Rabbi Jack Abramowitz, Torah content editor for the OU, has done a few posts recently in addition to me. I don’t think any topic is too difficult for the modern Western mind. But maybe at times we have to admit that certain parts of the Torah are harder to understand or that while we accept the full package of it, we struggle with certain parts of it.
Haven’t we always struggled? (“Zu Torah v’zu s’charah?”) I don’t think it’s a problem to say we struggle. If we were to completely understand God, He would not be God any more. I think it’s probably worse to say you don’t struggle when there’s a difficult topic, and you’re not bothered by it.
