Knowing

God can never be and ought never to be reduced to a mere object for consideration, for in faith God is experienced as the ultimate subject.  God is not a theoretical problem to somehow resolve but rather a mystery to be participated in.  This perspective is evidenced in the Bible itself when we note that the term ‘knowing’ in the Hebrew tradition (in contrast to the Greek tradition) is about engaging in an intimate encounter rather than describing some objective fact: religious truth is thus that which transforms reality rather than that which describes it.
