What Is God Like?

Do you have an accurate conception of God? Or is something like this:
"Thank goodness, all the crankiness you read about sometimes in his old books - you know, having the earth swallow people up, raining fire down on cities, that sort of thing - all that seems to have faded in his old age.  Now he's just  a good-natured, low-maintenance friend who's really easy to talk to - especially since he almost never talks back, and when he does, it's usually to tell me through some slightly weird 'sign' that what I want to do regardless is alright by him.  That really is the best kind of friend, ins't it?"  ~ What Is the Gospel, by Greg Gilbert
We need to be certain that our concept of God comes from Scripture, and not our own imagination.
