Musings on….Romans 1 ~ Can we know God w/out Bible?





Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. 19 For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. 20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. 21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools, 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

So, Can this mean we can know God without the bible? This passage to me is specific in talking about a certain type of person behaving a certain way….

Is there any other passages that state we can know God without the help of the bible? or any other writing?

Maybe we can know there is a God, but what about Jesus and his life on earth?

Am I staking too much on a book?

I can know the presence of God in my life, but how can I articulate it to others?

How can I tell/remember to tell others in the future about what went on in my life without a book or words written down?

Didn’t the writers of the bible just write down what they experienced? But the amazing thing is they experienced God and Jesus?

Help, Kristina
