What are the decrees of God?  Do we have any say in our relationship with God or are we predestined from before the time of creation for salvation or damnation?  Also, who is John Wesley?  What is the Wesleyan way of doing theology and living the life of faith?

What is God’s nature like?  If we, as Christians, worship only one God, then what is the deal God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit?  Do we really worship one God or are there three God’s that demand our obedience?  Or, does any of this really matter anyway?  Can’t we just worship God no matter what his nature is like; besides, who am I to make a truth claim about God’s nature?

What is God?  Is God a figment of our imagination, construct of human pride, or an unknowable entity in control of all things?  Who is God?  With so many God’s throughout history is it possible to know who or what the right God is?  And how does Morgan Freeman play into all this?
