The Character of God

The Character of GodThe character of God is one of the most misunderstood subjects in the Bible. People make all kinds of claims about God’s nature and what He does. They misrepresent God’s character with their own opinions and religious ideas.

God has been accused of all kinds of things that are contrary to His true nature.

Some people claim that He causes suffering and destruction. They represent Him as the One who withholds healing from people and keeps them sick. They question His willingness to heal and answer prayer.

Others portray God as distant and uninterested in people’s needs. They claim that He holds back help when people are struggling and in need.

This is not the God I know, and these beliefs keep people in sickness and suffering. It is not God’s character and nature to cause suffering, sickness and hardship. The Bible shows that He cares for each individual person, reaches out to people to meet their needs, heals the sick and provides.
