Why Revelations Can Be Confusing (and Even Get Misinterpreted)

What a fascinating insight into how God speaks with His children through revelation. 

It is not humanly possible to fully understand God’s mind and will, or even His communications, Michael Ash asserted in his address Aug. 3 at the FairMormon Conference.

“We are trapped in black-and-white TVs, even though color signals go racing above our heads,” said Ash, author of Shaken Faith Syndrome and other works in defense of the Mormon faith. FairMormon is an organization dedicated to that purpose, though it is not affiliated with the Church.

Ash’s black-and-white TV metaphor was by way of explaining that God’s divine thoughts are so far above those of mortal men and women that He modifies His communication to fit the mortal capacity for understanding.
