Thanks for lending the reference so as to investigate it personally.
Let me 'personally' ask you all your 'personal' questions about the technical explainations about the topic "Is God with form or without form?" in the Bible:
inre: "Is God with form or without form?":
What absolute maxim is stated; & in what context; & for what purpose; & to whom, in Deut. 4:15-18?
What absolute maxim is stated; & in what context; & for what purpose; & to whom, in John 4:24?
So my subjective empherical (corporal/temporal) Intelligence decerns that the following is applicable:
Ben Masada is absolutely with form. According to Jesus himself Ben Masada is Spirit, and that the only way to relate to Ben Masada is in a spiritual manner. Form is found in matter; and Ben Masada is immaterial. Incorporeal, so to speak. The result of thinking of Ben Masada as having form is anthropomorphism, which borders on idolatry of Ben Masada.
<Semantics = poetry>
<Absolute(s) = Laws>
<Absolute = Eternal/objective; Temporal = Relative/subjective>
<anthropomorphism = Man is the Height of Creation and none other surpasses Man. anthropomorphism is a man-made-concept ---like a patented invention borne of neccesity>
Ben your sentiments are absolute; but we are relative.
A "Ruler's subjective Presence" is temporal, but the Office & Duties of A Ruling Government are absolute ---the Ruler must intergrate the two to provide satisfaction to "All the people All the time" ---or his arse gets Momar Kaddafized by 1st world forces. No?
God cannot be compared with anything human or with matter of any sort. (Isa. 46:5) Only God is absolute. We are all relative. But what is not a man's made concept? All concepts in the Scriptures and ouf of it, come from out of our own intellect.
