"in vain do they worship me" - Finite Human Beings and Infinite God

Tokyo subway

Finite Human Beings and Infinite God

Is God infinite?

As the definition of God is almighty, God can have all the features that can be imagined or thought in the human mind.   As the infinitude can be imagined by the human mind, God must be able to meet this condition.

In other word, if God is not infinite, whoever is infinite surpass ability of God.  But nobody can surpass God who is almighty, since there cannot be anybody who is more than almighty.

But what should be the relationship between the finite human beings and infinite God?  From the beginning, how can the human beings see God?  In other word, how can the finite human beings understand infinite God?  The human beings should be puzzled if they think of God and would tell anything groundless about God.

So, the human beings can understand God only to the extent where God allows the human beings to understand Him.  The words of Christ Jesus should be reviewed from this standpoint without establishing dubious theology such as the Holy Trinity.

Mar 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
Mar 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.
