We Don't Decide Who God Is

Quote of the day comes from Francis Chan, writing in Crazy Love:

"A lot of people say that whatever you believe about God is fine, so long as you are sincere. But that is comparable to describing your friend in one instance as a three-hundred-pound sumo wrestler and in another as a five-foot-two, ninety-pound gymnast. No matter how sincere you are in your explanations, both descriptions of your friend simply cannot be true.
The preposterous part about our doing this to God is that He already has a name, an identity. We don't get to decide who God is." Francis Chan, Crazy Love

"God said to Moses, 'I AM WHO I AM..." Exodus 3:14a
