God allowed Himself to become familiar to us through Christ, knowing that we could not understand the infinite. But God reveals Himself to us in Christ so that we could know Him. Why would God want us to know Him through Jesus the Christ? The answer to this question is answered solely by our view of God. If God were the god that this world's religions have created, he would be unfair and unjust. He would be unpredictable and uncertain. He would coerce and manipulate. There would be no grace. Man's perception of God through this world's religions is not and cannot be correct. Because, man cannot describe God without the indwelling Spirit of God and the indwelling Spirit of God does not indwell the unbeliever of the Lord Jesus Christ. God can only be known through Christ and Christ can only be known through faith. And faith can only be known through revelation of the Holy Spirit."
