I know, I know, it’s a groaner, but so are the countless analogies given by preachers and televangelists. Some of the worst are actually ones about the Trinity as they try to apply logic to an illogical proposition–which has to be believed with faith anyways so why bother.
One of the reasons that led me out of Christianity was all the multiple denominations and nondenominations with differing views–nobody gets along, because they’re just as opinionated and stubborn as the rest of us. I kept trying to figure out which Church correctly interpreted the Bible, or for that matter which Biblical commentary? The obvious conclusion is that God is not in charge of his church, humans are and what God would allow for such bad representation? I kept thinking it either had to be an incompetent God or no God at all.
