God is not Catholic.
God is not evangelical.

God is not the God
Of this or that religion.
God is God.
God is God and
The father of all people.
God wants the salvation of all people.
God cares for all people.
God loves all people.
God is God for all.
He is our good father.
We are all his creatures,
Children of this earth.
