How to Know the God
The God is almighty and omnipotent.
He must record every phenomenon on the earth. He must know, for example, every number of any item. He must know the number of hairs of every person on the earth. He must know the number of leaves of every plant on this earth. He must know the total number of rocks, stones, and grains of sand.
He must also know every movement of each hair of every person with a time stamp. He must record every movement of every creature. He must record it at every angle. He must have a complete record of every person along with a flow of time.
So, He must have a complete record of the earth since its creation.
But for what? For the final judgment?
However, one thing sure is that we can imagine such ability of the God. And, while we can imagine such ability of the God, if the God cannot do it, He cannot be almighty and omnipotent.
And, other important issue is how the God lives?
The life of the God must be very different from living of a human being who is born and die. What does it mean for the God to live? He must not be born and die in a human sense. It is beyond our imagination.
Of course you can deny existence of the God. But it does not lead you anywhere. Civilization of mankind grew with people thinking about the God to play leading roles. By thinking about the God, mankind got wiser and accumulated knowledge.
Nonetheless, extreme pursuit of the God might result in too much awe in the God or confusion and fatigue in brain work.
Accordingly, it is safer to think about the God based on the holy books or some authentic documents such as the Bible if you cannot rely on a long tradition of your religion, including Judaism.
In the modern world some scholars studied the God. But they seem to have been thinking at a lower level than that observed 2000 years ago. As time went by, people came to use more phrases and logic but the level at which they researched the God looked like getting lower. At the lower level, they think using merely more words but without more correct understanding.
Maybe for Christianity, early followers of Christ had the highest level of understanding of the God. As time went by, words Christians used to describe the God increased and got enriched but their level got lower.
So, top scholars of a religion always refer to original words the founder of the religion used while he was teaching original followers.
And as the God is almighty and omnipotent, every answer for any question about Him must be found in the holy book or the Bible.
In this context, the Gospels must be the most important source for knowledge of the God and Christ Jesus.
