Behind everything lies good. That’s the main belief of Christianity.

Christianity says that something does indeed lie behind the physical realm.  But it’s not an abstract concept, like, for instance, mathematics or the laws of physics.  Neither is it just a force, like the force of gravity, or nuclear forces, or anything like that.  Christianity says that what lies behind the physical realm is a living being.  It is a living entity that has real existence, and it has personality, which means it has distinctive qualities that give it character.  Christians call this living entity with personality, “God.” 

Christianity says that behind everything in the physical realm lies a real being called God.  God is not a concept, an abstract, a set of natural laws, a force, or anything like that.  God is a real, living being with a certain personality. 

Christianity makes a bold assertion about this being called God.  Christianity says God is good. God is 100% good. God’s essence, God’s essential nature, God’s personality, is good.  Good is the essential character of God. And so, since God is what underlies and is behind everything in the physical universe, then good underlies everything in the physical universe.

This is the most important assertion Christianity makes—that behind everything lies good.  The essential nature behind everything is good.
