Yeah I had similar questions too, plus others such as: how the heck can God be big enough to fill the universe, yet small enough to fit in my heart? And: God was lonely so He created Adam and Eve so He could have children (seriously?!). Not to mention the Trinity. That one really doesn't make sense.
I didn't (and still don't) like the Protestant idea that basically if you just believe Jesus exists, you're good to go. Nonsense. Why should Christ have to suffer unimaginable agony, while I simply wear a cross and say "ta muchly"?
I'll take the (backhanded) compliment implied in your last sentence, thanks 😀 and sure - I'll ping you in HO.
