Since Religion and Faith are the very core and purpose of life. Since there is nothing that is more important, nothing else that is eternal, why are they so mysterious? Why doesn’t God just come right out and state plainly what he intends to do? Why the mystery?
I also know that it is no simple matter to explain spiritual things to a physical mind. We live in a one-way universe. It had a beginning and it is headed toward an inexorable end. So are we.
So how do we get our mind around a God who had no beginning and has no end? This was the mystery that Paul was struggling with in his letter to the Romans.
