Let me introduce you to my deity.

Some people talk about God from personal experience. Others speak theoretically about God, as if they never expect to know for sure. The silliness of that approach becomes more obvious when you substitute your own name, or the name of your best friend, in place of God’s in these discussions. Do you “have faith” that your best friend is a Korean-American lawyer, or is your best friend really a Chinese-American lawyer? Philosophical beliefs about “your reality” won’t change the country his ancestors came from. Statements about “my reality,” “my belief,” “my opinion,” “my faith,” or “my philosophy” don’t make as much sense when they are applied to a real person. If you want to know what God is really like, meet him.
