Our thoughts about God as well as our systematic theologies can be as much of an idol as a 2,000 year old carving. We tend to think of time-tested explanations as one and the same as God when, in fact, they are creations of a human mind.
All scripture must be interpreted. The Bible is not self-interpreting. All interpretations are done by imperfect human beings with only a sliver of reality in their grasp. Our thoughts of God are both flawed and incomplete.
If I spend my time defending what I believe about God, I miss the chance of gaining a deeper understanding. Of this, I am certain; I don't have a lock on God. Each day I yearn to know more. Both those I agree (including myself) with and those with whom I do not agree can shed light or deflect it. Upon reflection, I can deepen my understanding of God.
God is a big boy/girl. She/he can take care of him/her self. I, however, am in need of a Savior. One not made in my image or the image of anyone else.
How open are you to a deeper revelation of God?
