God and Religion

THERE ARE PEOPLE who think they do not want God, but in reality what they do not want is a religion which attempts to sell them a lesser god. They do not want somebody trying to convince them there is only a single, inerrant, infallible, sacred method of talking about or thinking about or experiencing God. They do not want others to tell them God is understood only by a select group of people who huddle together under a specific name or title, nor that this group is the sole custodian of truth. The reason people do not want this, and the reason people reject it, is because they know it isn’t true. They know at least enough of God to know he is beyond man’s religion. They know that if he wasn’t, he wouldn’t be much of a god at all.
