It [faith] is a decision, a judgment that is fully and deliberately taken in the light of a truth that cannot be proven.
Now you say, “How shall I proceed to think of God as he is in himself?” To this I can only reply, “I do not know.”

The presence of God is infinite, everywhere, always, and forever. You cannot not be in the presence of God. There’s no other place to be. It is we who are not present to Presence.

Christianity is not about avoiding punishment or gaining reward. It is about loving God and loving what God loves. And what God loves is the whole of creation.
Christian life is a commitment to love, to give birth to God in one’s own life and to become midwives of divinity in this evolving cosmos.
