Do you think there a difference between the God that Christians worship and the God that is described in the Bible?

  1. People already have their views and morals and simply use the Bible as justification. They see what they want to see. So liberals ignore the homophobic and sexist parts and focus on the help the poor parts. People see God as a reflection of themselves. He agrees with everything they agree with and he loves them. That’s why there are so many religious people, God is so vague that everyone molds him in their image.

    No.
    Elohim is described perfectly in the Bible. All real Christians should worship him. Also Mitt Romney.

  3. Perhaps in imagination. But, I suppose, God knows of our shortcomings in worship. However, it behooves us to read up on him so that we know better how to worship him. Getting to know his Son is a great start.

  4. A certain amount of humility should be recognized when answering this question. We do not know everything about God, and what we do know is part of an on-going process. But, we act in faith knowing that God was continue to reveal himself to us through his word and through this world.

    My question, however, was addressed more to those who condemn God on their own moral standards for the moral atrocities they see in the Biblical text. What sane person would follow the God, for instance, that Richard Dawkins describes? He has to feel there is some disconnect between what the majority of people think God is, and the description of God in the Bible.

    I, for one, think that his views are naive and ill informed. He is forcing his personal interpretation on the rest of the believing world. Why we should trust a person who doesn’t believe in God to interpret correctly I don’t know.
