Thought for the day

"There is much controversy about who God is, but most, if not all controversy comes from an ignoble (low) view of God. As you get closer to God the vastness of the great chasm between God and man becomes even greater still. As truth is unveiled and your knowledge of God increases, you see more and more the great disparity between the finite (us) and the infinite (God).

I once questioned the thinking of the many saints of old who speak about this indescribable greatness of God. The truth is: The vastness of God is not apprehended by your intellect, nor is it understood by much study, nor is it brought into subjection by worship. Grand thinking, study and worship are good, but they alone do not and cannot reveal infinite God. The deliberate creation of countless religions prove it beyond any doubt. God can only be recognized and understood by faith. Simple faith."
