The God Of The Bible As Distinguished From The God Of Christian Science And The God Of Modern Philosophy – Spiritual Reading


The God Of The Bible As Distinguished From The God Of Christian Science And The God Of Modern Philosophy – Spiritual Reading.



I have three texts: John 4:24: “God is Spirit.” 1 John 1:5: “God is Light.” 1 John 4:8, 16: “God is Love.” These three texts give three of the most remarkable statements that were ever uttered and set before us in the clearest possible way the Christian conception of God as distinguished from every other conception of God.


The Christian Scientists constantly quote one of our texts: “God is Love.” In fact they quote it more than almost any other passage in the Bible, but they do not mean at all by “God is Love” what 1 John 4:8 or 1 John 4:16 evidently mean when taken in their connection. By “love” the Christian Scientists do not mean a personal attribute of God, but an impersonal abstraction which is itself God.


Mrs. Eddy frankly and flatly denies the personality of God. The Christian Scientists not only say, “God is love,” but they also say, “Love is God.” They not only say, “God is good,” but they also say, “Good is God.” To say “Love is God” is an utterly different statement from saying, “God is love.” You might just as well say “Spirit is God,” because God says, “God is spirit,” but all spirit is not God. Or you might as well say, “Light is God,” because “God is light,” but light is not God and love is not God, though God is love and God is light and God is spirit.


What is meant by “love” in the inspired statement, “God is Love”? What is meant by the statement, “God is Love,” is shown by the definition or description of love given in the context and in the immediately preceding chapter—1 John 3:13-18. These verses clearly show that by the statement in 1 John 4:8 and 1 John 4:16, “God is Love” is not meant that God is an abstract quality, “love,” and that the abstract quality of love is God, but what is meant is that God is a person whose whole being and conduct are dominated by the quality of love, that is, by a desire for and delight in the highest welfare of others.


This will be evident to you if I read from the immediately preceding chapter (1 John 3:13-17): “Marvel not, brethren, if the world hateth you. (14) We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not abideth in death. (15) Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. (16) Hereby know we love, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. (17) But whoso hath the world’s goods, and beholdeth his brother in need, and shutteth up his compassion from him, how doth the love of God abide in him? (18) My little children, let us not love in word, neither with the tongue; but in deed and truth.” 


And from this chapter (1 John 4:7-17): “Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is begotten of God, and knoweth God. (8) He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. (9) Herein was the love of God manifested in us, that God hath sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him. (10) Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sins. (11) Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. (12) No man hath beheld God at any time: If we love one another, God abideth in us, and his love is perfected in us: (13) Hereby we know that we abide in him and he in us, because he hath given us of his spirit. (14) And we have beheld and bear witness that the father hath sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. (15) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the son of God, God abideth in him, and he in God. (16) And we know [and have believed the love which God hath in us. God is Love; and he that hath abideth in love abideth in God, and God abideth in him. (17) Herein is love made perfect with us, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as he is, even so are we in this world.”


The God of what is called “Modern Philosophy” is “The Absolute,” and by “The Absolute” is generally meant a cold abstraction and not a clear, definite and warm personality Who loves, grieves, suffers, and Who works intelligently for others. And oftentimes the God of modern philosophy is not only “in all things” but is all things and all things are God. Such a God is no God at all.


Whereas the God of the Bible, as we shall see as we proceed, is a Divine Person who exists apart from the world which He has created and Who existed before the world He created, Who bears definite relations to the world He has made and Who works along definite and clearly revealed lines.


So we come face to face with the question, What sort of a Being is the God of the Bible, the real God, the one true God, the God of Christianity, the only God Whom we should worship and love and obey? The Kaiser also talks much about God and his followers are fond of saying, “Gott mit uns,” but if any one will carefully study the Kaiser’s utterances it becomes plain that he does not mean by God the God of the Bible, the Christian God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

How To Become A Better Husband – Blog Of The Day

With the high divorce and separation rates in our world  and many wives lamenting about how unloved and uncared for they feel, it seems like many husbands today need some education on how to be better husbands and how to love their wives.

Most literature out there is about how women can treat their husbands better. A cursory look at many pinterest boards and most are filled with advice on how women can be better wives but very little on how men can be better husbands.

Paul, the apostle encouraged husbands to love their wives, the same way that Jesus loved the church.

“Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself for her 26 to make her holy, cleansing her with the washing of water by the word.”

Ephesians 5:25-26

There has been a lot of debate in regards to this, as earlier in the chapter, Paul also encourages wives to submit to  their husbands.

“Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.”

Ephesians 5:22-24

Unfortunately, some ungodly and unrighteous men have taken this verse and misused it to mistreat their wives.

In his blog series titled,  Becoming A Husband of No Reputation, Travis who blogs at Jesuslovesyou32 brilliantly explores the topic of being a great and godly husband. He masterfully delves into the topic and shares a lot of great insights.

If you are a married man who wants to become a better husband to your wife, and to improve your marriage, this is a must read series.
