This entry is part 1 of 8 in the series Knowing God: Discover the Truth

If you only had a short time to tell someone about God, what would you tell them? What is the most important thing to know about God? In a way, we may think we don’t know much about God—that God is some great mystical being of whom we only have the faintest idea.

But if we think very long about this, we are liable to find that some of the things we know about God are contradictory. This suggests that we may have taken a wrong turn somewhere and that leads to an important principle found in Deuteronomy:

The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

Deuteronomy 29:29 KJ2000

So there are things we can know about God and things that are unknowable for us. The curious thing about man is that we become quite sure of things about God that we really can’t know, while we are doubtful about the things we can know. So instead of busying ourselves with the secret things, creating dogma around those ideas, and using them to decide who is a Christian and who is not, let’s embrace a little humility and try to better know God.
