I have problems with several religious issues, but I think they are all related, however perhaps it is best to have concerns.
I have asked for explanations from several sources, without success. Sometimes I am reminded of the movie “A Serious Man”, which is really a modern version of the Book of Job.( http://sinema7.net/2010/03/contrast-and-comparison-between-a-serious-man-and-the-book-of-jobplus-schrodingers-paradox-just-for-fun/)
Perhaps the worst sin is pride, trying to be like God, understanding everything. A bit of humility in one’s ability to understand is no harm.
So perhaps agnosticism is the best approach for me, with humility admit I do not understand or know God, as he is.
I include some quotes that may be relevant.
16 The LORD God gave the man this order: You are free to eat from any of the trees of the garden except the tree of knowledge of good and evil. From that tree you shall not eat; when you eat from it you shall die. (Gen. 2:16-17 NAB)
8 See to it that no one captivate you with an empty, seductive philosophy according to human tradition, according to the elemental powers of the world and not according to Christ. (Col. 2:8 NAB)
NAB 1 Corinthians 8:1 Now in regard to meat sacrificed to idols: we realize that “all of us have knowledge”; knowledge inflates with pride, but love builds up. (1 Cor. 8:1 NAB)

12 At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known. So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love. (1 Cor. 13:12-13 NAB)
4 or to concern themselves with myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the plan of God that is to be received by faith (1 Tim. 1:4 NAB)

23 Avoid foolish and ignorant debates, for you know that they breed quarrels. (2 Tim. 2:23 NAB)

16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to counsel him?” But we have the mind of Christ. (1 Cor. 2:16 NAB)
34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord or who has been his counselor? Or who has given him anything that he may be repaid?” (Rom. 11:34-35 NAB)
