There are many people today who believe that homosexuality, abortion, radical feminism, euthanasia and pornography are the problems facing America today. Or that racism and poverty are the most critical problems. However, these are merely symptoms of an underlying cancer - our distorted and twisted view of God. Trying to suppress cultural symptoms apart from the larger context of understanding Who God really is, will only lead to the continued erosion of our cultural foundations. Bill Bright understood this very well. He said, "We can trace all of our human problems to our view of God." Renowned 20th century theologian, A.W. Tozer, whose tombstone bears the epitaph "Man of God," also believed this. He wrote, "It is impossible to keep our moral practices sound... while our idea of God is erroneous or inadequate." And after years of studying American culture, pollster George Barna reflects this truth as well, "Every choice you make is impacted by your perception of who God is." Dr. Bright's heart was to help believers understand who God really is. He often said, "There is nothing more important to teach another believer than who God is." Today, Brad's heart beats with the same passion. Drawing on his experiences in national politics and his study of history, he is committed to putting the God of the Bible back at the center of American culture by deliberately co-opting every major cultural symptom as a platform. DISCOVER GOD is the logical outgrowth of this passion. Before he died, Dr. Bright specifically commissioned his son, Brad, to launch DISCOVER GOD under the newly formed Bright Media Foundation, an affiliate ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ.
DISCOVER GOD is the joint vision of Dr. Bill Bright, the founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, and his son Brad that began as an informal conversation in 2000. It is a strategy to put God back at the center of both the Church and the culture in America.
Mission: Our mission at the Bright Media Foundation is to help people understand who God is and why He matters.

"God is all-powerful. No task is too large or too difficult for Him. He never fails or gets tired. He has the ability and strength to do whatever He pleases. His power is not restrained or inhibited in any way by any of His created beings. God generates power within Himself and does what He chooses to do whenever He chooses to do it. His power is not an abstract idea but a force to be reckoned with." Bill Bright, co-founder of Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ, Int'l) teaching about the character of God.

Love is the supreme expression of God's personhood and flows out of His goodness. It affects all His other attributes. The Bible does not say, "God is holiness" or "God is power," but "God is love" (1 John 4:8). God's heart overflows with His supernatural and unconditional love for us.

The amazing secret of life is this– the more we focus on trying to change ourselves, the more frustrated and defeated we often become.
The more we focus on who God really is, the more we are changed.
We often limp through life wondering why we can’t fix our innermost broken parts. All the while, our real problem is our view of God just barely scratches the surface–like a massive iceberg barely peeking its cap above water. #yourviewofGod #discoverGODdaily

God is Love
Today, most people believe in God, but they ask, "Who is He?" Many are uncertain whether He is a God of love and compassion or simply an aloof world-maker. What do you think? What experiences have led you to your view of God's character?
William Dixon was a lonely man. After the deaths of his wife and son, he often sat by his window, gazing out on the happiness of others. But one night he saw the opposite--a neighbor's house on fire.
An elderly woman, the homeowner, was quickly helped from the smoking threshold. But she had a grandson who was still trapped on a higher floor. The woman began to weep and plead for someone to help the boy. William Dixon spotted an iron drainpipe on the corner of the house. Grabbing it, he scaled the wall. Dixon located the boy and brought him out, but the hand that gripped the hot pipe was covered in severe burns.
The grandmother, whose health had been fragile, passed away the next day. The rescued boy was now an orphan, and a meeting was called to decide his future. When the judge asked who would adopt him, two men each raised a hand. One of the hands was scarred and bandaged. The vote was unanimous; the boy went home with the one who had rescued him.
Jesus died in order to rescue us. A soldier's whip slashed his flesh. Cruel nails stabbed through His feet and hands as he slowly suffocated on a Roman cross. He demonstrated His love for us by taking on flesh, accepting abuse and torture, and dying a criminal's death. One of His disciples, Thomas, cried out, "My Lord and my God!" upon seeing his nail-scarred hands.
Your View of God Really Matters:
Do you believe? You couldn't be there to feel the wounds. But God shows His love for you in so many other ways. Enjoying His love is the greatest blessing life has to offer. Today, offer Him yours in return.
To grow in our relationship with God and each other, through worship, fellowship, discipleship and ministry.
