There was once a great Rebbe who was asked lots of basic theological questions.
Why does God do this? Why does God do that?
He answered by saying, “A God that every man on the street can understand is not a God I would believe in.”
If I want a God made exactly to my measure, a God that I can put into my pocket, then it is possibly not worth having such a God.
It is important to ask questions, all kinds of questions, and to know that asking those questions does not undermine one’s faith.
I was once a student of mathematics.
I learned about so many unanswered problems and so many paradoxes and so many logical contradictions.
Do these things undermine my belief or understanding of mathematics?
Not at all.
