Natural theology pursues that which can be known about God through natural human capacity. Unlike revealed theology—God’s self-revelation in divinely-inspired Scripture—natural theology explores what God has revealed in the natural world.
Revealed theology is the most perfect, infallible, and supreme way of acquiring knowledge about God, but as Thomas Reid wisely stated, it “was not intended to supersede, but to aid the use of our natural faculties.” The noetic effects of sin have left mankind unable to gain knowledge of God as Lord and Savior. “God, however,” correctly noted John of Damascus, “did not leave us in absolute ignorance. For the knowledge of God’s existence has been implanted by him in all by nature.”
The aim of this group is to share, encourage, discuss and build each other as we explore the nature of God as reveal in God's creation. We seek to treasure and honor God through our discussions.
