Resolving that it is reasonable to conclude that an eternal, living, personal, intelligent Being created the universe, there is still a challenge when it comes to gathering accurate information and understanding about such a Being. It is not the case that all Theists have the same perspective when it comes to explaining the details regarding the nature of God. How one goes about gathering such information and the sources from which one draws is another topic for discussion.
In one sense, sharing a common belief in Theism and Intelligent Design is to be celebrated but, from a Christian perspective, it is important to realize that not everyone who says they believe in “God” is saved, a Christian or a Christian Theist. In fact, their concept of God can be shockingly contrary to the concept that is commonly associated with Christianity. It is true that a prerequisite to salvation is believing in the existence of God (He.11:6) but such belief, in itself, is not sufficient for salvation (restored, proper relationship with God). As well, even among Christian Theists there is significant discussion around different views of God when it comes to specifics. It is important that we can have this discussion in a mature, reasonable manner yet knowing that some views are true (line up with the way God really is) and others are not. Also, even when arriving at a true perspective, it is likely not a comprehensive perspective. We must continually seek, ask and knock, increasing and perfecting our understanding.
Our knowledge (intellectual and relational) should produce good “fruit.” In other words, this knowledge is not to simply be academic / intellectual / informational “head-knowledge. Such understanding is to produce transformation on the level of our individual character / conduct and as a society / culture / nation. In this way, we produce fruit that honors and glorifies the God we know and obey (Jn.15:8).
