When God Becomes A Puzzle To Be Solved

When thinking God stops being hard, when the possibility of atheism stops making a very personal appeal, when the terrifyingly agape abyss closes and across the expanse from right here to the distant horizon is an uninterrupted plain . . . and God becomes a puzzle to be solved, a kind of quandary, then everything has been lost—not just the doctrines of the faithful—but the poor, the lonely, the suffering, the dead, and the damned . . . the neighbor; i.e., salvation, heaven and earth, life and death, tomorrow and yesterday, it has all been lost.
