Jesus made God explicit

Jesus made God explicit - and he clarified in his teachings that (from that time) things needed to be made explicit.

Jesus was himself God explicit.

So, from then, and only from then, could God freely be chosen.

(So long as God was inexplicit, God could not really be chosen - freedom, human agency, depends on explicitness.)

I always felt it was the other way around, that if God didn't remain "hidden", it would interfere with human agency. People wouldn't be able to escape the idea that they're being observed in every decision they make.

@Carter - I think the way it works is that we are aware and decide - the Holy Ghost is potentially everywhere, but probably 'by invitation only'.
