Our God Is So Much Greater Than We Even Realize: Gary Wilkerson and Matthew Barrett

Our tendency can be to describe God in ways that are more like ourselves, as if he is just a bigger, better version of us. The God of the Bible is altogether different than us. He is eternal, infinite, timeless, perfect, unchanging and self-existent. Matthew Barrett joins Gary Wilkerson to discuss how the incomprehensibility of God helps maintain the distinction between Creator and creature.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • Our tendency can be to domesticate God and describe him in ways that are more like a bigger, better version of ourselves when God is actually altogether different from us.
  • God is eternal, infinite, timeless, perfect, unchanging, and self-existent.
  • We must be careful to avoid extremes of thinking that say either God is completely unknowable or completely knowable.
  • God is incomprehensible, yet knowable. Our finite minds cannot comprehend all of God, but in his compassion, God chooses to reveal himself to us in ways we can understand.
