Content with ‘God-at-a-distance’?

“The Apostle Paul informs us that hardness of heart is behind all the addictions and evils of the human race (Rom. 1:21-25). Oswald Chambers writes, ‘It is by the heart that God is perceived (known) and not by reason…so that is what faith is: God perceived by the heart.’ This is why God tells us in Proverbs 4:23, ‘Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.’ He knows that to lose heart is to lose everything. Sadly, most of us watch the oil level in our car more carefully than we watch over the life of our heart.” John Eldredge, in his book, The Sacred Romance (italics and bold text added by dkb, 3/5/13).
