Thoughts of a Wrestling Teen

“I don’t understand this whole God thing! There are things that He does that just don’t make sense to me. Also I don’t get how anyone can be 100% man and 100% God, wouldn’t that be 200%? You can’t have 200% of anything. I continually wrestle with my mind while my heart rest at ease at the thought of who Jesus is and knowing He resides in my soul. My issue is my brain.

I don’t need all the answers, I just want the answers I do have to make sense. The more I reasearch who He is the more confused I become. This is not what I desire. So does this mean I should stop attaining knowledge about who He is? Of course not, but there is something special about having a child like faith and not letting all my logical and philospohical reasonings to become a blockade. My thoughts are complicated and all over the map. One minute I believe whole-heartedly in who Jesus is and the next second I wrestle with who He really was and is. I don’t know, I guess I was just curious to see if any of you out there wrestle with these same thoughts. I don’t need your educated responses as to why I should believe in Jesus either, I’ve heard them all, what I want to know is if any of you can relate to me!”

    “A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic – on the level of a man who says he’s a poached egg – or else he would be the Devil from Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was and is the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse…. But let us not come to any patronising nonsense about him being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.”
