The relationship between God and the world is extremely complex and has occupied the Philosophy since its inception. The contribution of Christianity is decisive in the history of thinking about these relationships. On the one hand, God must somehow be accessible to mankind, but mankind only possesses the philosophical and scientific knowledge to understand how God acts. And then there is the mystery: there are divine actions that have no valid analogy with worldly or human actions. But there are other actions, if we are to understand God at all, which do admit of analogies. The way we understand the world development in modern and contemporary physics financial aid to understand divine action in some way, but if we only take that into account, our image of divine action as human beings loses meaning. We can also understand human action from rational action itself, but then we can only understand strategic actions. What escapes us in both cases is what is decisive: the end. We propose, in any case, concrete ways of overcoming the aporias that arise in thinking about divine action in the world, following especially Zizinski's suggestions.
