“You shall love the Lord your God with… all your mind.” That is the commandment as stated in the Gospels. It is new: the Old Testament does not mention the mind. It is new and it is revolutionary.
We can all make sense of God: If we couldn’t, he wouldn’t be so cruel as to command us to do something that can’t be done.
We should each of us try doing it: this is not something to be left to the experts. It isn’t a question of “getting the right answer”. It is a question of getting close to God in every way we can. Including using the mind as an organ of love.
