The Perfections of God

What difference does it make what we believe about God, just as long as we believe in Him? It makes all the difference in the world! Our understanding of God is foundational to our understanding of everything and anything else. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding, Proverbs 9:10. If we are mistaken in our views of God, we will be off-track in our views of ourselves, the Bible, life and the universe. Moreover, if a person can be dissuaded from a true understanding of God, he can be led to believe anything. The Marxists learned this long ago. In regions such as Central America and South Africa, they began their revolutions, not with guns and bullets, but with the pulpits, altering the people's understanding of God. Their ideological weapon is Liberation Theology, the covert redefining of Christian terms with Marxist content.
