God is Love?
In our Bible study on the God of the Bible we asked the question: Who is God? The Bible says that "God is Love" (1John 4:16) But sometimes that is hard to grasp. Here is Judi's response to that Bible study on the true essence of God.
1. Is it easy for you to believe that God is Love, or is that a new concept for you?
I know that God is love, I just have a hard time understanding why would He love somebody like me.2. Reflect upon a time when you lost sight of the true nature of God and began believing that He was not Love at all (be honest-we've all been there). How can you protect yourself from falling into that trap again?
When I stopped believing God loved me was when a the Mormen church told me that God will never forgive me for something that I had no control over. When they kicked me out of the church because of it I began to beleive God abandoned me and that he will never again love me. I carry that with me today and this happened when I was 16 and I am 42 now. I don't know how to protect myself from falling into that trap again.
