Lord Krishna declares in the Bhagavad-gita () that the all-pervading impersonal Brahman effulgence comes from Him: > brahmaṇo hi pratiṣṭhāham amṛtasyāvyayasya ca śāśvatasya ca dharmasya sukhasyaikāntikasya ca And I am the basis of the imperso.

The Impersonal Divine A FINITE PERSONAL GOD OR THE UNCONDITIONED ABSTRACT ALL. “A truly religious Theosophist considers it blasphemous and sacrilegious to invest with personality the incomprehensible, eternal Divine Principle – which act, in his opinion, is nothing short of an attempt to drag down the Infinite to the level of the finite.”.

The Problem of “God”: Transcendent, Personal, Impersonal, Imminent. Written by J.

But God is much more than a powerful force. The Bible says that he has feelings, such as love and hate. (Psalm ; John ) It also reveals that the way humans act can affect God’s emotions.— Psalm   I'm a deist and I do believe that God is impersonal.

Not because I think of God as being uncaring or anything like that, I just believe that God is unknowable and untouchable. As a deist I believe that God created the universe, but doesn't get involved in human affairs, because doing so wouldn't allow for man to use its own reason and logic.
