I understand what it is you are getting at in this article, and the fact that this is written mostly for encouragement of those who already have faith.
That being said and with full appreciation of truths enunciated in this post, it is important also to fashion intellectual responses rooted in facts, history, and the sciences to the “how can a God of love magnify suffering in the world argument.”
Thanks for reminding us how it is wise that when we have questions about spiritual things, we seek answers with our spirit as opposed to our physical senses.
The person who does not believe he or she is spirit living in a body thus making up a soul possessive of emotions and desires? Only the Holy Spirit can enlighten such a person. The good news? Such were some of us, but we have been washed in the blood and sanctified in the Spirit for salvation, regeneration, and reconciliation.
