      Several questions come to mind from reading this passage. It mentions God having a “face,” a “hand,” and a “back.” Does God really have a physical body? We know from John that “God is a spirit.” A “spirit” is NOT “physical” so we must conclude that God does NOT have a physical body. 20 Questions Kids Ask About God God is not confined to a physical body like us, so He doesn't need to eat or sleep. When the Bible says God "rests," it means he stopped what He was doing.

    God reserves sexual relations for marriage mates only, as Hebrews shows: “Let marriage be honorable among all, and the marriage bed be without defilement, for God will judge fornicators and adulterers.” Married couples must be faithful and maintain their commitment to each other. They find the greatest delight, not by pursuing selfish. But each time, after a while I have had to look away. And in imagination I have turned instead to the lonely, twisted, tortured figure on the cross, nails through hands and feet, back lacerated, limbs wrenched, brow bleeding from thorn pricks, mouth dry and intolerably thirsty, plunged in God-forsaken darkness. That is the God for me!

    Elmer Towns, author of over 80 books and Dean of Liberty University's School of Religion, answers these and many other questions you have wondered n for the new Christian too embarrassed to ask, and for the long-time Christian who still has unanswered questions, this one-volume, indexed resource provides the kind of responses your /5(9).   God-followers have always placed great importance on using the body to procreate as a means of carrying out God’s creation mandate that we “fill the earth and subdue it” (Genesis ). Understanding God’s ownership of the body not only limits behavior that God says is unworthy of his creatures, but promotes behavior that God says is.

God is not composed of matter nor any other imaginable substance. He also cannot be measured, is not spatial, and has no true location (presence is a different concept). Knowing this truth can help us understand the metaphorical speech often used to.

“First it must be remembered that God is incorporeal. He does not consist of certain parts and distinct members, making up one body. For we read in the gospel that God is a spirit: invisible, therefore, and an eternal nature, immeasurable and self-sufficient.

It is also written that. The truth is, Stephen could say no such thing unless what he saw was TWO ETERNAL BEINGS. Now the New Testament plainly says Jesus is God. Both He and the Father are God - one God but two individuals (John ; Heb).

If Jesus is God, as He is, and if God does not have a body, them Jesus is also bodiless. Matt: So, if God was being seen in the OT but it was not the Father, then who was it.

Tony: Hmmmmmmm The Son. Matt: Yep. Preincarnate Christ. The Father does not have a body of flesh and bones. Jesus does--at least now Tony: When Jesus said no one has seen the Father, was he talking bout the people right there at that time. After writing about this new genre of I went to heaven books, I received many comments and emails asking me about biblical examples of those who glimpsed heaven–John in the book of Revelation, Paul in 2 Corinthians, Isaiah in his prophecy.

I will address this briefly today. There are several themes in today’s “I went to heaven” books: Each of the people experienced heaven after.

The short answer to your question is "no", and that references to God's body in the biblical and rabbinic literature need to be understood figuratively. That said, there's a lot more to this than just "no", and there have been many religious Jews throughout history who have believed that God does (or at least can) possess corporeal form.

“Mark Smith’s new book should be required reading for every student of Scripture, no matter how proficient. This is a theo-logy (study of God) for ordinary searching people as well as for scholars.

Smith deals clearly and sensitively with difficult and ambiguous issues such as God’s anger, God’s gender, and human suffering/5(8). Even so, God the Father is often spoken of in Scripture as having human body parts in a figurative manner.

Deuteronomy mentions the arms of God, yet it is clear the writer did not intend to communicate that God has physical arms like people do.

Genesis mentions the eyes of the Lord. Exodus speaks of God's outstretched arm. Second. Millions of readers have come to value the Conversations with God series by Neale Donald Walsch, which has now been translated into twenty-six languages.

Note: Only the NT Canons are regarded as Divinely Inspired by God. Other books like the ones mentioned here may or may not be inspired by God. Even, how the Book of Revelation was selected instead of The Apocalypse of Peter in the NT Canon is also something which we don't really understand.

As other reviewers have noted, The Body of God is a challenge to read. I think that is primarily due to the radical (and she uses the word as well) paradigm shift. It takes a careful eye to distinguish where she departs from the ordinary path and it also helps to have some background in /5.

If God is unchangeable, then how could he become man. Does the Trinity really teach that there are three gods. Is The Trinity A Philosophical Contradiction. How can you believe in the Trinity if the word "trinity" isn't in the Bible. What about where the Bible says there are many lords and gods.

The Bible, particularly the Old Testament, describes numerous occasions when God brought plagues and. Of course not, because the physical body is a limited entity in terms of time and space while God, the Almighty, is limitless and boundless.

A bodily entity is made of some small pieces called atom which are limited in terms of number and quantity. Another moment that conveys this separation of mind and body is when both his mind and his body are afraid of a blow to the head similar to the one that a guard had dealt his father: "I didn't move.

I was afraid, my body was afraid of another blow, this time to my head" (pg. God does not want you to be unsure if you have his Spirit dwelling in you. Because if you don't know whether the Spirit dwells in you, then you can't know whether God will give life to your body at the resurrection.

The text says, "If the Spirit dwells in you, then [God] will give life to your mortal bodies." So before we leave our.The Bible is like an instruction book for His human creation, and it tells us what we need to know to approach the Almighty God and really get to know Him.

It shows that God is love, and God the Father “so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John ). Both people are nurtured to grow, develop, and soar, becoming more of what God means them to be.
