The goodness of God may be discovered in all of his relationships with his creatures. It is most effectively demonstrated in his moral attributes of purity and integrity, and in the entire complex of characteristics that are identified as his love. Sometimes these attributes are viewed as conflicting with each other, as in the case of justice and love. When correctly viewed, however, this is not the case.

- What is the importance of the holiness of God, and why is it so difficult for humans to understand this aspect of God’s nature?
- How does our understanding of Jesus help us especially to understand the love of God?
- Some have contended that there is tension between God’s justice and his love. How would you respond to such a charge?
