God is still speaking

The idea that God stopped speaking at the close of the canon is a modern notion dreamed up by the Protestant Reformers some 500 years ago. But the Catholic and Orthodox traditions, otherwise known as the majority of Christians worldwide, have always left room for more revelation. Even Pentecostal Protestants have continued to believe that God could give us new truth or a fresh word.

God is still speaking. God’s revelation is not complete. God’s Kingdom is not fully realized. But as human history progresses, as the Universe continues to expand, so too does human consciousness, led by the Spirit of God.
