I think various elements of God are made known. The written word might contain some of it; I'm not sure.<quoted text>
And it's open to interpretation, which is why we have the Supreme Court.
You are afraid of slants yet accept the KJV? Seriously? Do you know the KJV's history at all? If the interpretation is at all important to you, you'd never pick that version.
That's a pretty bad analogy, as a bad translation can make a phrase say something entirely different. That would be like adding a door to a car turning it into a blender. Or just a non-functioning car. The version of the Bible you pick is of the utmost importance. Actually, if you really took the Bible seriously you'd learn Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic. IT always strikes me as odd that most Christians don't bother to read the Bible in it's original languages. Muslims learn Arabic to read the Koran for that very reason. Then again it would be a whole lot easier for God to just put out a clear message in everyone's native language so they'd all understand. But I guess that is too much to ask of an omnipotent deity which supposedly wants humans to understand it properly.
I have concluded there is only one element of God that we may experience on this planet where we find ourselves.
That element is love. And it is the most powerful element.
I am willing to conclude that most, if not all, of the other elements ascribed to God are inventions of men.
Also, any system with insiders and outsiders has nothing to do with God.
My accepting this required more discarding of intsruction and training than any other poster on this thread has experienced, in my opinion.
