I've added a new entry to my book, "These Are My JOTtings, Part #2" :
"The Living God"
Today's poem is a continuation of my thoughts
and response to Fathertymme, Winter Edition in the thread post
of this week's Spiritual Newsletter.
My attempt at trying to explain the existence of God
is, no doubt, meager at best.
I have learned over the years, that telling others what to believe about God
is consistently not well-received, nor is it easily provable.
Therefore, my approach has been to tell others what I can or cannot believe
about the Person of God.
Anyone, who knows me knows just what a childlike heart I possess.
I celebrate Christmas year-round in various forms.
My response to Fathertymme is quoted in part here, "Fathertymme,...Are you referencing the alleged 'Creation OF God'? I don't think it is logically possible for God to be created. At least I can't understand that possibility.
The Self-Existence of Uncreatable God is the concept, that is totally outside the realm of human comprehension as it is expected to be, if God can actually exist as I believe, that He does.
Any God we can comprehend cannot possibly be God. It is my deepest and longest-held belief, that God must exist or nothing else can. Ergo, life on Earth exists, therefore God must exist in order for life to be possible. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-4; Revelation 22)"
Why have I quoted myself, today? I want to clarify something. It would be unwise for me to tell Fathertymme or anyone else what to believe if that individual does not hold to the Absoluteness of Holy Writ as I do. Some individuals may have the ability to conceive of a God, that can be created. I am not one of those.
The childlike spirit, that lives within me, sees everything, that God says about Himself in The Holy Bible as being The Absolute Truth. Small children tend to believe their parents (at least at first) without question because the parents take care of all of the needs of the children.
Those, who come to Jesus for Salvation, as I have, must come to Him as that same type of trusting little child, that believes the Guardian without question. (As a maturing Christian, I have learned to question the faith, respectfully, for the purpose of certifying the Truth to be shared with others, but still, the foundation for Christian faith is trusting the Person of Truth, [Jesus - John 14:6] as a little child.)
