Can God Be Known?
In this era of freethinkers and another generation of self motivated people, ask yourself, do I need God?
Yes. You do. And I am not talking about the new age god which I understand is self. God in you. You are god. Determine your own fate.
I am talking about the God who created you in His image. The God who holds the world together. (Where do you think the atoms come from? Someone had to create them. Where do you think the posibility of their ever having been a big bang came from? The materials came from somewhere. Something gave intellect to the molecules.)
Can God be known? is the question posed in the title of this post. And I say, yes. God can be known. Not completely. There is always going to be an aspect of God we humans will not be able to understand or even grasp. The revealed things of God belong to man but the hidden things belong to the Lord Almighty, What we can know about God is revealed in the Bible.
And in nature. Yes, God can be known by the fact that the sun rises and sets. Stars are in the sky. The sun is there also. And the moon. As well as the planets.
You got up this morning. Do you think you did that by yourself? That you made your own body? That you breathe air that doesn't kill you? That you can taste and see and hear?
But that doesn't mean you are god. God shares His throne with no one.
On the other hand, God to a certain extent can't be known. As I said, not completely. There will always be hidden aspect to God. He doesn't need you to know everything about Him or know Him completely for Him to exist. No process theology allowed. We exist for His pleasure not so that He can learn anything from observing us. He doesn't have to learn anything.. .
