God and Rationality

In this world which has come to be through God's creative Word, ecumenical activity occurs within time and space which are both brought about as functions of conditional events and holders of the immanent order to the world. God placed man in this world, and He had made Himself known throughout this time and space. In this world, man was granted with certain skills so that he may be able to utilize the world, enjoy it, and have a certain degree of control over it and its other elements so that praise and worship may be brought to God. This is also the same world wherein God had sent His Son to express the Father's love and so that man may be able to be in communion with God. As such, not only did God create the world, He had also been able to establish the world's relation to Himself. In this world, we see that the Church and the science community coexist and are both in quest of understanding the various structures of space and time while attempting to understand the different forms of human speech and thought.
