The God Face 2
The God FaceIn order to see God’s face more clearly and directly, we must first understand that the problem originates with our own faces. Our faces are disguised and distorted. We view the world through the eyeholes of grotesque masks. The manner in which we hide our faces impedes our ability to accurately perceive the world and the persons within it. These masks are permanently affixed to our faces and can only be removed by the hands of God. By surrendering ourselves and our pretensions to God we allow God to remove our masks. With the masks removed we have the privilege of glimpsing the world as it is and breathing fresh genuine air, not filtered through a filthy mask.
