Nobody taught me that God wants me to believe in him more than I understand him. Not really. But it's pretty obvious when you think about it. Nobody understands God. Some teachers purport to understand God's ways, and spend a long time talking about it.
All I know for sure is that I want God to make himself known to me, personally. I believe in God and I have faith in God communicating directly with me, at his own times and in his own ways.
