True Knowledge of God

True knowledge of God is had within the human heart. Do not imagine that you truly know him apart from the knowledge of him in your heart.

This is not to say that simply nothing can be said about him in terms theological, philosophical, intellectual, rational or reasonable. True knowledge of Him does not exclude any of these modes of discoursing about His operations or manifestations. But, rather, it is not in or through any of these that He is truly encountered in His Person. As much as these modes of understanding His operations reveal what He is they simultaneously hide Him as well.

True experience of God is Personal, experienced by human persons, and in relation to human persons,  made in His image. We don’t move and live and have our being in abstract concepts but in and with Him, and also one another.

This is the root and source of creation, as well as its purpose.
