In a world of so many divergent religions and philosophies …do you find yourself asking (as I did when I was a young boy) …”is there a true God?”
For years that question plagued me. In fact it was a question that I used, to plague some of my school teachers and religious instruction teachers.
They frustrated me with answers …such as “Oh well, the answer to that question is a matter of faith.”
When I lampooned their answers they would send me out of the classroom …and on occasion send me to the Headmaster, where …in those days …I would be caned for being so insolent. Those were the early 1960’s when such instruments of corporal punishment were still used in our Aussie school system.
How has this question rested with you? Have you found a satisfactory answer to it, yet?
Is there a “true God”?
I was aged 15 when I began to find out about the “true God”.
In fact I began to find Him described in the only literature in the world that dares to describe the “true God” …the Bible.
It was quite an illumination to read about the “true God” mentioned in quite a number of scriptures such as: 2 Chronicles 15:1-4; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 22:16; John 17:3; 1Thessalonians 1:9; 1 John 5:20; Revelation 15:3; and Revelation 16:7.
Yes the Bible opened up to me the understanding of where to look, observe, and find the “true God”.
That “true God” is God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ:
“And we know that the Son of God is come, and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him that is true, and we are in Him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.” (1 John 5:20)
You too, can find and have a close relationship with that true God …God our Father and Jesus Christ His Son.
The Church of God has some excellent booklets to aid anyone who genuinely wants to seek and communicate with the True God.
I hope you take up my encouraging challenge to seek and find the true God.
As you do …please keep in touch, as we seek to be a part of God’s Family.
Meantime …keep pumpin’!
