An Investigation into the Problem of Personification of God (Anthropomorphism)

Article Type:
Research/Original Article (ترویجی)

In anthropomorphism or personification of God, which is somehow a new topic in Western theology, God is perceived in human form. This study mainly addresses the truth of God's personification and its characteristics and components. It can be argued that the most important issue in proving the personification of God is to know the concept, characteristics and components of personification. This article explains the truth of God's personification and considers the concept of personification as a composite concept since we do not have a distinct concept called personification among the other attributes. Hence, there are some elements and criteria for personification, including life, knowledge, reason, authority, mindfulness, reciprocity, comprehension and speech, responsibility and moral judgment, and distinction from others. Accordingly, descriptive personification is perfect and analogically graded. The personification of God can be proved if God has the criteria of personification even in the analogically graded form.
