My appreciation for this Question. It has provoked many thoughts in me today. Thank you.
Subject : "God as the ground of our being"
In Creation, Genesis 1:1, God expressed himself by creating (by Logos), John 1:3, but, particularly, when he created humanity he did so '...
If God knows everything, he is therefore incapable of acquiring new knowledge. I believe that one of the purposes of Jesus existing as a man was to give the 'godhead' insight into what it was like to be human. That doesn't seem to be true, reading this article
These other explanations confuse me as does the Trinity to any person who wasn’t raised to understand it. Children are the best to talk to about it because their minds explode comprehending it.
It’s pretty simple in my opinion. God the Father is God. Period. Jesus Christ is not God. He never said He was. The best scriptures I like to use to explain this is ...
Righteousness leads to holiness.

In Christianity, God created everything, including all human beings who have a body as well as a soul made "in God's image". Incarnation (God taking a ...
The answer is YES, God is capable of human emotions.
The common topic in theology for this question is the discussion on 2 contrasting attributes of God: passibility vs. impassibility. This answer borrows heavily from the two GotQuestions.org articles linked above.
Let's consider the data:
As you mention, Scriptures presents God in emotional terms, ...
If you are ever in the presence of God the Father, you may be privileged to ask Him for yourself whether He has a Father, or perhaps the question will have already be answered for you at that point. But to us there is one God, and He is our Father. A cousin, niece, nephew, or even grandfather does not and cannot take the place of a father.
Fatherhood, and ...
Although the word 'spirit' is used in the bible to refer to beings with personhood, it is not always used to identify a separate personhood, and often refers to the 'spirit' that belongs to some one.
