Knowing God- Part 14

Our God is not just a personal God, He is also the God of all majesty. Furthermore, His wisdom is perfect. In our smallness we are prone to fear, doubt, and discouragement, but our God is completely trustworthy.

Knowing God- Part 13

To truly know God requires an understanding of His majesty. In Psalm 139 we see the majesty of a God without limitations. In Isaiah 40 we see the majesty of God in the fact that He has no equal, no comparison.

Knowing God- Part 12

At various times in history it seems that certain truths are emphasized at the expense of others. Today it may be that we emphasize the fact that God is personal above the fact that He is majestic. Psalm 139 gives us a great study on the majesty of God.

Knowing God- Part 11

Our study turns now to the actual attributes of God. If we are to know God, we must study what the Bible says about His nature and character. We begin with the fact that God is immutable; He never changes.

Knowing God- Part 10

If we are to know God, we must know Him as the triune God revealed in the Bible. This means we must know not only the Father and the Son, but also the Holy Spirit. In many respects the Holy Spirit is the unknown or ignored God. We must know His role in the world today and in the lives of believers today.

Knowing God- Part 9

In this discussion we consider the role of the arts and our imagination in our worship. Does anything that "usefully" enhances worship, including images, belong in worship? This depends upon a proper view of worship, and raises the question of whether we adhere to the regulative or normative principle of worship.

Knowing God- Part 8

Do Muslims and Jews worship the same God we do? What about Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses? Even our view of God is not completely according to the Bible, but is tainted by our limited understanding and by our experience. What part should art play in our worship?

Knowing God- Part 7

God has revealed Himself to us using many analogies, but has forbidden us from making any images of Him. Yet, some believers suggest that works of art such as statues and icons can be beneficial to our worship. How are we to understand this, and what exactly qualifies as idolatry?

Knowing God 6

Knowing God is a matter of personal involvement, of experience. It involves my mind, will, emotions, and spirit. Knowing God is also a matter of grace. It is always by God's initiative. What matters most, however, is that He knows me.

Knowing God 5

The Bible uses various analogies to describe man's relationship to God- potter and clay, sheep and shepherd, subject and king, son and father, and husband and wife. Knowing God is a very personal matter.
