Posted on July 9, By Scott Youngren Despite the scientific and philosophical arguments for the existence of God presented on this website and elsewhere, some readers may still be haunted by a persistent question: If he is more than just an imaginary big-daddy-in-the-sky, why does it seem that God is hiding from us?
It stands to reason that the inability of anyone to produce a unicorn is a pretty good reason not to believe in unicorns. Varghese comments in The Wonder of the World: In order for you to see something physically, it must have shape and size and color.
It must reflect light and work its way through our sensory channels until it is registered in the brain. But if you apply these attributes to any being then it can no longer be thought of as infinite.
All of the impressive displays of power in the world will not force us to love him. And if God could force us to love him, it would not really be love.
Love is not love unless it is freely chosen: By applying force, they can make you renounce your God, curse your family, work without pay…kill and then bury your closest friend or even your own mother.
All this is within their power. Only one thing is not: This fact may help explain why God sometimes seems shy to use his power. He created us to love him, but his most impressive displays of miracle—the kind we may secretly long for—do nothing to foster that love.

In an odd sort of way, his kingliness tied his hands. If he brought her to the palace and crowned her head with jewels and clothed her body in royal robes, she would surely not resist—no one dared resist him. But would she love him?
If he rode to her forest cottage in his royal carriage…that too would overwhelm her.THE SPIKE. It was late-afternoon. Forty-nine of us, forty-eight men and one woman, lay on the green waiting for the spike to open.
