... them has not left himself without a witness in doing goodgiving you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, and filling you with food and your hearts with joy ( Acts 1415-17 NRSV). God makes Himself known in the continuing care and provision for humankind. The universe as a whole serves the Creator's purposes as a vehicle of God's self-manifestation.God also reveals himself in men and women. They are made in the image and likeness of God (Genesis 126-27 ). Humans, as a direct creation of God, are a mirror or reflection of God. People are God's unique workmanship evidenced by their place of dominion over the rest of creation in their capacity to reason, feel, and imagine in their freedom to act and respond and in their sense of right and wrong (Genesis 128 Romans 214-15 ). Especially through this moral sense God reveals Himself in the consciences of men and women. The fact that religious belief and practice is universal confirms the apostle's statements in Romans 21 . Yet, the creatures who worship, pray, build temples, idols and shrines, and seek after God in diverse ways do not glorify God as God nor give Him thanks (Romans 121-23 ). Nevertheless, because each person has been given the capacity for receiving God's general revelation, they are responsible for their actions.God manifests Himself in the workings of history. All of history, rightly understood, bears the imprint of God's activity and thus has a theological character. Primarily, God is revealed in history through the rise and fall of peoples and nations (compare Acts 1722-31 ).God's general revelation is plain, whether in nature, in human conscience, or in history. Even though it is plain, it is often misinterpreted because sinful and finite humans are trying to understand a perfect and infinite God.
