              God is good
            God is most often conceived of as
            the supernatural creator and
            overseer of the universe.

                God is good
            • He alone is truly and fully good.
            • He is good without mixture of evil
            • In Him all evils disappears.
            • Evil has no place in Him, just as
              darkness has no place in the
              Light.
            • He can do no evil.
            • Evil does not come from Him.

            Will Power
            • He gave freedom to His Creation
            • freedom to reject the God
            • Thereby to choose evil.
            • Evil is the denial of created being.
            • Freedom is the root of evil.
            • When any being uses its freedom
              to deny and reject the good, it
              denies also being itself.
            • True created being is always good,
              like its creator.

            Who is this God
            “Who is this God, and where do we find
            Him?”,

            I can only say with all who have known
            God, that there is no way we can grasp Him
            with our concepts or express His being with
            our words.
            We can say many things about Him in a
            negative or metaphorical language.

            God is not male or
            Female
He is neither male nor female, nor is He a
neuter It.
The Creator has no gender, which is an
attribute only of the created order.
He is Who He is, Who will always be, the
“Great I am who I am”.

He is without form or body
     without beginning or end, without limit or
     extension, neither in space nor in time, not
     needing to become or grow into something he
     is now not, and therefore without change or
     movement, not dependent on or derived from
     anything else, everything else being derived
     from and dependent on Him.
     Who and where are not questions appropriate
     for the One who is Eternal and Infinite.
     Where He is not, there is only nothing.

All good are comes from God
All that is good not only comes from Him, but is also
His presence.
Where the good is, there God is present.
Wherever it shows up-in people of different faiths and
religions, in people Who claim to believe in no God, in
birds and animals, in trees and flowers, in mountains
and rivers, in air and sky, in sun and moon, in
sculpture and painting, in music and art, in the smile
of the infant and in the wisdom of the sage, in the
blush of dawn and in the gorgeous sunset.
Where the good is, there is the kingdom of God.
There God is present and reigns even when that
presence is not acknowledged or recognised.

GOD is Incarnate: Jesus Christ
 God remains beyond our comprehension, but God has
 come to us in a human form – a divine-human person
 with whom we deal better.
  • That person, Jesus Christ, cannot be mere
    instrumentality for our salvation.
  • Christ remains God while being human.
  • This too is beyond our conceptual or logical
    comprehension
  • In Christ we are seized by God’s incarnate love,
    and in union with Christ,
  • we respond to God in faith and gratitude
