Ok, normally I’m pretty hard on Dispensationalism but I have to admit, Lewis Sperry Chafer’s Systematic Theology has some real gems about God, the Trinity, the Incarnation, Jesus Christ, etc. that are most edifying to the believer. Once in a while I’ll pull his works off the shelf and thumb through them, tonight I found this:
The incarnate Christ is the divine answer to the question, What is God like? The God-man expresses as much of the infinite One as can be translated into human ideas and realities. Christ is God; therefore no fiction was enacted when that which is so unlike fallen man is reduced to the comprehension of those who so greatly need to be informed and whose minds are supernaturally darkened. (Systematic Theology vols 1 & 2. pg 355)
A sweet simple truth for the believer; Jesus is God. He is the answer to What is God like?
(who knows…maybe I’ll quote Ironside next?)
