Confessional Expression of Our faith
Can finite man know the infinite creator? Immanuel Kant said, "No! Man can only know the natural world in which he lives; if there is any supernatural, he can't know anything about it." The Humanist Manifesto II says,
The Apostle John described life in John 17:3, "Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." Life is knowing the only true God. Nothing is more practical nor important than knowing Him. God designed man with a built-in desire to know his creator. God cannot be discovered; He must be revealed. We could never know God unless He took the initiative to tell us about Himself. The scripture records His revelation of Himself to us. We can never comprehend all that God is, but we can know Him as He has revealed Himself in scripture. He has not told us everything about Himself, but He has revealed all that is necessary to life and salvation in the sixty-six books of Holy Scripture which are the written word of God. The Bible is fully inspired, infallible, inerrant, and solely authoritative. God’s Word is truth.
