Faith. Freedom of choice. If God saved everyone and let everything be good, why not just live in Heaven.

their definition of a god included emporers and pharaohs, and great men, otherwise called "heros" (not the same definition we use today).
What's your point? Because I think you missed mine.

Thank you for proving my point. God should not be able to be reduced to describable terms. To describe him, is to characterize him. This shouldn't be possible if he's truly a god. Even the word perfection puts a metaphysical limit on a god. For instance, the Christian god desires fellowship with human spirits. I would assert that God knows nothing of "fellowship". Essentially he would find fellowship in himself, if he is anything.
