A God you can understand?

It is a theologian’s task to read, study, and interpret the Scriptures.  However, any honest theologian will tell you that there are things in the Bible that “stump” us.

When we come against the un-understandable in Scripture, we simply put our trust in the God who is trustworthy, righteous, and just.  God cannot be wrong because of who he is … if he can be wrong about any decree or decision, then he is not God.

Yet many people want to question God’s decrees and decisions.  It’s because they don’t know the God of the Bible and they don’t know the God of the Bible because they don’t read the Bible.

The only way to have an uncorrupted view of God is to go to an uncorrupted source … the Bible.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.  (Isaiah 55:8-9)

A God you can completely understand is not a god worth having.
