The Personality of a God

In the year of 2003 there are many types of religions that are practiced in the United States, which involves a God, or a divine power. My personal preference of religion is Christianity. I believe in Jesus Christ and the all mighty God Jehovah. The characteristics of a God varies from religion to religion, but all leading up to love, an everlasting peaceful life, and salvation; therefore, giving strength to all human beings that believe in them and has faith in them.

Loving is the first characteristic trait that Jehovah possesses The first book of Moses indicates, for he made man in his own image and gave him dominion over all the land and animals (Bib.Gen.); therefore, this was the first act of love; furthermore, he so loved the world that he sent his only begotten son to save it (Jn.3: 16).

The word provider pertains to Jehovah. He blesses us with food, shelter, clothing, and time. Each day that we open our eyes is a blessing because he didn't have to wake us up. He also gives us the freedom of choice. We don't have to worship him, or keep his commandments, but there is a penalty, for not doing so. If we should die and go to hell it isn't because he wanted us to, but because we chose to. Turning a death ear to God is not wise, for he wants to love us and, for us to love him in return, but if we chose to disobey and
