Why We Need the Revelation of Scripture

February 4, 2010

Why our knowledge of God is bankrupt apart from the authority of Scripture:

If God’s relation to the physical universe is capable of being understood scientifically, then God would be part of the physical universe.  But, according to Scripture, God is not a part of the physical universe, an individual who can be understood as an immense source of physical power.  Rather, God is the Creator of the entire physical universe.  He is not a part of it, but the author of it.  In the language of theology, God transcends the universe.

-Paul Helm, The Providence of God (IVP)
