In the course of explaining why he doesn’t understand the Trinity, Mike Todd makes this analogy:
Those of you who are parents may relate to this: think about the way you explain complex issues to your young children. You do your best to get the point across, but you do it in terms they can grasp. In the end you leave out a whole lot of details that you know will only confuse, and your explanation sometimes only vaguely resembles the reality of the situation.
I wonder how often God does that with us.
That kind of puts me in my place.
