God has revealed himself to us in scripture through his promises and actions in history. The most clear revelation of the nature of God can be found in Jesus. In Jesus we have God walking among us and speaking directly with us.
In Jesus we see the most clear revelation of the nature of God. We most of course see Jesus in his own terms. Many people wish to create Jesus in our image.
Jesus is love. This is true, but many people err and think they can simply take parts of Jesus that they like and get ride of what they do not like. Jesus also teaches of the need for repentance.
We must always come to scripture open to learn. God wishes to speak to us if we wish to have ears to hear.
