God is Dynamic Love
I will be starting a new Bible study on Wednesday nights on the attributes of God. In preparation for this study I've developed a definition of God. Properly speaking God cannot really be "defined". Theologians describe God as being ineffable (defying expression or description), incomprehensible (incapable of being explained), and unknowable (beyond our ability to fully understand). The Bible says,
How great is God--beyond our understanding! (Job 36:26) Yet, inspite of our inability to fully understand God, we still try to understand him, and so we write definitions to try to explain him, albeit in a limited way.
This is my definition of God: God is dynamic love existing as a pure omnipotent spirit-being who orders his infinite wisdom and energy according to the qualities of perfect mercy and justice and who expresses himself as omnipresent oneness who created the universe and though he is immutable nevertheless is passible and able to existentially relate to his creation as a trinity of persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
No doubt there are better definitions of God than the one I'm suggesting, but I believe it's a good one. Why don't you try writing your own definition. Your definition needs to be rooted in the Scriptures so don't forget to use the Bible. You may need to study a little philosophy because some of the theological terms used in a definition of God are hard to understand.
If you have a desire to understand and thus know God better, I invite you to join us on Wednesday evenings at 7:30. Our first meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 21st. Hope you can make it!
