Mr Einstein: “Nobody certainly, will deny that the idea of the existence of an omnipotent, just and omni-beneficient personal God is able to accord man solace, help and guidance; also, by virture of its simplicity it is accessible to the most undeveloped mind. But, on the other hand, there are decisive weaknesses attached to this idea in itself, which have been painfully felt since the beginning of history.”
Mr Einstein, continued: “That is if this being is omnipotent, then every occurrence, including every human action, every human thought, and ever human feeling and aspiration is also His work; how is it possible to think of holding men responsible for their deeds and thought before such an almighty Being? In giving out punishment and rewards, He would to a certain extent be passing judgment on Himself. How can this be combined with the goodness and righteousness ascribed to Him?” -Albert Einstein
Me: Mr Einstein…The weakness that you so readily attach to the Creator of all things is a weakness in your concept of Him. God is more than goodness and righteousness. He is also just. We humans cannot comprehend righteousness combined with love and justice and mercy.
You said: ” In giving out punishment and rewards, He would to a certain extent be passing judgment on Himself.” And that’s exactly what He did….Not for His own sins because He had none…but for our’s. He took the punishment Himself for us. Could you not see the love in that, Mr. Einstein?
You do err Sir, not knowing the complete Scriptures… 1 Corinthians 1: 18: “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” The Pure and Innocent, Who had so much love for the human race that He was willing to die physically, that we might live eternally….That terrible day when love mercy and justice, met together…but He lives again today!
