There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.

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

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."
