One thing that has always bothered me is when people ask questions (in order to get answers to) what God has not revealed.
This is evil and always leads to heresy.
It’s like we forget that “the secret things belong to the Lord, but the revealed things belong to us.” (Deut 29:29) We can only understand what is revealed. For what is revealed, we are warned:
Stand at the crossroads, and look,
and ask for the ancient paths,
where the good way lies; and walk in it,
and find rest for your souls (Jer 6:16).
The ancient paths are those that have already been trod–this admonishment is not about walking. It is about sticking to revelation and how it has always been interpreted.
So, those who devise their wicked syllogisms and in their prelest think they can ask questions no one can ask and get answers God has never revealed to His people, listen to the words of Jesus of Sirach:
Neither seek what is too difficult for you,
nor investigate what is beyond your power.
Reflect upon what you have been commanded,
for what is hidden is not your concern.
Do not meddle in matters that are beyond you,
for more than you can understand has been shown you. (Ecclesaisticus 3:21-23)
What is hidden is not our concern. We must only reflect on what God has given us. This will help us avoid every heresy such as rationalism, Papalism, forensic justification, Arianism, Nestorianism, and the like.
