We marvel at His creation and wonder, what is God really like. As we review the Bible, we compile a list of His characteristics, attributes, and traits.
We find that God is not each of these things at some point in time. He does not exercise this trait, then that one, as we do, to the exclusion of others. We, for example, forget about love when we are angry. Not so with God.
God is 100% of all these traits all the time.
Consider this list carefully. Some of these God has been gracious enough to share with us. Others are reserved solely for Himself. We should do our best to use those He has shared to the fullest of our ability. A Classification of the attributes God shares here.
Righteousness / Just
Goodness / Grace / Mercy
We must remember, and understand, that our goal is to become more Christ-like. This means moving closer to the attribues and characteristics of God, as displayed in Jesus Christ. In one sense, it means moving closer to those attributes listed above that God shares with us. In another sense, becoming Christ-like is nothing more than exercising the fruits of the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22-23 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. NKJV

How do you convince a seeker of the truth that he should listen to you? Why would I need to do that? I do not advocate "churches" and "priests." I am no one's "priest" and I am certainly not going to move to America and make my fortune establishing a "church."
What are you saying that will convince him that you have discovered the key? God is goodness and truth.

So how do you know this is true?
a) that 'Jesus' told us to fear the one who can throw both body and spirit into the fire - implying that this is not the preferred option - implying that the spirit can and should survive physical death;
