He does require Faith. Because something doesn't make sense to us doesn't necessarily mean it isn't true.<quoted text>
Educated Christians know and admit there are errors aplenty in the Bible. Yahweh does not require rationalization.
Or, as you say, what does makes sense to us isn't necessarily true.
We do not decide Truth. Jesus was the Way, the Truth, and the Life that brings us to the Father (God/The Holy Trinity).
