Kind of ruin the whole thing about "faith" and not straying to evil if some gigantic bearded guy with lightning bolts coming out of his arse was watching your every move. Nobody would do anything wrong.

You can't see god because there is absolutely no evidence at all that god exists. God, as a concept, was created by people for a variety of reasons -- one of which is to have a mechanism to control people who have been taught not to question authority or make people in a position of authority accountable.
So He knows who had FAITH in Him. You can tell by the responses to your question that some who can't see find reasons to convince you He's not real. There actually is better evidence of God and stories of the Bible being accurate than other theories. Look for materials by Dr Ken Ham. He answers these types of questions with proof and accurate information!! It's worth a look!!
The Bible tells us that no one has ever seen God (John 1:18) except the Lord Jesus Christ. In Exodus 33:20, God declares, "You cannot see my face, for no one may see me and live." These Scriptures seem to contradict other Scriptures which describe various people "seeing" God. For example, Exodus 33:19-23 describes Moses speaking to God "face to face." How could Moses speak with God "face to face" if no one can see God"s face and live? In this instance, the phrase "face to face" is a figure of speech indicating they were in very close communion. God and Moses were speaking to each other as if they were two human beings having a close conversation.http://www.gotquestions.org/seen-God.html
If you want to actually see god then maybe you could manipulate your mind and make yourself believe that you saw him. That could work. Or you could just draw a picture of what you think he looks like. Or you could just take some crazy drugs lol. You probably can't see him because just about every religion says you can't see him. If religion said you can see him then you'd be able to see him.
God has come here once before in flesh form and walked among us and some accepted him and then others did not. Same as today if he was to once again make a visit we would not believe him even if we seen him face to face. Some day I believe it to be very soon he will appear only in the clouds and call for his children to come home with him. Everyone will know for sure it is him then, you would be an idiot not to then, LOL.
Because God is not of the same physical being that we are. Think about it this way. Let's say that you created on your desktop a two dimensional world. Around it, you made a two dimensional universe. On the earth, you made two dimensional land and seas, and on the land you made two dimensional plants. Then you made two dimensional stars and planets to put around your two dimensional world. Then in the seas you put some two dimensional sea creatures, and in the air you put some two dimensional birds. Then you go back to the land and make two dimensional bugs, reptiles, mammals, and then you make two two dimensional people (we'll call the Mr. Flat and Mrs. Flat). So you put Mr and Mrs Flat on this beautiful two dimensional world that you made for them. (See Comments)
God has a physical body..we are made in his image.. Gods appearance is too great. God said in his word that no one can look upon his face and live. Moses got to see Gods hind parts.. His body, his glory passed by him because God allowed him to see.
God is a spirit and those worshiping him must worship him "in spirit and truth." - John 1:18. If man can not stare at the sun for a long period of time - what makes man think that they can see God and live - the one who created the Sun, Moon and Galaxy. (Genesis 1:1) A higher being had to create man and the universe - if not - WE ARE ALL IN TROUBLE. Man can not rule each other (Jeremiah 10:23) There is so much corruption, greed, hate, discriminatory practices and hopeless conditions that if there were not a higher being to intervene - we all will live our lives in the hope that man will grant us equal fairness - which is a scary thought.
God is fair; God can not lie (Titus 1:2) God is a loving God - giving us all the opportunity to recognize him. God is real - you do not have to believe - the choice is YOURS.
However, one day we all will see and BELIEVE - if it is not too late for some of us........
First God has no physical form unless He chooses to take one Second, in the Bible He says no human can look in the glory of God and live. Only the levite priests, and among them only a chosen few like Moses and Aaron, were allowed to be in His actual presence and then only after elaborate and strict cleansing and dressing rituals and blood sacrifices every time they went before God.
can we see air...no...can we see fragrance...no... we feel them... believe, faith and your connection with God is like that. we cant see Him...but he is there... we cant feel Him...but He is always there for us. feel the depth my dear.
Our eyes would not be sufficient tools for processing God's transcendent nature. In order for such nature to be seen, it would have to be converted into visible data, somewhat like how sound waves can be "seen" when converted to visible bar graphs. The Bible tells us that humanity is the image of God. In essence, God's transcendent nature is converted and seen by viewing those humans who fully represent Him. All humanity is designed to do this, but few actually do; and if the Biblical account is to be believed, only one human did this fully throughout His entire life.
Assuming God exists, he would be a fifth dimensional being. He would exist simultaneously in every time and place, including the other planes of existence. This would make him less dense than a beam of light...
God isn't meant to be seen. He is a spirit. He did send his son whom he said was created in his own likeness. Jesus Christ. So you can assume then that Christ looks somehow as God would have had God been a man.
Asslam O Alikum All Comunnities. First of All see Your right hand physics, it is same as written in Arabic ALLAH(God). Allah is alongwith every where. But we have limited vision. Lets call history as Al-Quran describes "When Jews Asks Hazrat Musa Allahi Islam We want to see ALLAH (God) for our belief in. Hazrat Musa Allahi Islam request as Their Nation did to them. In reply Allah(God) asks You are unable to see me as when Allah flashed on Hill it destoryed and All Viewers died except Hazrat Musa Allahi Islam and they were fell in slept. No One is able to See Allah proved from this incident. Later on, On Request of Hazrat Musa Allahi Islam those people were again awarded life. I think Our Meterilistic Body is unable to visiualized Allah(God). More After Judgement Day(Qayyama) it is describes we will able see God(Allah) perhaps we will have special Visioned to See Allah. Read Quran and Hadeeth you will find truth what is reality? Thanks
Because we don't have the strength to. God is the greatest. Even if he reveals Himself in front of a large mountain, it (the mountain) will turn into dust, as it did in the time of Moses. On the day of judgement, though, God will give our eyes the power to see Him. God is everywhere and we can't imagine what He looks like. Besides, faith is all about believing in in something you can't see. Although God did make is so obvious that He exists and has provided us with so much proof.
