Christianity means not knowing all the answers
Writing for Red Letter Christians, EEWC member Kathy Vestal says, “It seems to me it’s unchristian to claim, or even aim, to know all the answers about God.” She drives home the point that there is no way we could possibly know all there is about God because we are finite and God is infinite, and that furthermore, we are “twisting our religion” if we think it’s about knowledge in the first place. “Could it be,” Kathy asks, “that perhaps our spiritual response is not meant to be that we know everything about God, since by design, we cannot? Perhaps if we can see our place in creation, our spiritual reaction is more one of awe and worship, amazement and wonder.”
