Had God not revealed Himself


To reveal means to make the unknown known, that is to say, to make something known that the knower couldn’t have known by their own power.

With our reason, we can arrive at the notion that God is one, for instance. But then there are more particular thing that we wouldn’t know had it not been for His revelation, such as the fact that God is Trinity, or that God loves us.

What other things are there about God Himself that required God’s revelation for us knowing them?


No. As far as I know no one has ever showed that He could create something from nothing.


We needed the Incarnation. Because then we could know by example the perfect way to live our humanity.


God has made covenants with mankind and humans have obligations to fulfill our part of the covenant. Then, there are the things to obey, themselves.
