God would not test our faith with designed-implausibility. -2

Reasons to agree: 3
  1. God cannot be said to purposely deceive us, and also be a god of truth. 
  2. Saying that God purposely made his Church hard for intellectuals to accept disrespects God
  3. The normal course of life provide enough stumbling blocks, without designed-implausibility.  What would such a construct of God be salvaging?
Reasons to disagree: -5
  1. God never explains himself. He told Abraham to kill his son. Abraham could have researched if that commandment jived with the other commandments, but we are supposed to believe that it was counted to Abraham for righteousness.
  2. Elijah (?) didn't explain himself when he told that guy to bath in that river (?) to fix his leprosy
  3. We are told that Jesus purposely made the "eat of my flesh" and "drink of my blood" commandment confusing, as a test to weed out his followers.
  4. God's ways are not our ways. 
  5. God doesn't have to follow our rules.
