The Nature of the Maker and Nature

“If we perceive the spiritual principles of visible things we learn that the world has a Maker.

But we do not ask what is the nature of that Maker, because we recognize that this is beyond our scope.

Visible creation clearly enables us to grasp that there is a Maker, but it does not enable us to grasp His nature.”

(St. Maximos the Confessor, THE PHILOKALIA, Kindle Loc. 17646-50)
