Is it not ironic that many regard God as restrictive, and to be avoided for that reason? Because God is associated with church and religion, too often these do actually restrict thought, require credence to a set of beliefs and dos and donts, encourage the "we have the answers, they do not!"
I find the following most helpful in expanding thought beyond religious constraints:
God is infinite. He is not restricted to a religion or church! All is included in Him.
God is incorporeal. He cannot be confined to a physical structure or location! "If I make by bed in hell, behold, thou art there." (Ps 139)
God is divine. Unlike the human who is prone to mistakes, He is perfect.
God is supreme. There is nothing to compare Him to, in power, in presence, or consciousness.
God is Love. No hate there! Just a mighty spiritual force.
God is Principle. No more personal responsibility, affection, opinion. "Not my will, but Thy will be done!"
God is Mind. No place for many minds. "The universe is filled with spiritual ideas, which He evolves, and they are obedient to the Mind that made them." (S&H)
...and so on.
We understand that this is how Jesus thought - Jesus, the one who redeemed us from religion! and it enabled him to overcome the limitations of human existence. ENTIRELY PRACTICAL!
