Who is God?

Some say there is no God. Others say there is a God but each person describes Him in such a way that I wonder if we are talking about the same person. There are many descriptions of God.  Some people see him as an indulgent grandfather who readily forgives those who confess wrongs and then showers them with goodies. Others think of Him as vengeful, out to get anyone who steps out of line. Another opinion is that he set the universe in motion and then has stepped back and the world is on autopilot. There are many more. (I used Him,  and person, in the second sentence and that would be open to debate by some).

What we think God is one of the central keys to how we conduct our lives.

When you imagine Him, what is the first descriptive word you would use? What is His character like? Do you project characteristics of good or bad men in your life on Him? Sorting out what our beliefs are is important.

The next step is to see if our opinion or description aligns with what He says about Himself. But that is for another day. Image
