Why We Can’t Be “Know it Alls”

By Rev. Dr. J. Patrick Bowman

There are some things that will always be out of the reach of human understanding. Knowing where the lost socks ended up. Who ate the last of the ice cream from the freezer? Where are the Sasquatch hiding when they aren’t being seen? Is the Bermuda Triangle an ancient portal? And the most important question of all…Who killed J. R. ? (dating myself now, lol)

But honestly, there are many questions human beings would like to know the answers to. Yet, if we knew everything about everything, where would the mystery be? What would peak our imaginations? Could it be somethings are kept from us to keep us humble? Or maybe to protect us?

Moses wanted to see God but was only shown his backside. Isaiah saw God in the Temple, high and lifted up, and felt the awesomeness of His majesty and the utter sinfulness of man. In both of these instances, God governed His self-revelation.

Please join me Tuesday (2/22) for the next Pursuing Holiness Wholeheartedly Podcast. We will be exploring The Unique, Unapproachable, Incomprehensible, Unattainable Holiness of God with A.W. Tozer and Sinclair Ferguson.
