Do you try and minimize God so you can feel comfortable? Do you emphasize certain characteristics of God and downplay others because they are hard to explain or comprehend?
There is a common practice of picking and choosing characteristics of God and putting together a sort of Mr. Potato Head version of God; one that we feel safe around.
Typically this involves an emphasis of love, forgiveness, and grace, while downplaying justice, wrath, and holiness. Too often we approach scripture simply wanting to confirm what we already believe about God, not hungry to learn more about who He is.
This is also a common thread we run into when we talk about the Old Testament. Admittedly, it does have some “hard to swallow” information to digest in it, but we can get closer to God by studying the information and reasoning, and applying it to our daily lives.
