One may not be able to deduce unique conclusions from some writings.
The main point is that when the truth is know, we realize that the
writings is consistent with the newly found truth. We cannot answer
all the important questions that we now have. Leave some for when you
meet the Lord. The main point is not to be a stumbling block or an
obstacle for leading people into the Lord. Moorad

exist true but not provable statements.
You can only find the truth with logic
If you have already found the truth
without it. (G.K. Chesterton)
