One aspect of God is that He is the creator of the universe, but what does that mean?
To begin to understand God as Creator we have to review the nature of God–God is a self-existent trinity. This means that God was not lonely in eternity past, nor was he bored and looking for something to do. So how and for what purpose did God create the universe? Continue reading “God, Creator”
When I am asked, “What is God like?” I usually think of it in two ways. The first is His character–what qualities does He possess? The second is His nature–a trinity. I want to deal with His character in this post, and will deal with his nature in another. Continue reading “God, What is He Like?”

The Bible clearly gives everything that is necessary to come to saving faith in Jesus and to live the Christian life.
“His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.”
2 Peter 1:3
Paul asks us in Romans 10:14, “how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?” The answer is that one cannot believe without hearing. The follow up then is, “how can one hear about God?” This is precisely why Scripture is necessary.
