    What is a personal relationship with God?

    And how do you have one? I mean, even if you believe in a personal deity, they still aren't there, in your face, like a person is. You don't have conversations, you don't take them out for a beer, you don't hold them while they cry over their breakup. I have personal relationships with my...

    Investigating the Spirit

    God has revealed through the Spirit God's things to those that love God. The Spirit's God's instrument and agent to enlighten us. In the missionaries' case, the Spirit worked when they were engaged in the work of preaching the Gospel. Since their days, the revelation comes to us through the...

And one of the defining images and doctrines of God in the Christian tradition is "God the Father" from the Trinity. It is a problematic one these days, with...
