Time for a Great Quote: Tozer on God’s Nearness

18 Jun

We theologians sometimes discuss the two attributes Screen Shot 2016-06-11 at 7.36.49 PMof God’s transcendence (His other-ness, His distance from us) and His immanence (His nearness, His immediate presence in the universe).   If we think too much on God’s transcendence, He becomes wholly Other in an unknowable sense.  If we focus too much on His immanence, we might treat Him with less reverence than He deserves.

None of us have achieved a perfect understanding of God’s transcendence and His immanence. Where would you put yourself on the following continuum and what biblical passages help you in this area of growing in your knowledge of Him?
