Does your idea of God conform to your doctrine, and your understanding of the bible, or is your doctrine conformed to your knowledge of God? Because if you claim to be a Christian it really better be the latter.
For too many Christians God is constrained by their understanding of the bible. And that leaves room for only a very small God. This is a theme I'll return to, because the deep tragedy is that the bible can become what keeps you from God rather than pointing you to God.
