What makes so many people assume "god" is an individual?
I’ve often wondered this. Many people reffer to god as a individual on the sidelines of life on earth, making judgement calls. I understand god as a higher power, a creating element of the universe, and something greater than what’s imaginable by our minds. I’m just curious to where the thought of god being and indevidual came from, in a religious or social sense.
