In this episode of our podcast, we dive into the question that has been asked by countless people throughout human history: Who is God? We discuss how different religions and belief systems have different names for the divine being they worship, including Allah in Islam, Brahma or Brahman in Hinduism, Buddha in Buddhism, and Yahweh, Adonai, Elohim, Jehovah, and other names in Judaism and Christianity.
Dr. Marc Rivera brings a wealth of knowledge and insight to the discussion, having studied world religions and theology extensively. He guides us through the complexities of understanding God from different cultural and religious perspectives and helps us explore the underlying concepts and beliefs that shape our understanding of the divine.
We discuss the philosophical and theological debates around the nature of God, including questions of God’s omnipotence, omniscience, and omnibenevolence. We also explore the idea of monotheism and polytheism, and how different religions and belief systems have evolved their understanding of the divine over time.
Whether you’re a devout believer or a curious skeptic, this episode will give you plenty of food for thought as we explore the timeless question of Who is God? and what we can learn from the diversity of beliefs and practices that surround this eternal mystery.
