Concepts create idols; only wonder grasps anything. - St Gregory of Nyssa

Saturday, June 16, 2012


Then a question begins to creep in. I conceive of God in such-and-such a way. Is He such in reality? But what is being doubted here? My conception, not God. It is like a question for the scientist: is this the objective truth or is it his conception thereof?

Therefore, when doubt arises in us it means that I have outgrown my incomplete conception of God and my imperfect knowledge of Him.

Metropolitan Anthony Bloom, as quoted by Deb on the Run.
