It bothers me when people say they’ve found God on their own terms. Even worse is theology that goes in reverse. That is, instead of trying to find out who God is, and reason from there how they should be, they look at how they are, and from that reason how God should be. That’s making God in your own image, making Him what you want Him to be. But unless you believe God’s made up, that can’t be really God. I don’t know, unless you believe that God is not truly God, I don’t see how you can believe that you can find God, know about Him, unless He tells you. And unless you believe God is not good, I don’t see how you can believe that who He is is different from how He says He is in the Word, so that you alone know what God is really like.
