When you look at the religious landscape—even among many groups that claim to be Christian—you’ll find any number of fantastic claims regarding personal knowledge of God. St. Cyril of Jerusalem reminds us that what we best know about God is how little we really know:

...of God we speak not all we ought (for that is known to Him only), but so much as the capacity of human nature has received, and so much as our weakness can bear. For we explain not what God is but candidly confess that we have not exact knowledge concerning Him. For in what concerns God to confess our ignorance is the best knowledge.

"Before I joined the Point Loma Nazarene School, I had been searching for an Orthodox college that offers a masters program, particularly in business and law. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one. So, i joined the PLNU and was able to meet a number of Chrisitans from all kinds of denominations. The best part was that when I met my classmate, who happens to be an Orthodox Christian, he told me about Ancient Faith Radio, Project Mexico, and other organizations that are related to the Orthodox faith. AFR has been a blessing to me and my father. We were listening to the Eternal Word Television Network, a Catholic station, but now my father and I spend more time listening to Ancient Faith Radio. The podcasts and the music have also been a blessing to my Ethiopian Orthodox friends and relatives! Thank you for helping bring us closer to the almighty God through Orthodox Christian teachings. May the good Lord bless you!"
