4th Question: Who or What is God

Continuing on my 2nd and 3rd question and my article on From Guestwriters and on "Looking for answers on the question Is there a God" in case we do have to assume there is a god or gods we should wonder what or whom that god or gods may be.

Looking for answers on the question Is there a God #3 Transcendence or Surpassing other gods and man

Are we willing to see a Omnipotent God Who is above all other god in case He exists? Is mankind willing to face a more intelligent Being than themselves? Most difficult thing to accept for human beings is that this Supreme Being would encompass everything while He is the Most High above everything, being able to be everywhere, to know everything and able to do everything. Most people want to have everything themselves under control and want to command others, not being commanded themselves. Come to know more about modern philosophers like Immanuel Kant their theories and transcendent beings in contrast to immanent beings, by clicking on the title of this article.

Have no other gods besides Me

Coming closer to the end-times it is very important that people do find the Most Highest, the Divine Creator of heaven and earth.

In this world we can find lots of so called Christians who are sinful at worshipping a three-headed god and by kneeling down in front of graven images. It is important for those who really love The Most Almighty God of heaven and earth, that they show others the Way to God and let the world know that we should step aside of all those heathen gods and pagan festivals and rituals, like the Spring-festival, Easter, Halloween, All saints, All souls, and Christmas.

In case we really love God we would not mind showing others that we do not want to be part of this world but want to be part of God’s World, doing what He wants that we do.

Christians on that part still have to do a lot. Many of them still have to find the Way to God (Jeshua/Jesus) and to find the real God or Allah the Most High Whose Name is Jehovah

To remember

A writer looking at Jesus-the ideal man,-believing he fulfills the mark of perfection and is the focus of the whole Bible, giving us a restored image, where the ideal man is reflected in us, knows he fulfilled all of God’s expectations and sets us free from the corruption. Though surprisingly enough he on certain articles and pages gives the impression that he believes the heathen idea of incarnation and that Jesus would have bean a god who came in flesh to restore his image in us.

Strangely enough he also writes he is realizing idolatry is a serious threat to his soul. We thought it interesting to share his study on idolatry.

He himself poses the question

Why is it so important that we “guard ourselves from idols” (1John 5:21)?

and tries to give answers, first, looking at the short biblical answer, but in our eyes the second most important answer:

 We cannot be saved if we love the world and the things of the world (1John 2:15-17)!

The first being that we only should worship One and Only One True God.

He seems to accept that God made this truth absolutely clear with the examples in bible (1Corinthians 10:6) and by listing it in the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:7-8), but strangely enough he like many Christians steps aside or ignores those commandments.

He also seems to be aware that God isn’t physical but seems to take Jesus as his god, even knowing that a physical picture of Jesus or crosses can be idolatrous.

 After all, he said, do not form an idol “of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below” (Deuteronomy 5:8).

He looks at how the Israelites were rejecting Moses (vs.1) and could find a justification for the calf which likely stemmed from an acknowledgement that God was blessing them.

 They got off when their hearts were filled with and focused on the abundance instead of God.  They were caught up in the enjoyment of meeting their physical needs so much that it became a worshipful expression–that is a transition that occurs spiritually in the heart of man.  While they literally worshipped a calf, we see how they shifted to another glorification.

While the bible describes idolatry specifically, all sin is idolatry.  As Tertullian said,

idolatry is “[t]he principle crime of the human race…”

Ideal Man

I am realizing idolatry is a serious threat to my soul.  I am also realizing I really don’t have deep convictions about it and I feel moved to study it out.  My study on idolatry has turned into multiple parts, some I want to share here.

Why is it so important that we “guard ourselves from idols” (1John 5:21)?

First, there’s the short biblical answer:  We cannot be saved if we love the world and the things of the world (1John 2:15-17)!  Some will try to twist this truth in order to soften its blow, but I will avoid their influence as told by 2Timothy 4:3.  Plus, God made this truth absolutely clear with the examples in bible (1Corinthians 10:6) and by listing it in the Ten Commandments (Deuteronomy 5:7-8).

Second, unless we lack the ability to perceive spiritually, we can take a reality check on the condition of our world.  As disciples, we’re called to be aware of the Devil’s…
