I haven’t seen them for awhile and when I have seen them I haven’t stopped in to look at what was being said. I know, I should have. Anyhow, here is the typical lead sentence on some atheist blogs. “How can Christians expect us to believe in God when they can’t even describe the God that they believe in?”
I don’t get it. What do atheists mean when they say we can’t describe the God that we believe in?
Aren’t these terms descriptions?
Slow to Anger,
A friend to the poor,
Full of Grace,
Mind / Logos,
Triune: Father, Son and Spirit,
Source of objective morality,
Lord of lords,
King of kings,
Sustainer of the universe.
Independent of His creation,
Elohim - The strong One, mighty Leader, supreme Deity.
Yahweh - Self-existent, changeless, Provider, Present,
Adonai - Majestic, Master, Owner.
I’m sure there are more descriptions than this. So what do atheists mean when they say we can’t describe the God in which we believe?
