We must believe what we cannot Understand

“To expect that we, who cannot understand anything, not even ourselves, should understand these mysteries of the Godhead, is to the last degree unreasonable. But as in every other sphere, we must believe what we cannot understand; so we may believe all that God has revealed in his Word concerning himself, although we cannot understand the Almighty unto perfection.”

Charles Hodge, Systematic Theology, vol 1, 461-2, as quoted by James P. Boyce, Abstract of Systematic Theology, 155.
