160. What about the other things which we still do not understand?

There are some things which we will never understand on this earth. However, God intends that our Christian life be a continuing and exciting learning process as we grow in the grace and knowledge of God (2 Peter 1 verses 1-10). God will continually test you on the knowledge you have already gained in order that the knowledge you have, will be mixed with experience and you will be able to discern between right and wrong. Remember the Bible is your guide book in all things and its words will make you a strong and mature Christian (Isaiah 2 verse 3). Remember to take the things you do not understand to God in prayer and ask for His help and enlightenment. Always be ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within you, with meekness and godly reverence (1 Peter 3 verse 15).

Muslims are taught that they cannot know the deeper things of Islâm, and need to seek out scholarly writings and guidance on difficult issues in life. They would usually start with seeking advice from the Imam of the local Mosque. In larger cities there are Islâmic Educational Centres and libraries where scholars are available to give guidance and advice.
