maybe we should not let the truth be so simple. Sometimes we need complex art to contain the mystery that is God and life and the world. I mean, after all, the Bible is not always straightforward and clearly explained. Have you read the book of Habakkuk lately? How about Ezekiel? Jesus' parables are pretty difficult to understand. The sacraments are complex and rich and mysterious.
I think there is no reason for being intentionally obscure, but since God saw fit to give us the Bible in the language of literature and poetry and stories, I think responding by simplification is a poor choice.
This is not to say, however, that the church isn't a place for us all to work toward deeper understanding. If we all sat around talking about how we didn't really get it, that wouldn't do us any good either.
...truth in the sense of fullness, o fthe way things are, can at best be only pointed to by the language of poetry - of metaphor, image, symbol - as it is used in the prophets of the Old Testament and elsewhere. - Frederick Buechner
