Is God an American?
Thanks for your excellent question. You wrote asking: "Is God American? I think he is, especially after listening to you, I think, no, I now know he must be...is he?"
Find a Bible and read the first chapter of Genesis, the first book in it. It is an account given by God Himself to man of what happened before we had a history. It tells us that God was there before all things were created. "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth" Then the story relates how God created mankind, and they became different nations.
People who follow and believe in the God Creator of all things, know very well that God is a Spirit, not a human, or super-human. So God was around long before Americans or any other race!
Read what Jesus said in John chapter 4, and verses 24-26. If you read the story for yourself you will see this is an interracial conversation between the Jesus born of a Jewish mother, and a woman of foreign origin, called a Samaritan.
Jesus said to her "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The woman saith unto him, I know that Messiah cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he"( John 4:24-26, underlining is mine).
Is God American? Absolutely not!
