Psalm 34:8 (NIV) Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
[The Christian] creed requires them to believe in the personality of God, and they have been taught to pray, "Our Father, which art in heaven." Now personality and fatherhood carry with them the idea of the possibility of personal acquaintance. This is admitted, I say, in theory, but for millions of Christians, nevertheless, God is no more real than He is to the non-Christian. They go through life trying to love an ideal and be loyal to a mere principle. -- A. W. Tozer
