At Adoration we are striving to learn and grow in our understanding of God and His ways!
Gerhardus Vos, a biblical scholar from a century ago, helpfully explains why we are interested in learning more about God:
“So long as the intellect retained its legitimate place among the functions of the religious subject, so long as to know God was felt to be an essential part of glorifying God, the natural tendency was to make this knowledge as comprehensive and as many-sided as possible – to have it mirror the full content of the divine nature, and not merely a single one of its perfections [ie. love].”
“... the music of [a well balanced theology] may not always please modern ears, because it seems lacking in sweetness; but it ranged over a wider scale and made better harmonies than the popular strains today.”
- Gerhardus Vos, Redemptive History and Biblical Interpretation, p. 425
