Is God unknowable? I don't think so. I think we can know him, but we can't know all of him.

I have been reading through the Gospel of Mark and I've noticed an apparent asymmetry in Jesus's ministry: sometimes he tells those he heals to tell everybody, sometimes he tells them to keep quiet. I don't know why. I thought about emailing an old professor of mine about it, but I think that maybe knowing God isn't knowing the answers, it's thinking about them (forcing me to think about God). That's how we know him. But again, we can't know it all. Even if I figured this out, there would still be something out there that doesn't jive with what I think I know about God. Then I would be forced to adjust my understanding to line up with who He really is. When you stop adjusting your faith, maybe, is when you stop believing.

At least that's what I think this morning...
