Stuff I Don’t Get–A New Series


Back in the blogging Stone Age of 2003, when I first started writing Cerulean Sanctum, I used to get commenters who claimed I was a know-it-all.

I don’t get those kinds of comments or e-mails anymore because time has set that record straight. Many answers to common questions about life and faith elude me.

While I try to share with you what God is teaching me, big chunks of ignorance still cloud my vision. Which is why I’m starting this series.

In the next few weeks, I’m going to pose the spiritual questions I struggle with. Some are brainbusters, some questions of logical inconsistencies, and some just paradoxical puzzles concerning different denominational or theological oddities.

No matter the question, I hope each post gets plenty of feedback from readers. Seriously, I want to understand—and perhaps others of you have the same questions—so your responses will make or break this series.

Thank you in advance for your wise answers, and please stay tuned for tomorrow’s question.

  1. I look forward to reading this series, Dan. I can’t think that I am going to be in a position to give any wise answers to the questions that have perplexed much cleverer people than me for thousands of years but I will say that I am encouraged by this: in spite of not having everything nailed down and all questions neatly tied up, we continue to believe that God IS, and that he is the rewarder of those who seek him. This seems to me to be the bottom line. There are many perplexing things that we may not be able to square up from our limited perspective but being convinced of God’s existence and goodness gives us the freedom to have a few unsolved mysteries.
