Every week young people gather in our home. We share a meal, life and spirituality. A few weeks ago we invested a whole night on the topic “Who is God”. There is so much that can be said theologically and philosophically, but I wanted to concentrate on the relational aspect of who God is. I’ve been hounded to share my notes on this night. So here they are:
- You can look to yourself. (What are your thoughts on God?)
You can ask others their opinions. (Text and ask someone right now)
You can look to other sources (I recommend that we look at the bible)
Many of you have tried opening the bible and reading from page one and expressed that it doesn’t help your understanding of God. It doesn’t seem to be about him but about creation VS evolution. I don’t think that is the point here. God didn’t actually give us a scientific text book, but in fact he gave us a poem. If it were written more scientifically it would probably sound like this:
It doesn’t really answer questions about how the creation happened, but rather gives us a reflection of the one creating it.
In the beginning. God.
