THE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD

THE VARIATION OF GOD IS NOT KNOWN FULLY EXCEPT FOR WHERE MYTHS, RECORDS AND DISTORTED WORDS ARE BROUGHT TO THE PICTURE. MANY WILL ARGUE THAT GOD IS NOT KNOWN AND THAT HE COULD NOT BE FATHOMED AS WELL. TO THIS SCHOOL OF THOUGHT, YOU NEED BE REMINDED THAT WHILE SOME TRUTHS ABOUT GOD EXCEEDS MAN’S ABILITY, THERE ARE STILL SOME TRUTH WHICH NATURAL REASON IS ABLE TO REACH; SUCH AS GOD EXISTING. ONE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER ROUND OF REASON TO UNDERSTAND THIS.

Different schools of thoughts have been kept in place to fully understand the knowledge and existence of God but none have come closer to the abstract truth. Some have propounded that God is dead, others said that God is no more alive and that he used to exist at a certain point in time. Another school of thoughts like the Chinese ideology believe that we are God and thus no need to go beyond the scope of  understanding the nature of God.

However, when properly subjected to critical reasoning, it is glaring and important to note that the knowledge about God can’t be understood in isolation to the nature of God. Such attempt will arrive at nothing but empty echoes. The Bible, if not for anything, but that I so believe in this quote “the wiseness of man is the foolishness of God”. This is a thought for ponder, so we do not even level up to the wiseness of God, how much then do we think we can have a knowledge of God in the first instance? Pathetic is the word to describe such a quest especially where we have decided to ignore nature.

Taking a lesson from nature, we have seen wanton destruction of land, earth-quake, ocean tides in high altitude, sky blues, ever green grasses, amazing mountains, animals still not known to man despite destruction in the past. Now, these symbols portrays God in his mercies, quest, judgement and wisdom but humans are so narrow minded to see all these blissful outcomes that nature has provided freely to understand God. The knowledge of God comes from an intrinsic source; one that is very much imminent to us. The desire to be a worship being doesn’t hold that much but that we attempt to grasp nature fully in our wiseness that is the foolishness of God. For after the creation, God even saw that all he created was good. Imagine the delight on God face and happiness as well only to destroy them in a flood. Now, what have we failed to understand, God destroyed the earth but what was really destroyed? Men perished but men were saved, women perished but women were saved. Light was created but wasn’t destroyed. The sky was created but was destroyed. The ground was created but the flood gave way to land after pouring as much as the vegetation was later watered by the water. Animals were still preserve even in the water and in the ark. God wouldn’t have destroyed his creatures and creations after seeing that it was good.

The moral of this is that the existence of God is imminent to his nature and nature has provided that freely to all and sundry. God is a merciful being with no ill, evils or wickedness. This is hard to understand because we are only grasping the foolishness of God thinking in our wiseness, thus, making it a task to comprehend. To understand God, we must move back to nature, only then, only then.
