Sermon: God Is Like JesusPastor Brian Zahnd | Friday, August 5, 2011 - 7:00 pm
God is like Jesus.
God has always been like Jesus.
There has never been a time when God was not like Jesus.
We have not always known what God is like—
But now we do.
Understanding that God is like Jesus is essential to our understanding of salvation. We must not think that salvation comes about because Jesus appeases a vengeful God, angry at the actions of sinful man. Salvation comes about because Jesus reveals the Father and does the Father’s work. If we believe God killed Jesus for the sake of justice, we have dramatically distorted our understanding of salvation.
