Revealed Mystery

In How (Not) to Speak of God, Peter Rollins says:

“…our questioning of God is never really a questioning of God but only a means of questioning our understanding of God.”

This is an idea he spends much time on throughout the entire book. God has revealed himself to us, but he is still beyond our comprehension…he is still a mystery. His ways and thoughts are above and beyond ours.

Is our struggle then with God, or our understanding of who God is?

How have you experienced God as personal and intimate…and yet still mysterious and other?
