The limits of theology

*

If you get Christianity from an authoritative source, it will quite likely be a simple account - a linear narrative, suitable for simple people.

It is your job to understand and accept this.

*

If you ask a question, then bear in mind that the answer will not be...

1. Simple.

2. Easily comprehensible.

3. Reliable.

4. Complete.

*

Sometimes theological answers may clarify things, but always at a cost.

Safest to regard problems as a mystery, pending spiritual progress.
