“The super-essential nature of God is not a subject for speech or thought or even contemplation, for it is far removed from all that exists....”

This statement is rooted in the hyper Paganism of the time of Constantine. Please accept the loving kindness and the deeply personal caring that God has for each of us! He is not an abstract being that cannot be comprehended. He is a real Person! We were created in His IMAGE! We wants us to love Him in a very real and personal manner. Just like a son or daughter should love the earthly and mortal parents, we are privileged to love our Creator.

John 14:7 “If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.”

John 17:8 “For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.”

Who taught you this nonsense? What is this based on? Read Homilies LXXIII & LXXXI on the Gospel according to John by +John Chrysostomos.

As for the quote I posted, it’s from the 14th century, not the 4th.
