This is apparently only the supposition of agnostics and unknowledgeable "Christians", who do not believe that our God can be understood because they do not know Him. When He reveals Himself to them on an individual basis, they will change their minds quickly.
Because God CAN be understood by His greatest creations. He put the knowledge of Himself in every man's DNA. Because of this, we will be WITHOUT excuse when we each stand before His Throne to be judged.
You cut out the part where I say that my God is NOT "anthropomorphic", but WE are "theopomorphic" instead, since we are made in HIS Image, not the other way around.
But you DO want to worship God. Your heart cries out to worship the Living God, and to return to the Father, no matter what you call your search for truth (of course, buttuming that you truly HAVE a "search for truth" going.
God Himself, by His Spirit, is continually wooing your spirit to Himself. The heart of your very being wants to worship the Ever-Lasting God of the Universe. But without knowledge, so you worship love, or drugs, or money, pride, or other things in the World rather than the Living God.
Because I am not familiar with your constructs, it goes straight over my head, I am afraid. So there's not much I can respond to this esoteric statement with.
From Man's perspective, this is perfectly correct. God even calls his creations "ants" or "worms" at various times, as He attempts to reinforce the fact of His absolute ownership over the Universe to His Creations.
If you can attempt to pbutt judgement on your Creator, more power to ya. But I ceased this useless endeavor many years ago.
First, God is not an "it". He is the FATHER of the Universe. He is ALWAYS referred to as "HE", in the Holy Scriptures. Only a heretic or complete unbeliever would use the word in reference to their Creator.
Second, we have no right to attempt to pbutt judgment on the Creator. Therefore, using the words "blame" and "God" in the same sentence to describe the same Being is an oxymoron, since there is no "blame" to be found in God.

The question that I always like to ask these "lay-preachers" such as MacDaniel, is: What is one supposed to DO in "heaven" for all eternity, contemplate one's navel? There is certainly nothing there that...
He is not just "my" God, friend. He is also YOUR God, whether you accept Him or not.

The Greeks were late-comers to the theological scene. They just inherited earlier racial memories of those who came before them, like the Babylonians and Sumerians.
Since ALL men on the face of the Earth descended from TWO persons, Adam and Eve, the Father and Mother of our flesh, men have been collecting and "cross-pollinating" their cultures. This has especially become true since the inhabitants of the earth were scattered to the Winds, and their tongues confused so that one group of people are unable to understand all others.
Because of this, true knowledge of God has been lost among the sons of men. Only when one turns to Christ does this true knowledge of God return to men.
"Derogatory"? I butture you, there is no accusation of the Hindus I can make which would speak louder than their deeds. But I was simply stating facts about their religion.
At least they are able somehow to recognize the Hand of God (no matter how they might conceive of Him) in His Creation. Which is something many more "civilized" people are unable to do. For this, I give them the Credit Debt properly due them.
Of course, they also practiced cannibalism and human sacrifice.
I do agree with you that their "Great Spirit of the Sky" is not exactly an EXACT image of the Father, as Jesus is.
God said these practices are wrong. That makes them wrong.
With that I agree. Human religion (as opposed to revealed religion as found in the Christian Scriptures) is bizarre.

Since Christianity is in no way "evil, absurd, or illogical", as the beliefs which God tells us must not be practiced are, their very existence in opposition to the Revealed truth of the Gospel is evil, and one Day will be wiped out by God, and will no longer be found in the Universe.
It is not so much that "they disagree with what I happen to believe", but "they disagree with God's Revealed Will, and so are evil".
Sorry, bud, but YOU are the one who is continually being "scammed" by Satan. If you continue listening to him, you will one day see just how "scammed" you have been.
God does not "scam" anyone, nor can He be "scammed" Himself.
Sorry, bud, but Jesus tells us "an evil and adulterous generation seeks and craves after a sign, but NO SIGN will be given it, except the Sign of the Son of Man being crucified, dead, and buried, and then three days later rising from the Dead."
God HAS given you a "sign". And it is the ONLY "sign" you are going to get from God. Accept it or reject it at your own peril.
I personally advise you to accept the sign He gave us.
I don't really care WHAT anyone thinks about me. They are free to think what they will about me. Some men love me, and some hate me. That is the way of the World. I accept it, and embrace the Cross of Jesus Christ willingly.
