  1. Deity

    In traditional belief, a deity is a supernatural being, and who may be thought of as holy, divine, or sacred. Believers believe that the deities created for their religions are true, and often that they can communicate with the deities, who can respond supernaturally to their entreaties. Some religions have one supreme deity, others have multiple deities of various ranks. C. Scott Littleton's Gods, Goddesses, and Mythology defined a deity as "a being with powers greater than those of ordinary humans, but who interacts with humans, positively or negatively, in ways that carry humans to new levels of consciousness beyond the grounded preoccupations of ordinary life." Deities are depicted in a variety of forms, but are also frequently expressed as having human form. Some faiths and traditions consider it blasphemous to imagine or depict the deity as having any concrete form. Deities are often thought to be immortal, and are commonly assumed to have personalities and to possess consciousness, intellects, desires, and emotions comparable but usually superior to those of humans. A male deity is a god, while a female deity is a goddess. Historically, natural phenomena whose causes were not well understood, such as lightning and catastrophes such as earthquakes and floods, were attributed to them. They were thought to be able to work supernatural miracles and to be the authorities and controllers of various aspects of human life. Some deities were asserted to be the directors of time and fate itself, to be the givers of human law and morality, to be the ultimate judges of human worth and behavior, and that the universe is designed by them, instead of being a natural result of the laws of physics.

Examples of deity in a Sentence

  1. William Hallman:

    Creation and redemption are the spheres in which these glories are displayed. In creation we see the eternal power and deity that belong to God alone (Rom. 120) while a deeper and richer glory is unfolded in the wondrous cross of the Lord Jesus Christ. There God is fully revealed, not only in terms of His dominion and deity, but in His holiness, love, and grace. At the Cross I learn what creation could never tell me--who God is and what He is to me, a guilty sinner. God is love therefore, He is both light and life. A Savior-God What marvelous grace and glory.

  3. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Juicy goddess I crave you passionately, my love for you is inexhaustible and cyclical like nature itself and the universe and reincarnation. My feelings for you are infinite, like eternity itself, you are my romantic infinity. You are my oblivion, I forget about everything except you. Compliments I say to you reflexively at the subconscious level. My subconscious is praying and calling only you alone. Unconsciously, I only dream of you. I am consciously suffering only for you alone. You are my eternal love poem, the epically beautiful deity of my dreams, you are the eternal engine of my lovingly erotic thoughts about you. The generator of thoughts so poetically paints a portrait of an ideal woman, the best dreams about you alone. The soul and subconscious are singing about love for you. My soul cries out for love for you, and my loins groan with passion. Juicy goddess. Author: Musin Almat Zhumabekovich

  4. Dag Hammarskjld:
