gays in hell, who would renovate?

After thumbing through the Old Testament, the answer is clear: God is a pissed off ISTJ that loves rules and regulations and punishes those who deviate with extreme prejudice. No wonder I hate God and am destined for the fiery pit.
