Why is it Hard to Accept God?
What every objection to God has in common is the inability of humans to bring God’s ideas, plans, and actions under our understanding and scrutiny. In other words, we think that for us to be able to reasonably accept Him, God must be amenable to our judgments and reason. We feel the need to be able to put our stamp of approval on whatever He does. He must come through us first. In doing this, we swap the infinite for the finite, thinking that our inability to understand what God would know and understand is some kind of death-blow to His existence. Instead, it is a death-blow to our arrogance and a testimony to our ignorance.
This is why it takes humility to accept God.
