This argument cannot be solved with words.
There is a difference in "a God" and "God".
Most people that argue about this subject are arguing whether there is 'a' God, an entity separate from you that has rules and regulations to be followed, and you are graded on how well you follow those rules and regulations. If you are a good follower, then you get rewards. If you are not so good, you receive deprivations or punishments. I used to envision a God like that when I was a JW. I don't now, but I firmly believe in God.
