The Question:

What is your concept of God? i.e. define God for me from your perspective, and very briefly mention the God's attributes from the view point of Christians.

(An) Answer by Abdul Saleeb:

According to Westminster Confession of Faith, a 17th cent. protestant confession, a confession which I hold to and I think is a good summary of the biblical data, God is defined as in the following way.

Chapter 2, section 1:

"There is but one only living and true God, who is infinite in being and perfection, a most pure spirit, invisible, without body, parts or passions, immutable, immense, eternal, incomprehensible, almighty, most wise, most holy, most free, most absolute, working all things according to the counsel of his own immutable and most righteous will, for his own glory; most loving, gracious, merciful, long-suffering, abundant in goodness and truth, forgiving iniquity, transgressiona and sin; the rewarder of them that diligently seek him; and without most just and terrible in his judgments; hating all sin, and who will by no means clear the guilty.

Section 2:

God hath all life, glory, goodness, blessedness, in and of himself; and is alone in and unto himself all-sufficient, not standing in any need of creatures which he hath made,... he is alone fountain of all being... In his sight all things are open and manifest; his knowledge is infinite, infallible, and independent upon the creature, so as nothing is to him contingent or uncertain. He is most holy in all his counsels, in all his works, and in all his commands. To him is due from angels and men, and every other creature, whatsoever worship, service, or obedience, he is pleased to require of them."
