By their very nature, spiritual beliefs and doctrines present paradoxical dilemmas. God is three in one. Jesus comes as a human and is of divine nature. His mother Mary is a virgin and a mother.
To understand these and other contradictions, those with rational minds search on, through other modalities: intellectual, spiritual, emotional.
Creatively searching these paradoxical mysteries leads us to meet God in honesty, finding love and forgiveness.
We move forward with increased wisdom; hearing and seeing things on multiple levels at the same time.
“Wisdom is supreme; so acquire wisdom. And whatever you may acquire, gain understanding” (Proverbs 4:7)
