The attributes of God

            The traditional attributes of God for the Christian religion include that Christians see God as being unseen as a person. This means that He is there even if no one has seen Him in the flesh. Also they believe He is unique. Christians believe that God cannot be compared to anybody else. They also believe that no man is equal to Him and that there is just one God.
             They also believe in the Trinity, there is one God and He can be seen in three ways - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The Son, Jesus is God incarnation. God to Christians is also infinite. No man can measure God and He is not limited by space or time. He is also known as Personal, God is not an 'It' He has personality.
             Christians also say that God is eternal. They think God has always been there and always will be there. Thomas Aquinas said, "Gods essence and existence are identical. Gods essence it to exist eternally." .
             God is omniscient. This means He is all knowing. He is omnipresent - everywhere and omnipotent - all-powerful.
             God is also seen as kind and good. He has perfect goodness and He has no badness. He is loving, the love God has for people is Agape this is unconditional love, (loving people no matter who they are or what the have done.).
             He is also immutable this means He is unchangeable. He always looks the same and always will be the same. He is also the creator, He made the world the way it is and man in His image.
             I have mentioned thirteen traditional attributes of God in the Christian religion. I will now pick five of these and explain how these attributes may cause a problem for 21st century believers and how they may be resolved.
             Since God is seen as omniscient, this means that He knows everything. Some people may feel that this means they have no freedom of choice, or if the do have the freedom of choice they may be pressured into what they decide because they feel that because God knows everything, He may judge them in the next life on the choices they make in this life.
