Which mystery do you want to penetrate? I do not think that anybody can
understand and penetrate the mysteries of Christianity, consequently not
either the mysteries of God's love, of God's creation, etc. While this is
a forum for Christians who are scientists, we can only learn the beginning
of some mysteries. After all we have a created brain, and can never hope
to understand our Creator, and His ways of doing things. Trying to
understand everything will only get you in trouble and more things you do
not understand.
