We’ve all heard it said that we only use about 10 percent of our brains. I don’t know how anybody would prove this but somehow, I do find it easy to believe. As human beings, we’re so finite in our ability to think.
Here’s what I’m talking about: In life, we have so many questions that we can never answer regardless of how hard we try. To be honest though, it’s evident there is a higher calling because we need someone who is capable on answering tough questions. I think God is sitting up in heaven, shaking His head and laughing at us for not being able to understand such an easy concept.
There are questions surrounding our universe. How big is the universe? If anything, what is on the other side? If there’s nothing on the other side, how can that be? If there’s no end to it?
Then there are so many questions about God Himself. How could He be all powerful, all knowing and all loving when there is so much evil in the world and people are going to hell?
These are the issues being debated over in church. Some say it’s impossible for man to resist God’s irresistible grace while others say God allows us to choose. If it’s impossible to resist his grace, why are so many people going to hell? Is that not contradictory to the scripture where it says God is love ( 1 John 4:8) and that he desires ALL to come to the knowledge of truth (1 Tim 2:4)?
In our limited finite minds, it doesn’t make sense. You can’t have the good without the bad, but there’s an easy explanation, one that we’ll one day find out when we meet our father in heaven.
You can go back and forth on these topics until you have a headache, but we ultimately have to decide on what we’re OK with not understanding and be OK with the fact we will never use 100 percent of our brains.
