Revelation

Revelation requires both the willingness of God to reveal and the openness of humankind to be revealed to. This possibly explains that whilst the nature of God is unchanging, our understanding of the nature of God may change over time as our hearing and reflection on that Word becomes more nuanced. This becomes problematic when one ties theology to an unchanging document in changing times and the context of a concretely derived document such as Scripture is ignored and may even become a false idol itself.
