The god, the soul, the morality that is the man Jesus in the gospels, is not the god of the old testament, is not the god of revelations, is not the god of paul, or the popes, or anyone else. Jesus said, if you know me, you know the father, and from now on you know him, and have seen him.
I don't think anyone has seen the father, because no one has bothered to know Jesus teachings and example in the gospels. If they did, I'm virtually certain they would agree with the following. And if they have not, they would not.
It is the morality of someone that we take as the most essential character of who they are according to rigorous studies. and maybe this is their soul. And other characteristics can change and we still say that the person hasn't changed, but if their morality, their soul changes, we say that they are a different person. That certainly is how I experience people.
