Thousands have a false conception of God and His attributes. They are as verily serving a false god as were the servants of Baal. Are we worshiping the true God as He is revealed in His Word, in Christ, in nature, or are we adoring some philosophical idol enshrined in His place? God is a God of truth. Justice and mercy are the attributes of His throne. He is a God of love, of pity and tender compassion. Thus He is represented in His Son, our Saviour. He is a God of patience and long-suffering. If such is the being whom we adore and to whose character we are seeking to assimilate, we are worshiping the true God. Faith I Live By Pg. 60.
So what happens when we have a false conception of God? The Bible makes it clear, by beholding we become change, 2 Corinthians 3:18. If we see a demanding God that punishes the sinner for their sins and predestines their future, well, we become angry and oppress people and punish them for making mistakes. But if we believe God is Love, 1 John 4:16, we become changed to a beautiful character that is loving, joyful, peaceful, long-suffering, gentle, good, faithful, meek and temperate, Galatians 5:22-23.
The following video series is a beautiful explanation of who God is and how we can truly get to know His beautiful character. We truly recommend seeing the whole series.
