David Hayward shows us a phenomenon I’m sure many Christians have experienced:
But for so many of them, it doesn’t mean goodbye.
If anything, they try to rationalize for the fact that god never actually responds.
I just need stronger faith.
That voice I just made up was God speaking to me, right?
God will come back soon.
God’s just testing me right now.
It’s a cruel joke, really, that they can’t always distinguish between the invisible and the non-existent.
It takes courage to finally admit god’s not coming back. Or, more importantly, that he never even said hello in the first place.
