Two quotes, both from Fr. Stephen Freeman’s blog, “Glory to God for All Things.” Both of these are taken from the post, “To Know What You Cannot Know.” The first is Freeman quoting Fr. Thomas Hopko:
You cannot know God — but you have to know Him to know that.
The second is Fr Stephen himself:
The largest group within my conversations are those who feel very secure in their knowledge of God but who believe a lot of strange things that they cannot possibly know. I feel a calling to help people know a lot less so they can know anything at all.
