Yeah that might work as long as we emphasis that words do have in some ways different meanings when applied to us than they do to God. Like "good" God is not good in the same way that we are.Family resemblance?
Thats true. I would add that he also didn't seem to be as distanced from an Enlightment/Modernist understanding of things.And I would say that much of this is due to his misunderstanding of Van Til on this point.
What is the saying, close is no cigar? Yes but these implications are beyond our comprehension. One to one means exact understanding, like simplicity. One to one means exact understanding of what it means. How can we exactly understand what this means.I would certainly say that it's close. Consider Divine simplicity: a doctrine which is simple yet mind-blowing in its implications. God has no parts. Similarly with the otherness of God.
What do we know about God apart from revealation? And my spelling is horrible, I am trying to do better so bare with me.Condescension is probably the better word, in terms of revelation.
