Finite Limitations

“No created intellect can conceive of a single word suitable for God’s most infinite and simple essence. Any word we use to describe God will quickly fall to the ground exhausted–like us, our words fall short of the glory of God. But this does not mean that the use of such words is pointless. We must say that God is holy and sovereign, but we must also exercise due caution. This caution means that we must constantly remind ourlseves that we do not have this holiness in a box; we do not have His sovereignty cupped in our hands. We must say this is the truth about God, but then point beyond the truth to much more” (AIA, pp. 38-39).
