knowing is love and love Is

what do you mean by “know’?

what we mean by know is… the deeper kinds of truth… more like “knowing” a person- something which takes a long time, a lot of trust, and a good deal of trial and error- and less like knowing about the right bus to take into town. It’s a kind of knowing in which the subject and the object are intertwined, so that you could never say that it was either purely subjective or purely objective.

one good word for this deeper and richer kind of knowing, the kind that goes with the deeper and richer kind of truth, is “love”. but before we can get to that we must take a deep breath and plunge into the center of the story… we must begin to talk about God. which is like saying we must learn to stare at the sun. -nt wright
