There are a whole lot of folks out there, calling themselves ordained to preach God's words. Many takes a sentence or phrase from the scripture and propagate an entire theology around same. In so doing, the claim, to know God and speak for him. They attest to his unchangeble character and thus, condemn many who otherwise would have come humbly to Christ. I have taken the position that we are each akin to one of the six blind men positioned around an Elephant (God) and asked to define what an Elephant is. In that Indian story, each man defined the elephant based on his experience from touching that little part of the Elephant he was exposed to. So is our understanding of God as well. We only know that little part that has been revealed to us and as such should be very careful in then objectively defining god based on this.
