#087 – Un-Christlike Images of God (A More Christlike God – Pt 3 of 16)

This week we look into the second chapter of Brad Jersak’s book “A More Christlike God.” This chapter is entitled “Un-Christlike Images of God”. Be sure to pick up the book and get into deeper study!

Un-Christlike Images of God …

We turn our attention this week to four types of un-Christlike images of God that are prevalent in the Western Church. Each of these could easily be supported by Scripture! But we take each model and compare it back to Jesus to see how they fall short of who God really is.
