We are often times more focused on being taught about God than being taught by God!
This statement was sent to me by my dad earlier this week. I don't know if I agree fully with it though.
Sure we go to church and learn about God, typically not focusing on what God is teaching us. However I feel that the thought is beyond that. Within our generation it seems that we are searching for information about God and then trying to figure out how it "fits" into our life.
This seems to be the generations reaction to religion and its lack of authenticity, sometimes even lack of theology. As they search for who God is, they miss the need to be taught by God.
