What we know about God

One of my blog “must-reads” is the blog Against Heresies by Martin Downes. As I was reading his post, Introduction to the Doctrine of God, this morning, I came across a succinct bit of wisdom he puts forth:

We can never know God as God knows himself. We will always know God in a way suited to and limited by our creature-hood.

Recognizing this at the outset of our thinking about God, and as we consider what knowledge of him we do possess, and are able to possess, is of critical importance. Much theological mischief is done when we fail to understand the difference between ourselves as creatures and God as Creator in the realm of knowledge.
