Who Is God? (Catholic Speaker Ken Yasinski)

By | August 29, 2019


– Hi guys, Ken Yasinski
from catholic speaker .com. Today let’s talk about who is God or who do you think God is? (easy theme music) The vast majority of people
here in North America believe in God. According to the most recent surveys, about 80%. Now what I would find really interesting is to ask people the question, who do you think God is? Or who is God? Or what image of God do you have? Because we can believe in God but we can have all sorts of different images of God. Some people think God
is sort of like a force, like the Force on Star Wars. You have a Jedi Knight like Luke Skywalker who can tap into the Force and manipulate the Force to do amazing things. He can elevate himself up
and float into the air. He can make himself appear when he’s actually not there. He can raise a star ship
up and cause it to float And the thing about this is that sometimes we have this image of God. That God is sort of like a force that we can tap into, so
that we can get our way. Now what’s the problem
with this image of God? Well one, God hasn’t
put us here on the Earth so that we get our way. It’s not about us. The second thing is this, we’re gonna be awfully alone in life, because we will never feel like we can have a relationship, because the Force is
a thing, not a person. And so we will feel very much alone. Other people have an image of God that He’s a master. And what do masters have? Masters have a slave. And so there’s a master
slave type of image when we think about God. Now what about the best slave? Well the slave is there solely to do the master’s will, but he’s bound and he’s
not free and he has to. Because if he doesn’t what happens? He gets punished. And so the slave is
always constantly living in fear of punishment. And sometimes we have this image of God. God’s the master, we’re the slave. And we are bound to do His will, and if we don’t, we’re
gonna step out of line and we’re gonna get punished. What’s the problem with this? Well there is no peace. We’re gonna be constantly looking over our shoulder hoping that God doesn’t get us,
that He doesn’t smite us And there’s absolutely
no peace in the heart. Another image that
sometimes we have of God is He’s the boss and we’re the employee. It’s a little bit more cozy relationship than the previous one. But consider that relationship, why does the employee listen to the boss? So that he pleases the boss and so he gets rewarded. Maybe with a raise, with a promotion, and sometimes we take this attitude in with our relationship with God, and we try and fulfill all these rules, all these regulations, so that we get noticed by the boss, so that he blesses us
or gives us a reward. Now what’s the problem with this? Well our best is never gonna be enough, ’cause we always, we know we always fall short of our best. Don’t we? And so there’s never gonna be a sense of satisfaction in our
life and a sense of peace, because we’re always gonna be striving and striving and striving
to please the boss. So what’s the best image
of God that we can have? The best image of God that we can have is the one that is true. Jesus Christ came into the world to reveal God to us. He is God. He’s Emmanuel, God with Us. He’s the second person of the Trinity, and He’s the Fullness of Revelation. So Jesus in everything that He does He reveals to us God. And one of the things that Jesus did is that He told us to call God Father. Isn’t that amazing? Not boss, not master,
not force, but Father. And if He’s Father,
what does that make us? Sons and daughters. It means that we belong in a family, that we don’t have to
look over our shoulder in fear of punishment, that we don’t have to look up to the boss to try and please him, that we can have a intimate, personal relationship with God. Jesus revealed that God the Father knows every detail of your life. He cares for you. He relates with you personally. He calls you by name. He is always with you. He’s gentle and patient. He is your provider. He is kind and forgiving. My friends God has revealed Himself through Jesus Christ to be your Father. My question for you is this, have you allowed yourself
to be fathered by Him? My name is Ken Yasinski

    God is the devil
    Gadreel or Gaderel (Hebrew: גדר האל‬ gader ha-el, literally "wall of God") is listed as one of the chiefs in the fallen Watchers. This is depicted in the second section of the "Book of Enoch"; "Parables". He is said to have been responsible for deceiving Eve.

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
    Then he is not omnipotent.
    Is he able, but not willing?
    Then he is malevolent.
    Is he both able and willing?
    Then whence cometh evil?
    Is he neither able nor willing?
    Then why call him God? – Epicurus  None have argued successfully against any of the points. Before you spout free will, remember we are told we are all part of your gods plan. If there is a plan then there is no free will.

    Many call Him "Pete Townshend." Many call Him "Carlos Santana." Many cal Him "mom." They're ALL right…though incomplete. GOD IS EVERYTHING. (also called "Creation") Bless you all on this Sunday.
