that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.

Penalty for what, we ask?
The Judge is silent.
How can I win the Game?
"You can never win," comes the answer,
"So just take pleasure in playing the Game."

as each person who is in any way affected

as well from as having the perspective of imagination -
the realm of the what-might-be
inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

to choose one's own way.
