Three Ways of Reacting to Revelation

<quote>

Trip 4: The Beast

God reveals the natural and material realm. We can respond to His revelation one of three ways.

The First Way: We could reject the revelation and fail to acknowledge God. Then we wouldn’t have true premises, but we would equate God’s revelation with what comes out of our imaginations. We wouldn’t know the difference between our worldviews and what God reveals. We couldn’t rationally conclude anything. We could have strong opinions. We could argue for those opinions, but we would argue irrationally. We could even disrespect God’s order for nature since we would have rejected His revelation about it. We would do things worthy of death if we were to take this course. (Romans 1)

 The Second Way: We could receive the revelation and fail to acknowledge God. Then we would have true premises, but we wouldn’t know if our premises were true. We would still equate God’s revelation with what comes out of our imaginations. We couldn’t tell the difference between our imaginations and God’s revelation. Not knowing the difference, none of our conclusions would be rational. We could, however, irrationally hold strong opinions and argue for our views fervently.

The Third Way: We could receive the revelation and acknowledge God. Then we would have true premises, and we could rationally come to conclusions if we didn’t add to God’s words or dismiss His words.

 God also reveals the spiritual realm. We have the same three choices for this revelation. We can reject the revelation and fail to acknowledge God. We can accept the revelation and fail to acknowledge God. We can accept the revelation and acknowledge God.
