Quote of the Weekend

“The irony is that a certain modern approaches that portend to exult God’s perfections end up domesticating his transcendence.”

“He came to know God in the darkness, so that what he discovered was God shrouded in mystery.”

– Charles J. Rennie ‘Analogy and the Doctrine of Divine Impassibility’ from Confessing the Impassible God.

I love the sharpness of truth in the first quote. The second one struck me because often people claim to find God, but never talk about the creator/ creature difference.
