Though written thousands of years ago to a culture very different from our own, Scripture still communicates God’s Word to us today. The power of the Bible to convict us and lead us lies in the fact that it is the Word of the living God. Thank the Lord that He still communicates to us through sacred Scripture.
There is a point of contact between our knowledge and God’s knowledge. Both we and God, for example, know that the statement “two plus two equals four” is a true statement, that it corresponds to reality. However, the Lord understands perfectly how this truth fits into all other truths about the creation. This is possible only for an infinite being. God is infinitely greater than we are, so let us take care not to think of Him as being exactly like us.
