It is inconceivable to think outside of God,or to simply say this simple phrase “outside of God is not.” This phrase is valid as far as grammar and syntax of the English language but as a concept of the mind is really unthinkable. To say “outside of God is not” really implies that “not” as it stands conjures a conceptual reality, that exists outside of God. If this were true, then what would be this conceptual reality? What would it entail? Would it be another god? If this were true how would this new god compare to the already ever living, ever faithful God of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and yes Jesus Christ who is One, the Alpha and Omega? To say that nothing exists outside of God is also unthinkable, for nothing also conjures up a conceptual reality, that becomes something. Nothing that is transformed into something does not exist on its own, it comes from God who is…… in the present, past and the future…and even this final phrase is limited in its attempt at describing all of who or what God is. God is more than our conceptual image of God. However, what we do know of God is sufficient for us to love him, a love that pushes us out of ourselves to embrace another.
just a simple thought!
