Book Quotes: Can We Understand God?

From In God We Trust by Steve Ham (page 78):

So I accept that Scripture teaches that we have one God and I also accept that Scripture teaches that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one. We cannot understand that. How can we? We are limited in power, presence, and knowledge. We have limited capacity to accept anything outside the realm in which we live. But that is exactly the point. If we could understand God, would He be any different to us? Would He be God?

....It is how I answer the question for people asking me about the Trinity. If we were to examine what the Bible teaches about God, we would find much more about God that we couldn't truly fathom or understand. It is at this point that we know that there is much that can be confirmed in God's Word that He has graciously allowed us to understand, and that gives us a great confidence in having faith in God for the things we can't understand. God has unique attributes that make Him the Creator and us the creation.
