You are the one who claims to know how God works by subordinating scripture while elevating other parts of scripture. Now you are using the Lutheran answer to the question. I said that it is impossible to know the God behind the Cross. Lutherans apply this consistently in our doctrine. Calvin said that the finite could not contain the infinite, yet it did in the Incarnation. We then apply that to Communion vs say Calvin who thought that Christ was bound up on Heaven and we had to ascend to feast on him in faith.
Americans for the longest time thought they were the only true Christians (the Puritan redeemer nation), however, their practices do not jive with the vast majority of Christianity ever practiced. You know, that cloud of witnesses. I reject Calvin's semi-Nestorianism. Of course another illogical topic is the hypostatic union of Christ. These things you trust in faith alone unaided by reason. I just apply this thinking to the rest of scripture.
May the LORD bless you and keep you
May the LORD make His face shed light upon you and be gracious unto you
May the LORD lift up His face unto you and give you peace
