I Want to Know God
by Rose Elaine Linder Denman
I want to know God better. I love him and I believe in him and I trust in him! I just want to know all about his characteristics and be one with him!
Answer: Well, Praise God! Since you are getting a copy of the free book offered on this site - Light on the Dark Side of God, I would suggest you read that. It will make God look better than you have probably ever seen Him before. And the more you understand and appreciate His character the more you will love Him and want to be like Him (or, as you say "be one with Him.")
God's fundamental characteristic is love. The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:8 that "God is love." This is rather unique. Other verses tell us that God is truthful, or righteous or just (adjectives) but they do not say that God is truth or righteousness or justice (nouns). God is not just loving but He is love itself. The truth about God's character is truly wonderful.
He forgives all our sins. He does not tell us to love our enemies and then burn His own. (See the page about eternal fire.) And there is much more good news about God. He is just so much better than most religions portray Him to be. I will be adding more pages on this website to describe God's character in the future - watch for them.
