William Lane Craig has provided these illustrated teaching tools as a way to answer some of the profound questions the child in your life might ask. What Does God Look Like.

What Does God Look Like. - Comparison to Man Ask children, “What does God look like?” and their responses usually include: “He is very old, has a long white beard, bushy white hair, and wears a flowing white dress or robe.” Frequently cartoonists add.

Answer: God is a spirit (John ), and so His appearance is not like anything we can describe. Exodus tells us, “You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live.” As sinful human beings, we are incapable of seeing God in all His glory.

His appearance is utterly unimaginable and too glorious to be safely perceived by sinful man. This second booklet "God Is Everywhere" is about what theologians call God's "omnipresence" (God's being all-present).

Our story helps us avoid two errors in thinking about God: thinking that God is localized in a place like heaven and thinking that What is God like? book is spread throughout space like an invisible gas. The Bible is like an instruction book for His human creation, and it tells us what we need to know to approach the Almighty God and really get to know Him.

It shows that God is love, and God the Father “so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John ).

Fire is not God; God is like fire. But beware of wasting your time on theological foam and suds. Read rich doctrinal books about the one who called you to his glory and excellence (2 Peter ). Now, I know what you are thinking: I don’t have the time or the ability to get anywhere in books like that.

So, I want to show you something really encouraging. God is a living Person who knows and loves every one of us. God is pleased when we want to know Him. Above all, God wants us to love Him with all our heart.

Although God is a Person, He does not have a body like we have. God is spirit. We cannot see that which is spirit. When God made you, He gave you a body. He also gave you a spirit. The prophet Isaiah wrote, “I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure’” (Isaiah –10).

The Bible is a story of God’s relationship with mankind, and most books put God front and center.

Jesus, the God-man, is the main character in all four books. The first person to use the term god-complex was Ernest Jones (–51). His description, at least in the contents page of Essays in Applied Psycho-Analysis, describes the god complex as belief that one is a god.

Abnormal psychology. Superiority complex. Cult of personality. Grandiose delusions. Mental health of Jesus. Messiah complex. 20 The Bible truly is a book from God. He wants you to read it, study it, and love it.

And we can’t see God because of our sinfulness. So while we are here on earth, we cannot see Him; we cannot know what He looks like, even though He is present with us. However, we see the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ as revealed in the Bible.

Now there is good news. God loved us and He had a plan that would save us. God is All-Good Our seventh booklet "God is All-Good" raises profound and very important questions about the foundation of moral values. Papa Bear maintains that without God moral values and duties have no foundation and are therefore just subjective matters of opinion.

Answer: The Bible, God’s Word, tells us what God is like and what He is not like. Without the authority of the Bible, any attempt to explain God’s attributes would be no better than an opinion, which by itself is often incorrect, especially in understanding God (Job ).
