Our God

Is God loving and wrathful? Is He gracious and just? Does He really know everything? Is He really everywhere? Does He really know everything?

Is your view of God this big?

If not, then chances are that you are worshiping a false god and not the God of the Bible.

God is Unsearchable

Isaiah 40:28 teaches us that God is unsearchable. Therefore, even if the list above seems massive, it is nowhere near how massive our God actually is!
