In a world that is increasingly secular and atheist what idea of God is relevant?
Firstly it must be intelligible.
It must satisfy our intellect.
Secondly it must answer the questions.
The big questions about life, the universe, and everything.
Thirdly it must be real.
It must be something that we can experience.
We are trained from childhood to use our intellect.
We are encouraged to ask questions.
But purely scientific thinking leaves a gaping hole in our lives.
This hole is filled by God.
And what does God expect of us?
To treat those around us with loving kindness and mercy, to be honest and truthful, to act with justice, and to show gratitude and respect.
But most of all to love.
