Creeds: The Essentials of Historic Christianity
God the Father

1 John 1:1-5, NRSV
Luke 15:11-24, NRSV

Reflections

I want neither a terrorist spirituality that keeps me in a perpetual state of fright about being in right relationship with my heavenly Father nor a sappy spirituality that portrays God as such a benign teddy bear that there is no aberrant behavior or desire of mine that he will not condone. I want a relationship with the Abba of Jesus, who is infinitely compassionate with my brokenness and at the same time an awesome, incomprehensible, and unwieldy Mystery.

  • God create us to know Him
  • Pinnacle of creation is when God created us
  • For us to connect and have fellowship with God
