Cornelius Van Til on the Relationship Between Man, God and His Creation

"Moreover, because man is created in the image of God, we may say that he has the revelation of God's presence built into his constitution. His knowledge of God is innate, in the sense that his own constitution reflects to himself the presence of God.

And this innate knowledge as revelation of God is correlative to the revelation of God in man's environment. Thus man's knowledge of God never operates independently of the knowledge he acquires from observation of his environment.

Still further, man's knowledge of God through observation of his own constitution and his knowledge of God through his study of his environment do not function independently of God's direct person-to-person covenantal communication.

Thus the whole of man's relation to God, and indirectly the whole of man's relation to his created environment, is a person-to-person, a covenantal affair. Man is he who as God's image bearer answers to God. He answers to God. He answers to God always and everywhere."
