Katotohanan at Pag-ibig

Sa Isip Ko’y Yakap Ka Pa
Inawit ni Agot Isidro

Alam kong mayroon nang iba
Sa kilos mo’y nadarama
Mukhang ako ay kinalimutan mo na
Wala nang masasabi `di ba

Ang kapit mo’y kay lamig na
Pati halik mo’y wala nang gana
Maagaw ka man ng iba sa akin
Pag-ibig ko’y patuloy pa rin

Koro:
Sa isip ko’y yakap ka pa
Sa isip ko’y walang iba
Mananatiling ikaw ang kapiling
Kahit sa isip ko na lamang

Alam kong mayroon nang iba
Ang init ay nanlamig na
Ba’t di aminin nang di malilihis
Ikaw at ako’y tapos na

Bawa’t hakbang palayo ka
Walang linaw na babalik ka
Maagaw ka man ng iba sa akin
Pag-ibig ko’y patuloy pa rin

Sa isip ko’y yakap ka pa
Sa isip ko’y walang iba
Mananatiling ikaw ang kapiling
kahit sa isip ko na lamang

Mananatiling ikaw ang kapiling
Kahit sa isip ko na lamang

Some questions that surfaced in our philosophy of religion class.

1. How can an absolute God still relate himself to us? How can one still seek him if he is by fact and by right the wholly unattainable?

2. Why doesn't he just show himself to us? Why does he hide from us especially in those times where we need Him?

3. How can I think God without falling into idolatry, where I reduce him to an anthropomorphic image with human traits, which necessarily comes from and ends with me? If I were to take God as that which escapes conceptualization and thought, how can I then think of Him?

4. Is everything I understand about God or know about him in the end "subjective" in the sense that it is still human, and precisely, not divine?

5. Against Anselm, do I really have to believe first in order to understand? Is faith a requirement in order to reach any knowledge about Him or the divine? Would that be not like, to use a simplistic metaphor, putting the carriage before the horse? O…
