Vision of God

      No Comments on Vision of God

Theoria is wisdom’s vision of glory in the Name, not our unaided visual perception of God but God’s deifying vision of God in Holy Trinity.  Vision of God is uncreated grace, gift of uncreated light, not objectifying, visual perception of something empirically perceptible, but wisdom’s awareness of imperceptible glory, awakened in the Name. This is why Scripture says we cannot see… Read more »
