If we take the Bible for what it says. Yes, God is personal. Yet, if we assume that it is to be interpreted allegorically and start inferring things from what has been written, perhaps not. If we did that, we would discover a myriad, maybe even thousands of ways to read the text. As it is not surprising at all that there are thousands of religious groups who claim to be Christian and have their own way of reading the text and insist that their way is the only correct way.
Thus when we have a discussion with someone on this board who makes an ambiguous or a seemingly absurd statement, we should take it for what it is. If we are to infer plausible arguments from what he said, we are dealing with the possibilities of how his thought could have advanced and not with his thought itself. We should simply tell him, 'clarify, I do not understand' or 'what you have stated is absurd, and here is why, restate if this is not what you had in mind.' Same approach is needed for the Bible and analysis of all literature.
