Infinite Wisdom

The Infinite Wisdom of God

THE GREAT I AM IS UNEXPLAINABLE
—“In regard to the personality and prerogatives of God,
where He is, and what He is, this is a subject which
we are not to dare to touch. On this theme silence
is eloquence. It is those who have no experimental
knowledge of God who venture to speculate in re-
gard to Him. Did they know more of Him, they
would have less to say about what He is. The one
who in the daily life holds closest communion with
God, and who has the deepest knowledge of Him,
realizes most keenly the utter inability of human
beings to explain the Creator . .

“God always has been. He is the great I AM.
The psalmist declares, ‘Before the mountains were
brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth
and the world, even from everlasting to everlast-
ing, Thou art God.’ He is the high and lofty One
that inhabiteth eternity. ‘I am the Lord, I change
not,’ He declares. With Him there is no variable-
ness, neither shadow of turning. He is ‘the same
yesterday, and today, and forever.’ He is infinite and
omnipresent. No words of ours can describe His
greatness and majesty.”—Medical Ministry, 92.

HUMANS CANNOT EXPLAIN DIVINE WISDOM
-“Those are blessed with clearest light who
are willing thus to accept the living oracles upon
the authority of God. If asked to explain certain
statements, they can only answer: ‘It is so presented
in the Scriptures.’ They are obliged to acknowledge
that they cannot explain the operation of divine
power or the manifestation of divine wisdom. It is
as the Lord intended it should be, that we find our-
selves compelled to accept some things solely by
faith. To acknowledge this, is only to admit that
the finite mind is inadequate to grasp the infinite;
that man, with his limited, human knowledge, can-
not understand the purposes of Omniscience.”—5
Testimonies, 700-701.

My bad language was uncalled-for.

Au contraire on the subject of infinity and omniprescence - which exist soley in contrast with their opposites, necessary to frame the omnipresent dialectic which only exists as the vehicle pointing to nirvana.

Call god my buddha-nature but ditch the personification: it confuses those who seek freedom, "god's" person is almost the last obstacle on humanity's journey to it's total buddhahood.

God has no personhood, snap out of it, Z.

I'm so ashamed.

Bad language? You mean when you called me a humanist? You are forgiven, but you should know better.

Other than that, I have no idea what you mean.

Interesting. Both horns of the same dilemma with bull as common ground. Is this what history is coming to? I won't be fighting a corner too much, as the result is not even a ripple out of sight in the expanse of being and time. You should know that.

I might know that, but I won't attempt to unravel the long and twisted road of that comment without a map with pictures.

Word verification: decor

which should've been sufficient response, but I'm a glutton for punishment.

I gather by your folderol you didn't read the entire article, it's all there.

Metaphor and rationale allow for only so much, and instinctive abstractions can be profound knowledge as well as delusions.

Buddha-nature, Buddha-mind, Christ- consciousness: Are these manifestations of God personified?

Why did even Jesus emphasize the Trinity, and assiduously correct those who referred to him as God?

The day will come when,
after harnessing the winds,
the tides and gravitation,
we shall harness for God the energies of Love.
And on that day,
for the second time in the history of the world,
man will have discovered fire.

I may have lost the plot.

Oh God - not the plot!!

The plot always thickens,
lost or not.

I was gonna say something about faith, but I've just read your comments & don't think I'll be able to entertain a 'serious' thought til tomorrow...
I'll probably wake up depressed.
