Perhaps it's the presentation....

Not here of course. I'm not talking Babble specific in any way.

But there's a great scene in The Cosby Show where Vanessa brings home her working class fiance of six months, whom she has not mentioned to her parents. And Cliff tells him that yes, they dislike him, but their dislike has nothing to do with him. He compares the young man to a beatiful sizzling steak presented on a smelly garbage can lid.

It holds true for anything, not just God. Presentation can be important. I've always admired the Mormon ideal of being a missionary through the way you live your life. And then when people ask the secret of your happy life, you tell them that *your* answer has been a love of God. That seems to me to be a beautiful presentation of God.
