I'll admit there are texts, especially in the OT which make me scratch my head or bug me.


Most all of us have head scratchers in the Bible fair-minded. However like you most of us just realize if we could see things from God's perspective it would all fit into place properly. We rely on God's loving, merciful and Graceful character to do what's right and our fallen nature and puny minds just wont comprehend all His doings.

I always remember Him saying he works in mysterious ways and His ways aren't ours, nor are our ways His and in my opinion that indicates most of what He does is simply mysterious to human minds. How do we have three different person-hoods, yet ONE God ? Or that God chose everyone who will spend eternity with Him (pre-planned before creation itself) yet the Bible also speaks of mans volition in the matter ? ?

Personally I believe the hard parts in the Bible confirms it's inspiration by God, if it was written entirely from the mind of man they would have edited out the hard parts don't you think ?  Huh

Nothing about God's Word "bugs" me. If there are parts that I don't understand or question, I just recognize that God's will is perfect. I don't need to understand His ways now. All will be understood in Heaven.

i don't think that everything that happened in the Bible or happens in the world today is God's perfect will at all.  i think people work contrary to God's will and He lets it happen.  what we're left with is the result of our own, humanity's, consequences for actions based on rebellion, pride, and disbelief.

i think when God looks back on history, including Biblical history, there are parts that bug Him as well.  consider that God loves the world  and often the necessary step to protect the righteous was the destruction of some.  those some that were destroyed were loved by God.
