Why I believe in God: I believe in God because I believe in evil. For evil to exist, there must be a relative standard of good. Evil is the absence of good just as darkness is the absence of light. That “Good” is God. I believe in God because I believe in imperfection. For imperfection to exist, there must be some comparative standard of absolute perfection that has not been met. That “Perfection” is God. I believe in God because I believe in falsehood. For falsehood to exist, there must be an absolute truth which is in irreconcilable conflict. That “Truth” is God. In short, I believe in God because I can clearly see the shady places where God displays less influence. And by His shadow I can plainly deduce His form.
During the night, angels stared down through the stars into Jacob's world. They watched him sleep. They commented on the way his body folded on the bed. They liked this man. They drew their wings over him and stood guard by his soul.
