The Podechesis Podcast Episode 5: On God: Part 1

“God is a mean kid sitting on an anthill with a magnifying glass, and I’m the ant. He could fix my life in five minutes if He wanted to, but He’d rather burn off my feelers and watch me squirm.” -Bruce Nolan (Jim Carrey) – Bruce Almighty

“There’s a difference between knowing God and knowing about God. When you truly know God, you have energy to serve Him, boldness to share Him, and contentment in Him.” – J. I. Packer, Knowing God

What is God?  Is God a figment of our imagination, construct of human pride, or an unknowable entity in control of all things?  Who is God?  With so many God’s throughout history is it possible to know who or what the right God is?  And how does Morgan Freeman play into all this?

In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Brett, Jim, and Allen will discuss question number four of John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter CatechismWhat is God?  Working under the assumption that God exist and is particularly knowable, as the Catechism does, the boys have a great discussion on how the Old and New testaments of the bible reveal who God is and how to know him.

Along the way, Brett gets made fun of for being 40 and not watching movies past 1989, Allen reveals what he would do with God powers (Hint: it’s a really good deal for Georgia sports), and Jim reveals for the first time his 90s Christian Alternative Band, Shifting Shadows.
