Krsishna never looks a day over 25- He is forever youthfull, but some of his other expansions look older- God looks like whatever He or She wants to look like you cant put a limit onto God

Wasn't Krishna originally just a human king in what is now India?

Krsna was no human-He came to play the part of an ordinary human being,He displayed His eternal pastimes temporarily on this planet-what human could have shown the Universal Form of God-Krishna is known as the 8th incarnation of Vishnu but actually all expansions of God come from Krishna if you want to find out what was goin on back then,then i suggest you read the Krishna books 2 volumes the book is just called Krishna
if you want to read the conversation between Krishna and Arjuna then read Bhagavad Gita where Krishna shows his universal form
or read the Bhagavatam-18 volumes for spiritual knowledge
or all the upanishads
or the 4 vedas
or the mahabharata
or the chaytania charimtamta
or any of the vast amount of scriptures
their is plenty of evidance stating Krishnas position-He is the supreme personality of Godhead-the embodiment of truth,joy and consiossness and the personification of love,he is transcendental and above the modes of material nature and when he was here 5000 years ago he apeared in his original transcendental body,-He is never human,He is absolute and every living entity are parts and parcels of Him,the entire cosmos flows from Him and it is due to His causless mercy that He appears, he comes to liberate His devotees and anihalate the demons to restore balance-but He dos'nt always come in His original form as Krishna sometimes for different missions He will apear as other expansions-but your statement is wrong there,sorry

There was no statement of mine, I only asked a question
Apart from that I am an atheist, I don't believe in any of that religious stuff, be it from the Middle East, from India or wherever, so I won't spend any time reading that literature, sorry. I don't read fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, either I only find this thread somewhat interesting from a sociological, psychological and historical perspective.

Well, you're probably not a Christian, so that might fit in with your theology. I'm just saying that in the Bible, Jesus repeatedly referred to God as His "Father in Heaven."

Quote:
If we are created in the image of God, male and female we were created in God's image, how can we define God as just a male? That is putting human traits onto a God that is anything but human.
I disagree. Genesis refers to the physical creation of all life on earth. It says that God created all forms of animal life that would reproduce "after their kind." Immediately afterward, it states that God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." It then says, "So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." I don't think it's referring to male versus female but male and female human beings as opposed to male and female animals.

Well, Christians believe Jesus is God, don't they? What do you think Christians would say if you asked them that question?
