The Debate Over Human's Reception Of The Revalation Of God

854 words - 4 pages

There is considerable debate about the extent to which Humankind has received the Revelation of God. The term revelation deals with how God has revealed himself to humanity or in other words, how he made himself known to that which he has created. Theologians generally distinguish God’s revelation in two ways General, and Special revelation. Many theologians agree that something can be learned from the study of human nature. However, most evident is the moral and spiritual qualities found within humankind that reflect the character of God. One could argue the point that the nature of revelation depends on whether revelation is given or understood through experience, proposition, culture, scripture or all four. Numerous studies show that revelation has been received by humankind through scripture. The influence of scripture has allowed humankind to find out not only about God, but themselves as well. Therefore many people believe that scripture is the one and true way that God have made himself known. Research indicates that through scripture God has inspired, communicate, and revealed himself to humankind through the elements of the world. Through these studies humankind has come to believe and understand that there is a greater source that can give and take away that which he has created.

Being limited in our ability to think as God does, one must believe and trust through the faith which has be built through the very word that has been written. With that being said, the writer Timothy share with his readers that all scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness (Timothy 3:16 NRSV). The bulk of the evidence found in scripture leads humankind to a greater revelation about God. Regardless of the arguments formed by theologians, if humankind is to receive God it must be done through faith.
Doctrine tempers and in some sense control the possibility of revelation. As we take a deeper look into revelation there are two types: Special and General Revelation. General revelation is that which comes as a result of special revelation. In other words without the special revelation we never come to the general revelation. When God discloses God self to us it enables us to see God in a broader sense. So as we also speak about doctrine which is a set of teachings, we see that these teachings come from ones belief system.
