What Is The (True) Character of God?

If God (the deity) is Life, the life force itself, and surely he is, for what else could be? "In the beginning, God.." Then when one reaps consequences of one's very own doings, it still could be said that God 'rewards' and 'punishes'. Yet it is no direct act of his..
- Hebrews 1:3 tells us that it's the character of Jesus, the Son, which is the "exact representation" of God the Father's character, "he is the radiance of his glory and the exact representation of his nature". Elsewhere it says he is "the exact likeness of God" (2 Cor 4:4) and "he is the image of the invisible God, and the firstborn of all creation" (Col 1:15).
- The theory of (and word) "hell" is a mistranslation which should more closely read "the grave". This mistranslation closes many minds to the message of the Bible (and understandingly so!) which message is the full triumph of good versus evil, or, that is to say, the full triumph of life over death. This one thing alone takes much of the shine from the glory of the message, what is called "the good news", which Jesus always called "the gospel of the Kingdom" (of paradise on Earth restored and unbreakable).
