One might say that the true God is the embodiment of everything that is true, honorable, virtuous, and true. It is not enough to say that God "has" love, but God Himself is the essence of all that is true love. The converse is also true. All true love is God. In a very real sense we "worship" God and "live" in God by living a life of true love. The same is true of all the other virtues and character qualities. We live in God as we endeavor to live them out and express them to the fullest. How do we do that?
What is God
Today I turned 61.
This blog entry is a ... of my thinking about writing an article about what God is. That article will be found here.
One of the first things that we have to realize is that God is what he is no matter what we think about him. The reality of God is independent of what we might think about him.
Much of theology seems so complex and hard to understand. Is God supposed to be hard to understand? Is there a way to make it simple?
"I would not give a fig for the simplicity this side of complexity, but I would give my life for the simplicity on the other side of complexity."
