Lecture 6, I AM: The Name of God:
The majority of humanity maintains belief in the existence of an impersonal, amoral deity that functions in a manner similar to a force of nature. Since this being does not possess standards of morality and, therefore, impose them upon created order, attendants to this view express a freedom to live how they would without restrictions. The truth, however, is that these individuals have placed themselves in the bondage of sin and disbelief, ripping from themselves all hope of redemption from their sin and state of condemnation. The revelation of the Lord in Exodus 3 as “I AM WHO I AM,” a personal, moral God, demonstrates the high demands God places upon His creation, but it also offers a hope of salvation and redemption not extant in the alternative.
