Wikipedia has an article on:


personal god (plural personal gods)

  1. A deity who can be related to or thought of as a person, through an anthropomorphized persona, rather than an impersonal, and faceless, force of nature—an example of a personal god is the Abrahamic God of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—and a god with whom one cannot have a personal relationship.
    Albert Einstein was not an atheist, but did not believe in a personal god.
