Abundance of God

Relating to God as a Son, Not a Sinner

I was listening to a Bible teacher and he said, “God wants you to know that God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, that God, Who is the Creator is your Father and it’s important that you maintain a son-Father relationship, a Father-son relationship. When you come to God, you must come to God in the posture, even the emotions, of a son*, not that of a sinner.

One light year is 5.76 trillion miles. There are billions of galaxies in the known universe. Some astrophysicists theorize there may even be universes beyond our own. …
