Swinburne: knowing God means knowing about him also

Tuesday, April 26, 2011
    Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not take pride in one man over against another.
    —1 Corinthians 4:6 (NIV)
    Preachers never tire of telling us that knowing about God is one thing and knowing God is another; but although these are distinct, it would be very odd if you could know God at all well without knowing quite a lot about him. After all, we know an ordinary friend better when we know something about that person’s history and character.
    ... Richard G. Swinburne (b. 1934), Philosophers Who Believe, Kelly James Clark, Illinois: Inter-Varsity Press, 1993, p. 200 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have revealed Yourself to Your people.
