Theism allows us to live within our humanity more comfortably


”Theism allows us to live within our humanity more comfortably.
We need not distrust our deepest intuitions—our intuitions of love, of reason, of beauty.
We can relax into them.
The fundamental feeling that this world—and our place within it—means something is not deceiving us. We are not “accidental collocations of atoms,” as Bertrand Russell put it — we are characters in the middle of the greatest story ever told.
We are not rolling a boulder up a hill with Sisyphus — we are progressing dramatically toward the final chapter. ”
