There is very little in the way of direct revelation of a world that exists alongside our world. We get little glimpses from time to time in the testimony of men who, in vision, were privileged to see a little of it. But we know next to nothing about the properties of that world—about the laws that govern its working. We know the names and jobs of some players, and that is about it.

What I am saying is that we are, by any definition of the term, ignorant. And since admitting we are ignorant makes us very uncomfortable, we try to create truth for ourselves. But since my truth differs from your truth, we are left with relative truth, which is merely ignorance by another name.

I’ll try one more simple idea: Any explanation of God offered by man can only diminish God—make him smaller. Any attempt to make God relevant to our world will create a God made in our image—which is no God at all. After all, the making is the other way around. Does this mean we can’t understand God?
