<smallnoinclude>''This article is about the biblical God.

Not only is God the creator and ruler of the things and beings within those two realms, but he is also the creator of the realms themselves. God created the physical universe, and before he acted in this creation, the universe did not exist. Likewise God did with the spiritual realm.
== God is Revealed: How we know about God Mission=={{:Development Team/Mission}}
Other than creation itself, God is revealed in several ways, including conscience and special revelation == Meetings ==The development team has a regular IRC meeting (See the bible, and prophetsSugar Labs [[Sugar Labs/Events|calendar]]). Most importantly though, God is revealed in Find out more about the meeting time and upcoming and earlier meetings [[Jesus ChristDevelopment Team/Meetings|here]], who is the Son of God.Help: [[Sugar_Labs/Communication channels#IRC.2C_Internet_Relay_Chat |Using IRC]]
== Attributes or Character of God Mini tutorials ==The attributes of God are things that describe who he isdevelopment team hosts mini tutorials covering short (five-minute) topics relevant to writing Sugar activities. Similar Please refer to the way one might describe a close friend to another individual, so too do these attributes describe God's character and nature. Attributes of God include but are not limited to [[WisdomDevelopment Team/Mini tutorials|Mini tutorials page]], [[Infinitude]], [[Sovereignty]], [[Holiness]], [[Trinity]], [[Omniscience]], [[Faithfulness]], [[Love]], [[Omnipotence]], [[Self-existence]], [[Self-sufficiency]], [[Justice]], [[Immutability]], [[Mercy]], [[Eternal]], [[Goodness]], [[Gracious]], and [[Omnipresence]]. These attributes all work in complete and perfect harmony with one anotherto sign up for teaching a topic.
God exercises eternal and righteous judgment == Development systems ==All of the wicked in core Sugar development except system-dependent modifications can be done on a standard computer by compiling [[hellDevelopment Team/Jhbuild|jhbuild]]and editing with your favorite editor (eclipse/pydev, emacs, because of an inherent problem in the human heartvim, namely [[Sin]]etc.). According to the Activity (aka application) development can be done in many environments using pre-compiled [[BibleSupported_systems#Sucrose|packages]], the sacrifice of ("sucrose") or [[Jesus ChristSupported_systems#Starch|images]] on the cross of [[calvary]] and then [[resurrection]], is God's merciful and gracious response to the problem of the human heart("starch").
=== God is Triune =Document your work =={{main|Trinity}}See [[Features/Feature Template]] for an example.
Although the Bible does not use the term, it is clear that God is a triune God, or three in one== Code review ==Patches to Sugar are more than welcome.These There are sometimes referred to as ''God the Father'', ''God the Son'' (guidelines for [[Jesus ChristDevelopment Team/Code Review|Jesuscode review]]), and the ''[[Holy Spirit]]''to get them accepted.
The first hint == Package Sucrose for your distribution ==* Currently there are efforts to maintain Sugar as part of the Trinity is in {{Bible ref[[Community/Distributions/Debian|GenesisDebian]], [[Community/Distributions/Ubuntu|1Ubuntu]], and [[Community/Distributions/Fedora|26}} which relates God saying, "Let Fedora]].* Help us make man maintain good communication with distribution packagers to assist in our image", indicating that God is this. Start a plurality[[Packaging Team]].
The three persons of God are treated as equivalents in these words of Jesus shortly after His resurrection:{{Bible quote|Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.|book=Matthew|chap=28|versesKill Bugs! =19|version=NIV* Help test. See [[{{Upcoming Stable Release}}/Testing]].* See our bug tracking system* Join the [[BugSquad]].
==Project Ideas == Jesus is God * Want to work on an interesting Sugar project, or have an idea of your own? Check the [[Development Team/Project Ideas|project ideas]] page.* Prepare a new Sugar [[Features/Policy|Feature]].* See the [[Summer of Code]] project; ideas, students, mentors, and organization help are welcomed.==Platform Release Cycles==
The first verse of the '''Sugar platform release''' version cycle: | [[Gospel of John0.82]], in which Jesus is referred to as the "Word", makes clear that Jesus is synonymous with God:{{Bible quote|In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God[[0.84]] |book=John'''[[0.86]]''' |chap=1[[0.88]] |verses=1|version=NIV}}This verse not only says that "the Word" (Jesus) is synonymous with God, but also says that the Word was "in the beginning", which means that He existed before all else existed, something that is only true of God.
This is reinforced two verses later, in which Jesus is described as the creator.[[GenesisTemplate:Current Stable Release]] refers to God as being holds the Creator.{{Bible quote|Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been maderelease number.|book=John|chap=1|verses=3|version=NIV}}
==== The Holy Spirit is God ====See [[{{Current Stable Release}}/Notes]] for the release notes.
In the following passage, the [[Holy Spirit]] is referred to as God:{{Bible quote|Then Peter said, "Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? Didn't it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn't the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied to men but to God."|book=Acts|chap=5|versesSubpages =3-4|version=NIV{{Special:PrefixIndex/Development Team/}}
=== God is omniscient ===
God knows everything:{{Bible quote|This then is how we know that we belong to the truth, and how we set our hearts at rest in his presence whenever our hearts condemn us. For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything.|book=1_John|chap=3|verses=19-20|version=NIV}} Because God is outside of [[time]], He can see and knows the [[past]] and the [[future]] as well as the present. == "God" sometimes used to refer to God the Father ==[[Image:Velasco Padre Eterno.jpg|left|140px|God the Father]]In the bible, the word "God" (θεός) does not always refer to God's being as a whole, but more specifically refers to the Person of the Father (God the Father). Here are some verses which demonstrate this:{{cquote|'''John 3:16''' (NASB)<br />For <u>God</u> so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten <u>Son</u>, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.}}{{cquote|'''1 John 4:10''' (NASB)<br />In this is love, not that we loved <u>God</u>, but that He loved us and sent <u>His Son</u> to be the propitiation for our sins.}}Notice how in each case, "Father" can be substituted for "God." For example, "For the ''Father'' so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son," and "not that we loved the ''Father'', but that He loved us and sent His Son." == Terminology == The Bible uses several different words to refer to God."God" itself is not a name, but an [[Old English]] word meaning ''supreme being, diety'',<ref>[ God] Online Etymology Dictionary.</ref> which the translators who translated the Bible in to English chose as the appropriate English word for the [[Hebrew]] ''elohim'' and the [[Greek]] ''theos'' used in the [[Old Testament]] and [[New Testament]] respectively.<ref name="DPK">Kruse, Dale P.,[ More on the ''Names'' of God In the Bible], Advanced Training Program of Evangelism.</ref> The other main term for God is the Hebrew ''adonai'', usually translated ''Lord''.There are various compound words also used in the Bible, such as ''el shaddai'', which means ''God Almighty'' ("''el''" is a short version of ''elohim'').<ref name="DPK" /> ''YHWH'' is given in the Bible as God's actual name. In most English Bibles it is translated as <span style="font-variant:small-caps">''Lord''</span>, in small capitals. The name has various other English versions, including Yehovah, Jehovah, and Yahweh.<ref>McHyde, Tim, [ God’s Name: LORD, Yahweh, Yahveh, YHWH, YHVH, Jehovah or Yehovah?]</ref> ==See also==*[[Other gods]]*[[Atheism]]*[[Christianity in Conservapedia]] == References =={{Reflist|2}} ==External links==*[ Theopedia - God]*[ - God]*[ - God]*[ Opposing Views: Is There a God?] [[Category:ChristianityDevelopment Team]][[Category:Divine BeingsTeam]]
