God is Good or God is Nice?

Posted: July 10th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: My Thoughts, Spirituality | 6 Comments »

We all say “God is good,” but is He nice?

Jesus affirms that God is good in Mark 10:18. “And Jesus said to him, “Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone.”

Webster says good is :

1. morally excellent; virtuous; righteous; pious: a good man.

and nice is:

1. pleasing; agreeable; delightful:

So is God nice?

    “‘Course he’s not safe, but He’s good. He’s the King I tell you.” Aslan is not a tame lion but he is good.

      that’s a great line! Just thinking tonight about my perceptions of God versus who He really is.

    I’m not sure but the word nice looks like a 14th century and later word…God is everything the Word says He is because He is the Word….this video gives me a good idea who are father is….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzqTFNfeDnE&feature=player_embedded

    Good and nice are definitely, not the same thing. God will always do what is right vs. pleasant or agreeable.

      it’s a “good” thing that He doesn’t
