An agnostic friend of mine recently asked me where God is. She said, ‘I know he has a gender and apparently an age and he lives in Heaven, but where is that? How can God have these human characteristics? Is it even possible for God to be a being or Heaven to be a place?’
I’m a pretty new, wet-behind-the-ears Catholic, and I have no idea what the Church’s official position on this matter is. My gut instinct is that God can’t be described in human terms; however, I just read something that said not to think of it as describing God in human terms, but that we’ve been describing ourselves in Godly terms. After all, we were created in His image!
Just asking for the official take on the nature of God and Heaven, and your personal opinions too, of course.
