Do you see him as a dictator that is out to make sure everyone follows the rules?
Does the thought of God bring you comfort or does God make you nervous?
Do you trust Him to do the right thing on the behalf of you and the world?
When I consider these questions, I realize that I cannot really know the answers to them unless I know the true nature of God. Unless we are Christians we cannot know his true nature. The Bible tells us, “But the natural man recieveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Cor 2:14 KJV).
A fish cannot know our nature unless it becomes human. We cannot know God’s nature unless we are born of His Spirit.
How could we know Him? We are not of His nature unless we are born of it. We are born of his nature when we go through the re-birth. The Bible speaks of two kinds of birth. The first one is physical and is how we got on earth. The second one is called the “re-birth” or being “born again”. It is an absolute must to knowing God and securing a place in heaven.
