so you agree GOD HAS GOT SHAPE?
I never denied that. But he doesn't need to take human forms. And write exams for u. But vedas says god has no image. But u people are worshipping many things.
U people even worship sachin, dhoni. Thinking that god is -laying cricket.
Vedas says don't worship idols. But u worship idols
Quran says god can hear and see. And we cannot imagine how he looks like. But we don't worship his creations.
Pnz read previous answers fully. Don't pick one verse. And argue
