    Re: The problem of divine hiddenness

    Since man has had these limitations since creation, if God didn't create humans this way, how did they acquire them?

    Since humans have had these limitations since they were created, it seems to fallow they were created that way.

    Because we have had them since Adam and Eve.

    There are no Christians teachings that state mans ability to process information, nor our senses have been altered by any source other than God.

    God made man. Man's abilities, cognitive and perceptual, are limited.

    What Christian teaching does not support this?
