Einstein wrote, “The object of all science, whether natural science or psychology, is to coordinate our experiences and to bring them into a logical system.” And I believe it is equally valid to remark that the object of all philosophy, whether rooted in religion or ethics, is to coordinate our meaning and purpose and bring them into a logical system. Such a system, in the case of religion, is referred to as theology.
God is mysterious from the human perspective—however, with an appropriate understanding, a systematic theology, the mystery of God is significantly reduced.
Sunlight / Sonlight
Sunlight enables physical vision which assists us in understanding our surroundings through the creation of a logical system of theories and beliefs about our physical environment.
Sonlight enables spiritual vision which assists us in understanding our existence through doctrines and beliefs about our spiritual environment.
