Summary

Neither does the agent suffer

Nor the patient act. But both are fixed

In an eternal action, an eternal patience

To which all must consent that it may be willed

And which all must suffer that they may will it …

–T. S. Eliot, Murder in the Cathedral

What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us … no religion has ever been greater than its idea of God.

– A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
