Metaphors & The True Nature of God
When reading Holy Scripture it’s very obvious that the inspired authors used many metaphors when trying to describe God and His nature. But, not everything said about God is a metaphor. So, how do we decide upon which things are more on the metaphor side and which things are more literally accurate?
Answer: we take God’s own word and example for it. Jesus is God giving us His own opinion of Himself. And according to Jesus, the eternal, Triune God IS perfect Love, Mercy, Grace, and Goodness.
