You state what I was thinking; i.e. Gnostic nonsense. False stories and doctrines began almost immediately both during and after Christ’s death. The Bible tells us that; i.e. calling Jesus a winebibber(SP?) etc.

“That the Word of God is not true due to an apparent failure of all powerful God but is somehow intelligibly OBJECYIVELY contained in all of Creation; a sign of His Power.”

No, I’m saying that the Word of God is true and is represented symbolically by everything we perceive to be the Universe. From the specs of dust circling the furthest galaxy all the way to each of us humans.

Each being that is conscious within our Universe has a limited perspective of the entire picture and can only learn/perceive so much in a lifetime. We each have a separated, timed and biased view of something that is actually singular, timeless and perfectly balanced.

We are limited by God’s imposition of time, space, energy and entropy within this Universe. Over time through language and writing, humans were able to condense knowledge gathered over many lifetimes.

The Bible is a fine example of this but it is still man’s imperfect, biased perception of the true Word of God: The Universe itself. God gave us imperfections and individual biases for a higher purpose than we may ever comprehend. The Bible itself is ultimately a human work and still subject to human imperfection.

We are still not done learning, far from it. With all the scientific breakthroughs coming together, we will hear from Him soon.
