    He is the I Am! How can humanity define an indescribable God? The alternative is to be silent. But I suspect God would rather see toddling steps toward praise than no movement at all. (There I go with that “Father” comparison again…)

  • Hmm.. making God into our image. Yeah, we do that. And I agree with ttm that He would probably rather have that than nothing. At least it’s an attempt to know Him.

  • I found your site via Think Christian. I really dig some of the thing you’re working out here. And I love “Life After God.” I really got into “Generation X” when it was first published and I had these crazy aspirations of being an artist and living in a loft in Paris. Fortunately, God rescued me from my self-obsession.

    Anyway, I just wanted to pass on my blessings and thanks for a great site.
