The way we view God to be, reveals characteristics about ourselves.

The people who believe and teach that God is Judge, Juror, and Executioner reveal that they are motivated by fear and guilt and serve God in order to escape His anger and wrath.

The people who believe that  God is the believer’s santa clause in the sky who dishes out miracles and prosperity to their every prayer demand or because people give of their money to a ministry or denomination are spiritually immature, spiritually ignorant and superstitious.

If people believe that God is love...BUT...they are God BUTTING Gospel BUTTERS who are ignorant of the depth of the Love and Grace of our Loving God .

If people believe that there is no God, they live and act as if they are their own god and sets their own course in life with death being the end of life.

How we understand what God is like matters in that it affects how we live our lives and what it reveals to others about who we are.

The prophets understanding of God in the pre-cross Testament are prophetic titbits of what they “thought” God was like.

God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person...(Hebrews 1:1-3)

It is true that no one has ever seen God at any time. Yet the divine and only Son, who lives in the closest intimacy with the Father, has made him known. (John 1:18)

You want to know what God is like...He is EXACTLY like JESUS...”Anyone who has seem me has seen the “Father” (John 14:9).

Does Jesus hate sinners...No...neither does God!

Is Jesus a condemner of people...No...neither is God!

Is Jesus a punish-er of people...No...neither is God!

did Jesus reject people...No...neither does God!

Is Jesus the believers santa clause in the sky...No...neither is God!

Is Jesus religious...No...neither is God!

Did Jesus curse people...No...neither does God!

Does Jesus shame sinners...No...neither does God!

Is Jesus compassionate...Yes...so is God!

Is Jesus loving...Yes...so is God!

Is Jesus forgiving...Yes...so is God!

Is Jesus a friend of sinners...Yes...so is God!

Does Jesus understand our humanity...Yes...So does God!

If what and who we believe God to be is not what Jesus expresses Him to be then we have the wrong concept of what and who God is...no matter who told us what and who we believe God to be!

The only one that can accurately show us what God is like is God Himself...JESUS...He, not the prophets, not the religionists nor the denominationalist, He and He alone is the answer to what God is like.
