Kevin DeYoung, my favorite blogger, today asks and answers the question concerning, “What to do when the Bible baffles.”   This is a really good post that answers explicit and implicit attacks on the inspiration and clarity (or for you hard-core theology readers, perspicuity) of Scripture.  Below is the “nugget” in this article:

But who are we to put God in a box and describe him with our human words? Sounds like a good point, until you consider that using human words was God’s idea. It seems pious to refrain from speaking on behalf of God when  disputes over Scripture arise, but if God’s meaning is so often undecipherable, it begs the question: why did God reveal himself so poorly that we can’t understand anything about him?
