The confusion that has arisen on the subject of divine revelation is the result in great measure of a dualistic separation of the sacred and the secular issuing in a sharp distinction between natural and revealed religion. In primitive states of culture and in ancient society no such differentiation is or was contemplated. As Marett has said, “the savage has no word for ‘nature’. He does not abstractly distinguish between an order of uniform happenings and a higher order of miraculous happenings. He is merely concerned to mark and exploit the difference when presented in the concrete.” 1 The natural and the supernatural are so interwoven that Providential activity is recognized in each and every occurrence that lies outside the normal sequence of events directly under human control and the range of human experience. As the two spheres have become more clearly defined and differentiated, Providence either has assumed a more independent role as an external transcendent Deity or has become merged in the universe and identified itself with its processes in a manner that leaves little or no room for the exercise of sovereign rule, creative guidance and revelational self-disclosure or communication. Man may claim an immediate mystical knowledge of the Absolute within the soul, but an impersonal pantheistic or monistic Ultimate Reality cannot reveal itself like the living God in a personal relationship with His creation.
