The .org extension of this site’s URL reflects its aim to provide some organization of information related to the topic of the character of God. While teaching on the topic itself, it also presents information on others who are teaching on the topic and resources for further information. An important contribution is the Character of God and the Gospel Glossary in which Biblically-based definitions of important terms are presented.
This site is designed to:
- teach about the character of God
- show people where they can learn more
- help provide resources for other teachers of this message
- encourage those teachers to learn from each other
Use this site as a resource to find information about this topic and to connect with many other sources. Reading the descriptions below of the navigation links on the top of this site’s pages will help you see how to use it.
About tells about me (Ray Foucher), my position, other promoters of this message, the message itself and this site.
Articles lists the various articles (including guest articles) appearing on this site.
Biblical Events provides links to specific Biblical passages and events especially those which would seem troublesome in coming to an accurate understanding of God’s character.
Biblical Examples are topical lists of Bible passages that are examples of particular character-of-God-related topics. For example, there is a list of verses showing that Satan (not God) is the destroyer. Another lists verses demonstrating that sin naturally results in destruction and death. These will be added to as I find new examples.
Contributors lists people who have made or are making significant contributions and providing resources to further our understanding of the character of God. For each one there is a link to a brief profile giving some background, some of the resources they offer including websites from which their contact information is available.
Glossary – this lists words for which definitions are provided. These are, as far as possible based on how the Bible itself defines and uses words. It concentrates on words that are important to correctly understand God’ character and the gospel itself.
Index lists the publicly-available pages on this site.
Q&A this includes answers to questions not related to a particular passage – the more general, philosophical questions.
Resources lists some available materials including audios, e-books, Facebook groups, tracts and videos. Many others are available on the websites of individual contributors. Here I list resources I have produced and ones I particularly recommend.
