We are all “theologians.” Actually that’s hyperbole–most of us are theologians. That means that we think about God a lot, and some of us even study about God a lot. Thousands and thousands of books have been written about the subject of God over the millenia, and maybe we’ve read some of them. We also talk to God–in various ways–and we seem to think we know who we are talking to. Our culture is permeated with God-talk. But the thought comes to me–and I don’t think I’ve ever heard this expressed in so many words–“Is it possible that all of our individual physiology, all of our differing life experiences, and all of those things that we’ve heard or read or been taught, have blended together and given each of us our own slightly unique “picture” of God?” Wow, that would give us lots of room for misunderstanding. Just thinking.
