Can we know God through created things?

Mission Lab

Yes, among other ways, God makes Himself known to us through the things that He has made.

Sacred Scripture teaches us that man can come to know God through created things.

The Church also teaches that, from the natural light of human reason, man can come to know God as the beginning and end of all that is, and that created things around us help us to see that the one who made them is God. If we really love God, we will try to learn as much as we can about Him, including learning about Him from the things He has made.
