God in a test-tube?

Dick Lucas, in a 1989 lecture on Romans 1:1-17, on the dangers of studying theology at university:

You can’t put God in a test-tube and walk round him saying what you think of him without coming into real peril spiritually.

A peril that is not just confined to university theology departments, of course, but which arises whenever we start thinking the gospel can be turned into a matter of detached appraisal and discussion. See also Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s comments along similar lines.
