“Perhaps it has been a mistake to think that God reveals himself”

Truly, you are a God who hides yourself, O God of Israel, the Savior” (Isa. 45:15).

“A religion which does not affirm that God is hidden is not true. Vere tu es Deus absconditus–truly you are a hidden God” (Pascal).

Perhaps it has been a mistake to think that God reveals himself. He speaks, yes. But as he speaks, he hides. His face he does not show us.
