The bible is full of contradictions, they say.
Ok: here's one. Moses and God spoke face to face but wasn't allowed to see God face, because if he did he would die.
Some people will no doubt see this as yet another reason to write the Bible off.
But for those of us who know God, it's the only sort of language we can use. We need words to describe a God who is present everywhere and revealing himself everywhere, yet who so often appears to be hidden. We need words to describe a God who is approachable yet scary. We need words to describe a God who sees our frailty, weakness and sin and tells us that this is the place we can be strong. We need words to describe a God who has great power, yet whose power is shown in his Son being crucified.
In the end, there are no words. They run out long before we can make sense of God.
I want to see God face to face. I believe I can. But then, maybe not too close ....

Actually, there are several stories Moses and God hared together. That is why I am so much willing to read more stories about them. Every time I allot moment to understand their stories, there is nothing but feeling is blessed is what I feel. If you want to be closer to God, it is part of the things that you need to do. I don't dream or desire to see God face to face. As long as I feel the presence, then that would be enough for me.
