He didn't need to read Jonny's mind to know the young Black God was reliving something.
Xander tilted his head to the side, following the teenaged God with his senses.
He scared the shit out of everyone he met, the Black God included.
Instead of going home right away, he went to the last location where the Black God had been.
Even more interested in what the Black God was doing, Xander lingered for a few minutes then left.
Oh, god, are you okay?
God, give me patience.
The Black God was gone.
Stronger than his curiosity was the knowledge that he wanted nothing to do with whatever Jonny was planning, no doubt against the White God, his sworn enemy.
Maybe the teen god was figuring things out on his own, after the godslayer floundered for months with the responsibilities that came with leading his army of vamps.

God, she breathed as he stopped behind a new, black sports coupe.
My god this is beautiful.
You took care of the Grey God's issue before the immortal world went up in flames a few months ago.

They both spent weeks with the Black God, after the teenage godslayer took out the former Black God and took his place.
Jonny was a good kid who had to go bad in order to control the vamps at his disposal and counter the White God's influence.
If Xander knew and Jule knew, so did Damian, the White God.
You killed six women and god knows how many men.
The White God, Damian, was cool and wary, his white-blonde hair, golden eyes and subtle white glow the opposite of Xander's darker presence.
He was accompanied by his brother, the Grey God, Darian, whose unusual power bent the air around him in a mix of light and shadows.
Xander didn't move as the Grey God took Jessi's arm.
He assumed it extended no farther than the Black God using Ashley to get to Jessi.
Rather than piss off the White God, Xander sensed he'd walked into a trap of some sort.
The White God didn't invite the Original Vamp into his home out of a sense of kindness or moral obligation.
His piece said, the White God left.
Xander's gaze remained where the White God had been.
He would never admit that the White God was right aloud, but he began to think he already left his safe corner by placing his fate in Jessi's hands.
Xander studied the wily Grey God, aware of Darian's reputation for having a wild streak that bordered on suicidal.
He respected the Grey God, even if he didn't always like him.
He trailed the Grey God into the building.
The Grey God glanced over his shoulder, a curious smile on his face.
He yanked the Grey God to his feet, pausing for a moment.
She walked straight into the Black God's arms.

She'll run to her dear brother, the Black God, who will crush you.
Snapping her eyes closed, she held her breath, until the Black God released her.
Jessi hurried after the Black God, following him into a narrow hallway and what looked like an operations center of some sort.
The Black God began pacing.
She studied the teen god's face.
The Other was quiet for a moment, studying the Black God.
Jessi didn't have time to figure out what the hell was going on between Ashley and the Black God.
Standing in the middle of a dirt road, god-knew-where, stuck between the bristling Black God and Original Other, Jessi couldn't imagine her situation getting worse.
The Black God released Jessi, who started forward.
He turned on the Black God.
Half a head shorter than him, the Black God didn't back down for once when Xander strode to him, stopping when his toes clipped Jonny's.
If you don't start thinking like a God and stop thinking like a hormonal teen, I'll replace you, Xander warned in a low growl.
I am thinking like a God.
The White God took Xander's arm while the Grey God grabbed Jonny's.
Xander shifted between her and Jonny, not trusting the idiot Black God.
She slapped the Black God.
Xander released Ashley and crossed to him, still fuming at the Black God.
I'll need your wife, Jule, the Grey God said as he joined them.
Her own fate was certainly sealed, and she hoped Xander had grabbed Ashley before she returned to the Black God.
A form leapt in between them, and she recognized the laugh as that of the crazy Grey God.
Xander spun and headed the direction of the Grey God.
Familiar anger and pain swirled through him, the same he felt the night he killed the last Grey God.
We may add that according to this view nothing is real but the living spirit of God and the world of living spirits which He has created; the things of this world have only reality in so far as they are the appearance of spiritual substance, which underlies everything.
Vico held God to be the ruler of the world of nations, but ruling, not as the providence of the middle ages by means of continued miracles, but as He rules nature, by means of natural laws.

He was originally the god of the small river of the same name near Celaenae, an old Phrygian town.

Cook suggests that he may be the god of the stream of Nemi.
It is by no means certain that he made the remark often attributed to him, "Let us enjoy the papacy since God has given it to us," but there is little doubt that he was by nature devoid of moral earnestness or deep religious feeling.
His confessor, Yakov Ignatiev, whom he promised to obey as "an angel and apostle of God," was his chief counsellor in these days.
This difficult task was accomplished by Count Peter Tolstoi, the most subtle and unscrupulous of Peter's servants; but terrorized though he was, Alexius would only consent to return on his father solemnly swearing, "before God and His judgment seat," that if he came back he should not be punished in the least, but cherished as a son and allowed to live quietly on his estates and marry Afrosina.
The Romans had, up to the end of the Republic, accepted only one official apotheosis; the god Quirinus, whatever his original meaning, having been identified with Romulus.

Even the Virgin Mary, though she is styled Mother of God and Queen of Heaven, receives only dulia or at most hyperdulia.

In the language of the Christian Church the word " infallibility " is used in a more absolute sense, as the freedom from all possibility of error guaranteed by the direct action of the Spirit of God.
Some see the guarantee, or at least the indication, of infallibility in the consensus of the Church (quod semper, ubique, et ab omnibus) expressed from time to time in general councils; others see it in the special grace conferred upon St Peter and his successors, the bishops of Rome, as heads of the Church; others again see it in the inspired Scriptures, God's Word.
To the translation and interpretation of the Scriptures men might bring a fallible judgment, but this would be assisted by the direct action of the Spirit of God in proportion to their faith.
As for infallibility, this was a direct grace of God, given only to the few.
This universal motive is further connected, as by Paley, through the will of God, with the "general good, the root where out all our rules of conduct and sentiments of honour are to branch."
The mistletoe figures also in Scandinavian legend as having furnished the material of the arrow with which Balder (the sun-god) was slain by the blind god Hoder.
But all the while he was engaged with reflections on the nature of man, of the soul and of God, and for a while he remained invisible even to his most familiar friends.
The theological professors took the alarm at passages in the Meditations; an attempt to prove the existence of God savoured, as they thought, of atheism and heresy.
The remedy proposed by Descartes is (while not neglecting our duties to others, ourselves and God) to let doubt range unchecked through the whole fabric of our customary convictions.
Such a being he identifies with God.
But the ordinary idea of God can scarcely be identified with such a conception.
The God of Descartes is not merely the creator of the material universe; he is also the father of all truth in the intellectual world.
To say that these truths are independent of him is to speak of God as a Jupiter or a Saturn, - to subject him to Styx and the Fates."
To attach a clear and definite meaning to the Cartesian doctrine of God, to show how much of it comes from the Christian theology and how much from the logic of idealism, how far the conception of a personal being as creator and preserver mingles with the pantheistic conception of an infinite and perfect something which is all in all, would be to go beyond Descartes and to ask for a solution of difficulties of which he was 1 Ouvres, vi.
Through the truthfulness of that God as the author of all truth he derives a guarantee for our perceptions in so far as these are clear and distinct.
And it is in guaranteeing the veracity of our clear and distinct conceptions that the value of his deduction of God seems in his own estimate to rest.
The force of the universe is swept up and gathered in God, who communicates motion to the parts of extension, and sustains that motion from moment to moment; and in the same way the force of mind has really been concentrated in God.
Every moment one expects to find Descartes saying with Hobbes that man's thought has created God, or with Spinoza and Malebranche that it is God who really thinks in the apparent thought of man.
The true physical conception is motion, the ultimate ground of which is to be sought in God's infinite power.
Extended body has no limits to its extent, though the power of God has divided it in lines discriminating its parts in endless ways.
We have then to think of a full universe of matter (and matter = extension) divided and figured with endless variety, and set (and kept) in motion by God; and any sort of division, figure and motion will serve the purposes of our supposition as well as another.
In such a state of despair and destitution there is no hope for spiritualism, save in God; and Clauberg, Geulincx and Malebranche all take refuge under the shadow of his wings to escape the tyranny of extended matter.
Thus in the perfection of man, as in the nature of God, will and intellect must be united.
The mind can act only upon itself; beyond that limit, the power of God must intervene to make any seeming interaction possible between body and soul.
Pascal and other members of Port Royal openly expressed their doubts about the place allowed to God in the system; the adherents of Gassendi met it by resuscitating atoms; and the Aristotelians maintained their substantial forms as of old; the Jesuits argued against the arguments for the being of God, and against the theory of innate ideas; whilst Pierre Daniel Huet (1630-1721), bishop of Avranches, once a Cartesian himself, made a vigorous onslaught on the contempt in which his former comrades held literature and history, and enlarged on the vanity of all human aspirations after rational truth.
The Summa is divided into three great parts, which shortly may be said to treat of God, Man and the God-Man.
The first book, after a short introduction upon the nature of theology as understood by Aquinas, proceeds in 119 questions to discuss the nature, attributes and relations of God; and this is not done as in a modern work on theology, but the questions raised in the physics of Aristotle find a place alongside of the statements of Scripture, while all subjects in any way related to the central theme are brought into the discourse.

The death of his deeply beloved consort Anastasia and his son Demetrius, and the desertion of his one bosom friend Prince Kurbsky, about the same time, seem to have infuriated Ivan against God and man.
He wrote Practical Sermons (1858; edited by Noah Porter); Lectures on the Moral Government of God (2 vols., 1859), and Essays and Lectures upon Select Topics in Revealed Theology (1859), all published posthumously.
The life of trust in God is a fact, not so much to be explained as to explain everything else.
That God is love and that the purpose of His love is the moral organization of humanity in the "Kingdom of God" - this idea, with its immense range of application-.-is applied in Ritschl's initial datum.
With God as "First Cause" or "Moral Legislator" theology has no concern; nor is it interested in the "speculative" problems indicated by the traditional doctrine of the Trinity.
Once more, in the doctrine of sin and redemption, the governing idea is God's fatherly purpose for His family.
The whole apparatus of "forensic" ideas (law, punishment, satisfaction, &c.) is summarily rejected as foreign to God's purpose of love.
Ritschl is so faithful to the standpoint of the religious community, that he has nothing definite to say on many inevitable questions, such as the relation of God to pagan races.
That he aimed at conquering the whole world and demanded to be worshipped as a god is the traditional view.
He does not discuss the possibility of successful resistance to the Chaldeans; he simply assumes that the attempt is foolish and wicked, and, like other prophets, he identifies his political programme with the will of God.

His high conception of God's transcendence, it may be supposed, led him to ignore intermediary agencies, which are common in the popular literature, and later, under the influence of this same conception of transcendence, are freely employed.
