But another problem is that the elephant is silent and the men just have to do their best to work out what it is. What if the elephant opened it's mouth and described itself? We are not just left in the dark to make our best estimates of what God is like. God is not silent.
Psalm 50:3a Our God approaches, and he is not silent.
He has shown us exactly what he was like in Jesus.
Hebrews 1:1-3 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.
