791. 'Words of God' Do Not Exist. Thus, We Cannot Know God, But Can Understand God's Acts.
If George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was living today, he would agree with my thoughts above. However, instead of defining God as the origin of things, Hegel develops a thing-in-itself. He says that a thing-in-itself is like that Absolute of which we know only that in it all things are one. Essentially, Hegel is speaking of things-in-themselves, which are 'wholes and their parts.' But, things-in-themselves are rejected in Russia by Vladimir Lenin (click) because he says that divine ideas are not unfolded by God.
If God does unfold new divine ideas, I conclude that God created a universe that has a beginning and an end. But, I conclude God and the universe are one, because both are things-in-themselves and are never terminated because all humans can develop self-consciousness. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit is useful reading (click)
Self-consciousness does not come from the 'words of God.' This means that religious scriptures are imperfect and must be updated continually. The scriptures of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam must update their teachings on consciousness .
