This is a companion thread to my popular What does God do? thread. Surprisingly, so far very few theists have ventured to describe what God does in the world, here and now. I'm not sure whether that is because they aren't sure what God does, or because they've never considered the question, or because they feel embarrassed about answering it for some reason. Maybe there'll be some more informative answers later. The question sounds to me like one a good theist should have a ready answer to. So, to the current thread, which has a similar theme. Again, I address this question to the theists who are reading. Most of you describe God as a Being, like a person. Many of you describe relating to God as if God is a person. For example, you might pray to God, and God might choose to respond in various ways to your prayers. Given that God is like a person (or at least has person-like traits), and given the kinds of things that major religions tell us about God, it seems that God has desires, plans, and emotions that are recognisably comparable to those of human beings. My straightforward question this time around is: based on your own understanding, what does God want? I'd also like to know: how do you know what God wants? I look forward to your responses.
