Can a man look upon God?
Many religions teach that we could never look upon God. In some cases this is because they believe He has no form, and as taught by the Nicene creed, is without body, parts or passions. But if we reason this out together, the question could be asked, "Can God not show Himself to us?" If God is God, he is omnipotent and can do anything. If he could not show himself to us, he would cease to be omnipotent. In fact, there are several scriptures that refer to people seeing him. I'm not sure if people use a different interpretation to explain these witnesses, but I think their testimonies are clear. But I think that because they do not fit in with the creeds of today, they are dismissed.
