How Do We Know God?

Sunday, 24 March 2019

Today, there is much confusion about what it means to know God. Proponents of world religions take issue with the exclusivism of evangelical Christianity, particularly with Jesus’ assertion that he is “the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6). Then there are those Christians, who insist that God speaks to them directly through miraculous signs that go beyond scriptural teachings. This talk focuses specifically on what it means to know God, as he is revealed in the Bible. It will, thus, differentiate the all-important distinction between the fact of divine revelation (the act of God whereby he discloses himself to us through general and special revelation), illumination (the act of the Spirit, whereby he grants spiritual insight and the truthful perception regarding the Bible), and biblical interpretation (the act of God whereby he breathed his word and guided biblical writers to write his word without errors in the original manuscripts).
