A reflection on revelations

Revelation isn’t something that Christians have invented.   As you can see that all the major religions including Sikhism have said the same thing.  (I will add Sikhsm later from the Guru Granth Sahib).    This is a great place to start because it shows that no person can claim God for themselves.  This shows that when looking at revelation we should be humble and ask God to reveal more of himself.  Obviously, there is a yearning and thirst for God that can only be quenched when we get to our final destination.
Now I need to embark on my own Theological tradition and dig deeper into Romans 1 19-20. I need to dig deep because there is spiritual gold and diamonds to be found. 
This is the line up of Theologians I want to look at. 
I think we first need to look at the text and analyse this part of Romans 1 18-21 NASB
Unbelief and Its Consequences
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. 21 For even though they knew God, they did not honour Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Romans 1:18-21
This is a rather powerful passage and it is in terms of everyone being under the judgement of God.  All have sinned because the revelation is even written on the hearts of people.  By looking at God’s creation then, it is possible to have a glimpse of His divine power, divine nature.  Although this passage has a lot to tell us about how sinful people are. This is not our main purpose here.  Our main purpose is to understand the concept of revelation as seen through the eyes of theologians through the ages.
