About The Book

About ten years ago, I began to realize that I would be writing a book about God. At that time, I had very little detail on exactly what the topic would be, but I had a strong sense that God’s heart and nature were not clearly known by most people.

I had been a Christian for most of my life, but it seemed that there were as many views of God as there were churches. Worse than that, some views, even within Christianity, were dramatically opposite to others.

I often hear people say that God is a loving father, yet they also believe that he is responsible for the death and destruction we endure at times. They portray him as a volatile being.

I want this book to be a breath of fresh air to those who read it. Although the book contains a great deal of scripture taken from several versions of the bible, it is presented in a format which is conversational, clear and practical.

Regardless of your perspective, you can learn from the material. Since I believe that God is consistent and loving, I will show you from scripture, how and why we experience both good and evil throughout our lives. I am convinced that our actions affect our situations and outcomes. Therefore, I will not only present theory but also show you specific ways to apply the principles we learn as we explore the scripture.

This book is not just another work on positive attitude. It is encouraging, but rather than relying solely on our mental abilities, it focuses on God and his awesome power!

  3. Hi Joe. Thank you for taking the time out of your life to share some of your heart, wisdom and understanding on this very interesting and important subject concerning heaven and hell, and to see what our Heavenly Father has to say about all of this. I’ve read through your book completely one time so far, and it’s on my “to do list” to read it again. Looking forward to seeing what I can glean from it the second time around. Thanks again!

    • Hi James,

  4. Thanks for your comment. In the scripture you are discussing, Jesus tells us that the greatest of all commandments is to love God with our heart, soul, mind and strength. The second commandment is like the first. It is to love others. The virtues you mention are good and godly, but God is much greater than the attributes themselves. We certainly should treat others as we would have them treat us, and as we learn in Ephesians 5:1, we should be imitators of God. The thought behind my book is that not everyone lives this way. There is also lots of confusion regarding God’s nature and why bad things often happen to us in life. The scripture tells us that we need to be watchful and sharp so that we are not devoured by the enemy. There are evil people and spirits in the world which live contrary to the virtues you listed. If we learn how to respond and to utilize God’s spiritual power, we can be protected from the destructive forces of evil.

  5. I think the point of religion is to live a full, happy, life; Life in all of its
    fullness. To do this, according to Jesus, you have to love God (ie. love peace, compassion,
    justice, hospitality, generosity, humility, inclusiveness, etc.), and treat others
    the way you’d like to be treated youself. If you live life this way, you’ll naturally
    be good, grateful, and happy (blessed).To worship, is to give worth or value someone
    or something. At some moments in our lives we have to decide to what or whom, we
    give highest value; in this case God ( all manifestations of good) or wealth (all
    manifestations of selfishness).Maybe the point of this passage is for us to look
    at our own lives and ask what they say about our priorities. To what or whom do we
    ascribe highest value in our lives.
