Lightner: the breakdown of communication

Sunday, March 24, 2019
    Feast of Oscar Romero, Archbishop of San Salvador, Martyr, 1980
    Commemoration of Paul Couturier, Priest, Ecumenist, 1953
    Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
    —1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV)
    Arguments for the existence of God are very restricted; some of them are more restricted and limited than others. They do not prove beyond all question the existence of the God of the Bible. Furthermore, it must be remembered that man’s mind, his thinking process, has been affected by his fall into sin. This means that there are definite limitations to God’s revelation in nature. The problem is not in the revelation but in the receiver of the revelation.
    ... Robert P. Lightner (1931-2018), The God of the Bible [1973], Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Book House, 1978, formerly published as The First Fundamental: God, p. 21 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 13:12; Ps. 8:3-4; 19:1-4; John 10:14-15; Rom. 8:18; 2 Cor. 5:7; Jas. 1:23-24; 1 John 3:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, heal my blindness.
