Trinitarianism #2 – The Knowability of God

Can the finite comprehend the infinite? Can limited humans understand the unlimited God? Should we even attempt to study Him considering our limitations? There are many objections to the study of God. Many say that God cannot be known since He is infinite and we are finite. How can someone who is limited understand the unlimited God? Is this an endeavor in which the Christian should even attempt to embark? During this session, the student will learn the various objections given for the study of God. They will come to an understanding that while there are many things about God we cannot begin to understand or fathom, God can nevertheless be known. In other words, the student will learn that while we cannot come to know God fully, we can come to know Him truly.
