"The knowledge of God consists in the perception of his incomprehensibility.""Although [God] reveals himself in his names, no name is adequate to the purpose. He is nameless; his name is a name of wonder (Gen. 32:29; Judges 13:18, Prov. 30:4).""Not only is God free from all the imperfections present in finite, changeable, and dependent creatures, but also far exceeds their perfections. He is better than virtue, knowledge, and beauty; purer than oneness, more blessed than bliss itself.""Neither in creation nor in re-creation does God reveal himself exhaustively."Quoting Hilary: "The perfection of learning is to know God in such a way that, though you realize he is not unknowable, yet you know him as indescribable.""Belief in a personal God is both natural and normal; it arises in human consciousness spontaneously and universally. Unbelief requires enormous effort. There is no proof available to it.""However, when this natural theology stands on its own and in a self-sufficient and rationalistic fashion sets aside the need for special revelation, it is an invalid and impious activity.""People tend rather to adopt the crudest superstition than to stick in the long run with cold and naked unbelief."
