Episode Summary

Loneliness has become a real issue for many during this time of pandemic. Feeling disconnected from people leads to loneliness. And you don’t have to be alone to be lonely. When we think back to Creation, one of the earliest problems that God saw was when He said, “It is not good for man to be alone.” In this episode we discuss the doctrine of God's omnipresence. Is God there when we need Him? Is He there even when we don’t need Him? Is He in Heaven or is He on earth? Or both? Can we truly turn to Him at any time and know He’s there? 

 

Topics We Discussed in this Episode

●     [5:45]     Omnipresence, stated simply, means that God’s presence is everywhere. He is all-present or present everywhere. There’s nowhere we can go to hide from Him, because everywhere we go, He is already there.     

●     [8:05]     There is nothing hidden from His sight, because His presence is everywhere.

●     [12:30]     God is not limited by space or special dimensions. He cannot be contained by any space. Is God in Heaven? Is God only in Heaven? 

●     [15:16]     Good theology, which leads to a solid biblical worldview, teaches us that God is present everywhere in His creation, but that He is distinct from His creation.

●     [17:10]     As a believer, because God is omnipresent, you and I are never alone.
