We can know God but we cannot prove God exists. However, we can remove any negating assertion in a similar statement. I know, Christianity is not impotent and it can be proven theologically in the realm of intellect, existentially in the lives of martyrs, exemplary souls, and practically in the world. The hope pieces of scripture express the hope of God for humanity. God’s hope is not vain. The eternal triad of faith, hope, and love, bring the presence of God into the world and actively work toward a redemptive reality both now and yet to come.
