Heidelberg Disputation: Thesis 19 –> That person does not deserve to be called a theologian who looks upon the invisible things of God as though they were clearly perceptible in those things that have actually happened (or have been made, created).
Have you watched this hilarious ode to Pantheism: the double rainbow guy?
At a few points he says, “I don’t know what it means,” a sentiment that betrays the deep desire humans have to interpret God, to read the omens, and to turn religion into superstition. Faith is not trusting God to work in ways that we can easily make sense of. In Gerhard Forde’s words: “Becoming a theologian of the cross involves turning to face the problems, joys, and sorrows of everyday life” (p. 10, OBATOTC). Faith, in this respect, is trusting God when we do not know what He is doing, and in spite of the fact we cannot know what double rainbows mean. It is knowing that He is trustworthy even when we do not trust him.
“If we are faithless, he remains faithful…” (2 Tim 2:13)
