The Known and the Knower

(Continuing from yesterday)    So God made the universe, He made man to live in that universe, and He gives us the Bible, the verbalized, propositional, factual revelation, to tell us what we need to know.  In the bible He not only tells us about morals, which makes possible real morals instead of merely sociological averages, but He gives us comprehension and conscious ability to correlate our knowledge.  The same reasonable God made both things, — namely the things that can be known and how we can know them, the subject and the object – and he put them together.  So it is not surprising if there is a correlation between these things.   

If modern science could be born on the basis of there being a reasonable God, which makes it possible to find out the order of the universe by reason, should we be taken by surprise that the knower who is to know and the object which is to be known should have a correlation?  It is exactly what we should expect.  Because we have a reasonable God who made them in the first place, there is a reasonable correlation between the subject and the object.
