Response to God wants us to believe
Yes-s for sure. It is EXTREMELY difficult to create an artificial profile of God because logic and reason will forever expose it.
God could repent all right because "repent" means to change one's mind. However, IF he repented, he would NOT be "the same, yesterday, today and forever."
God could have sons but then he'd have to have a wife! Ha! Where is Mrs. God? We never hear about HER! And what about God's daughters? How could he have kids without having daughters too?
God could be hermaphrodite possibly. That means he could reproduce WITHOUT having any one else to do it with. But then his offspring would lack peckers too! Therefore, they couldn't be sons!
God could have sex with humans and produce phenomenal offspring. This is unthinkable to Christians but not to early humans. God had sex with Sarah and the result was Isaac. God had sex with Mary and the result was Jesus. (So the stories go, anyway). But even the THOUGHT of such blasphemy is an abomination to Christians.
God is NOT a single individual but rather, a collective of all gods. This too, is what the Bible says -consistently- in the old and new testaments. Elohim -OT ; Theos - NT. Thus, ANY activity of the collective upon humans is a form of divine intervention. That includes the activity and effect from EVIL gods in the collective as well. (I believe this is what Isaiah 45:7 initially said or meant and/but then some scribe got a little carried away and injected Jahveh in there instead).
One thing is unmistakable too. When Jesus died on the cross, he uttered -as his "last" words- "Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?" ... or ..... "Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?" (depending on whether it's Mark's version or Matthew's version).
Since the Gospels were written in Greek, these words left in Aramaic/Hebrew become even more significant because there is only ONE way to translate their meaning correctly. They did NOT mean or refer to an individual entity but rather ..... to a collective, "Elohim." The words were a quotation of Psalm 22 and in Psalm 22 the words are (Hebrew) 'la el ale.' This means "men of valor ........ mighty ones ...... those of renown." So Jesus was uttering his last word to the mighty ones in the Theos or Elohim collective.
What is the "collective"?
Well, they COULD be the same fellows whom we today, refer to as "aliens". Thus, Elohim or Theos could have been the early humans' impressions of UFO's or maybe even little grey men that they saw from time to time.
