We simply do not believe

in a God who is so intrinsically good that His commitment to be fully Himself is equivalent to a commitment to be very good to us. When he tells us that He is out for His own glory, and will glorify Himself by making known who He is, we can relax. It's something like a wealthy, generous father declaring his intention to display his true character. We know we're in for a bundle. That is, if we're his heirs.

Hi. :-) Just wanted to say that I really miss you. I hope to see you in the upcoming months once Wolf returns. Don't really care to make the pilgrimage again...even though they tell me that Bambi isn't nearly as ferocious in the mid-winter.
