Can we grasp God at all in concepts? Is it possible to speak about him meaningfully?


Can we grasp God at all in concepts? Is it possible to speak about him meaningfully?

Although we men are limited and the infinite greatness of God never fits into finite human concepts, we can nevertheless speak rightly about God.

In order to express something about God, we use imperfect images and limited notions. And so everything we say about God is subject to the reservation that our language is not equal to God’s greatness. Therefore we must constantly purify and improve our speech about God.
