And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image
from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit. - 2 Corinthians 3:18

God Is Not an Object

We often talk about God as if He is an object to be contemplated
ed or prayed to and that he
resides in a faraway place we call Heaven. But, God is a subject and not an object. That is,
God is not an object like a stone or a tree, but is a subject like you or I who is capable of
experience and indeed capable of the kind of inter-subjective experience that we have with others which we calll
relationships. The reason that it is wrong to stare at others or to “use” them is because they are subjects, not objects.
But, God is a special sort of subject in that He is everywhere (omnipresent) and yet not concrete and tangible in the
way that human subjects are. Therefore, we cannot know God in the direct way that we know our fellow human
beings. How people know God is different for everyone. Some know Him through His creation while others know Him
through prayer and meditation. Still others may know Him through their work with the poor and unfortunate, while
others will see Him in His representatives in their churches, synagogues and mosques. However you see and know
God, be aware that He loves you and cares for you and wants you to be happy. - Christopher Simon
