Knowing God, Chapter One

December 12, 2006

knowinggodKnowing God, chapter one: Discusses some of what it means – the study of God. The practical benefits, some dangers and problems, and basic truths or assumptions are given prior to embarking into the study itself. A warning against Skepticism is given, alluding to the ever-prevalent notion affecting our postmodern minds, that He cannot be known in any real, definite sense; along with this is a warning regarding studying Truth and knowing God for its’ own sake. ‘Knowledge puffs up’ is the gist of the warning here, but the intended solution is very good, being drawn primarily from Psalm 119, that one would respond to God (Himself revealed) in life with godliness – growing that is, in intimacy, friendship or at-oneness, or growing in loving what He loves, and hating what He hates.
