Beliefs About God

Our beliefs about God’s true nature greatly influence our personal relationship and intimacy with our Creator. Our theology, which is basically our characterizations of God,  must not make it difficult for others we influence to turn to God as many work out their faith through the lens of the opinions and viewpoints of others. God forbid one seeker be driven to despair or unbelief because of disputable images of God.

Many Christians may be offended by beliefs I defend, but God surely delights more in one seeker who comes to truly know them than the ninety-nine offended who already know their Creator (Lk. 15:3-7). Biblical interpretations must be plausible based on what a loving God should be like. God cannot ask us to believe in anything unworthy of human, rational believe as it would go against God’s nature. For example, Hell as endless torture if there is a defensible exegetical alternative, must be rejected.  We are in desperate need of reformation of some of our beliefs about God’s true nature, so others may consider a friendship with our Creator.
