Boiling down belief

Here's a sample of the best meditation on 1 Cor. 1:26 I've ever come across. It's by Jeff Weddle at anti-itch meditation:
Just because you can’t figure out how predestination and free will exist at the same time, doesn’t mean they don’t.

Just because you can’t explain the Trinity, doesn’t mean it aint true.

Just because the virgin birth makes no sense doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

Just because you can understand something doesn’t mean it’s true.

There are many things in Scripture that don’t make sense. Things that have confounded the wise for centuries. But if the Bible says it, it’s true, whether you can explain it or not.

All theological truths eventually boil down to “I believe it because the Bible says it.” If your theological beliefs boil down to “I believe it because I understand it fully” be careful.
Amen.

Of course, some things can be understood...

I often tell people, "If you can understand the Trinity completely, you're probably wrong."
