195 Is God As Simple As You Say?

Verse 1

For all of these many years, what people have seen

is not only the Spirit, a human, a male,

but many things that don’t fit with their notions,

so humans aren’t able to fully grasp God.

They keep half-believing and half-doubting Him—

as if God does exist but is also a dream—

which is why, even to this very day,

people do not know what God truly is.

Chorus

Can you truly sum up God in one simple sentence?

Could God be as simple as you claim Him to be?

Verse 2

Do you dare say Jesus and God are the same,

or boldly say God and the Spirit are the same?

And are you comfortable saying

that God is just a human, a human clothed in flesh?

Do you truly have the courage to assert,

“The image of Jesus is the great image of God”?

And are you able to use your eloquence

to explain God’s disposition and image?

Chorus

Can you truly sum up God in one simple sentence?

Could God be as simple as you claim Him to be?

Bridge

Now do you truly know what God is?

Is God a human, a Spirit, really a male?

Can only Jesus do the work God wants to do?

If you choose any one of the above

to sum up the essence of God,

you’re an ignorant loyal believer.

Chorus

Can you truly sum up God in one simple sentence?

Could God be as simple as you claim Him to be?

Verse 3

If God worked in the flesh once and only once,

then would you delimit and define Him?

Can you understand Him with a single glance?

Can you sum Him up from what you’ve seen in life?

If God came to earth twice, incarnated twice

to perform work that’s very similar,

how would you then look upon Him?

Would you leave Him forever nailed to the cross?

Chorus

Can you truly sum up God in one simple sentence?

Could God be as simple as you claim Him to be?
