God in a Box

I keep hearing how we don't want to put God in a box. What the user normally means is he/she doesn't want to put God in a box he or she doesn't like. More, God has placed himself in a box - the box of his revealed Word, Scripture. Again, to be cynically honest, the box folks seem keenest to resist is the box of Scripture, or those parts of Scripture they don't like.

To refuse the 'box' of Scripture is not humility but humbug, indeed the high road to heresy. Let's have more honesty, if we don't like what the Bible teaches, let's just say say so and nail our liberal colours to the mast instead of hiding behind pseudo-humility.
