No One Like You
May 2020 - Aug 2020
This summer, we are starting a new series called, No One Like You. We want to explore who the God of scripture really is. What is He like? What are His attributes? What even are attributes? We are going to use the first statement from our EFCA doctrincal statement as a blueprint to explore, outline and apply some of these attributes.

No One Like Him - God's One-ness
Sun, May 31, 2020
He cuts down cedars, or he chooses a cypress tree or an oak and lets it grow strong among the trees of the forest. He plants a cedar and the rain nourishes it. Then it becomes fuel for a man. He takes a part of it and warms himself; he kindles a fire and bakes bread. Also he makes a god and worships it; he makes it an idol and falls down before it. - Isaiah 44:14-15 (ESV) We are monotheist. We believe and confess that there is one God. That's one of the things that makes Judeo-Christian belief unique both historically and among world religions. We almost take it for granted that people would believe otherwise. But what does that mean? How does the scripture talk about it? And why is that important? This week we begin to look at the attributes of God through our doctrinal statement by considering the Oneness of God. I want to encourage you to read through Isaiah 44 as we start this study. This will provide an important grid for the rest of our study.

The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! Who is like the LORD our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth? - Psalm 113:4-6 (ESV) Zeus, Apollos, Hercules, and Aphrodite are a few of the names I remember. Reading Greek and Roman myths are a mainstay in most educations in the humanities. This pantheon of gods are a heavenly soap opera that's used to explain the world around us and the difficulties in it. These immortals suffered from all the human foibles, just super-sized. Is that what the God of the Bible is like? Is He just a super-sized version of us?
