Before we reject God, it is best to make sure we know Him as He is and not as we have wrongly imagined him to be. This first of three brief posts on the theme of God comes from C. S. Lewis.
“God is Goodness. He can give good, but cannot need or get it. In that sense all His love is, as it were, bottomlessly selfless by very definition; it has everything to give and nothing to receive. Hence, if God sometimes speaks as though the Impassible could suffer passion and eternal fullness could be in want, and in want of those beings on whom it bestows all, from their bare existence upwards, this can mean only, if it means anything intelligible by us, that God of mere miracle has made Himself able so to hunger, and created in Himself that which we can satisfy. If He requires us, the requirement is of His own choosing.”
