September 16, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair explains the hard-to-grasp concept "The God Who is Far and Near" in message 8 of the "enigma" series
Today in our series enigma, we're going to ponder another mystery. Since we are human beings and understand things from a human perspective, it's hard to sometimes comprehend a God who at times seems to contradict Himself. Now some of us have more trouble with this than others.
We know that God declares in the Bible that He is One, and yet the Bible clearly teaches that God is three persons. Scripture teaches that God is Spirit, that means He's immaterial, and yet Jesus was human (material, flesh and blood). And while we are talking about Jesus, how can He be completely God and completely man both at the same time?
Doesn't it seem a little inconsistent? Doesn't it seem a little bit contradictory?
