Episode 2.1: God in Relation to Himself

Who is God? What are his attributes? What does it mean when we say he is a “pure spirit?” Why does the Bible talk about his hands and eyes? Does God have emotions like me? What are some particular pastoral applications to the attributes of God? How does knowing God help us worship? These are some of the important questions we answer on today’s episode. Join Shawn, Joel, Nathan, and Kyle as we discuss the supreme judge of the Bible from the Westminster Confession of Faith 2.1:

There is but one only, living, and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts, or passions; immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise, most holy, most free, most absolute; working all things according to the counsel of His own immutable and most righteous will, for His own glory; most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgression, and sin; the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him; and withal, most just, and terrible in His judgments, hating all sin, and who will by no means clear the guilty.

One thought on “Episode 2.1: God in Relation to Himself

  1. Based on the title of Chapter 2, I say paragraph 1 references the Godhead.

    Also, that shema was not correct.
