I am what I am


On page 65 of your Valentine edition there is an anonymous piece about the question of God. The author makes the arrogant assumption that he could convince me of the supposed attributes of God. This he would be unable to do, for in order to be convinced I would have to first agree to the premise on which he bases his argument. This I would not do, since I am of the same mind as Jung: "I don't believe—I know." The most he could do is present his arguments. The agreement comes from within me. As a Christian it is not my place to prove or disprove the existence of God. What I can do is help you get to a place where God can prove to you there is a God. To ask the question of God, "who are you?" and listen to the answer. Perhaps the author would take the meditation challenge—20 minutes a day for six months—and then do a second edition of the piece.
