Body, Parts, and Passions

I heard this on a Christian Radio Station

John the Revelator sees a vision of God. He describes God in his vision as having a glorified body, parts and righteous passions. Moses talked with God face to face. Stephen while being stoned saw the heavens open and a vision of Jesus Christ standing on the right hand of God. So, if it is so wrong for us to think of God as having a glorified body, parts and passions, why does the Bible describe him in those terms. Is it just doctrinal milk given to an unbelieving and unsophisticated people. I don't think so. I don't consider myself any better believer that those saints at the time of Christ. If it were wrong to think of God in these terms, the Bible would't describe God using them.

"Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device" (Acts17).
