In contemporary terms, this is what religious — and especially theological — folks tell you when they want to tell you about God: come see God’s facebook page!
We can describe Him. What He likes. Or She, depending on who’s describing. What He doesn’t like. What movies He approves of. What political issues. Whether He’s pro-zombies or pro-pirates. Etc.
We can describe Him, but these different versions don’t match. There’s one hundred variations what God is like. Who are you going to believe? On what basis?
I can describe Him, tell all about Him. But knowledge about is head knowledge. Knowledge of, true experiential relational knowledge is of the heart.
I can describe my mother. But the older I get, the less certain I am that I truly know her.
Maybe you know about God. But do you know God? Have you seen Him face-to-face, and not just facebook-to-facebook? I will someday.
