Many people reject a primitive understanding of God, according to which God is an old man with long white beard sitting on a cloud. This image is implanted in people’s minds by many pictures, paintings and statues which are for making belief easy and palpable. Our opinion is in accordance with those who reject this false religious image about God. This rejection, however, should not include the entire question of the existence of the real God. Jesus’ teaching reflects another image that is about a spiritual and invisible divinity that can not be imagined in a material way or painted by human hands.
But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” (John 4:23–24)
