One Might Have Thought

One might have thought that the Scriptures would offer straightforward and unequivocal answers to questions, answers that would immediately win the assent of readers. They do not do so, partly because most serious questions are complex, mysterious and unamenable to straight answers. Biblical faith involves not having answers to all questions but having the central clues that enable one to live with questions and to trust God over questions to which we do not have the answers.
