not "by" but "of" God

I am sure the viewpoint would be considered naive, at best, by many, but not only do I firmly believe there is a God, I am also of the conviction that we are not "by" God, but "of" God.

It may seem as merely a trivial disparity but this notion played a major role in my understanding and is fundamental to the very foundation of my belief system.

Once I accepted that we are not "by" God, but "of" God, I became increasingly aware of the "oneness" we all share. It soon became difficult to look at things through the lenses of mortality, time and space, believing as I do, in immortality and the idea that we are, indeed, all "of" one, thereby, being all "of" one another.
