Kierkegaard

 

"The fact that God could create free beings vis--vis of Himself is the cross which philosophy could not carry, but remained hanging therefrom."
(Auden, 1966, 29)

"The human race ceased to fear God. Then came its punishment; it began to fear itself, began to cultivate the fantastic, and now it trembles before this creature of its own imagination."
(Auden, 49)

"I love a father and a mother differently, and every distinct sort of love has its distinct expression, but there is also a love by which I love God, and there is only one word in the language which expresses it... it is repentance. When I do not love Him thus, I do not love Him absolutely, do not love Him with my inmost being, and every other sort of love for the absolute is a misunderstanding for when thought clings to the absolute with all its love, it is not the absolute I love, I do not love absolutely, for I love necessarily; as soon as I love freely and love God I repent. And if there might be any reason why the expression for my love of God is repentance, it would be because He has loved me first."
(Auden, 81-82)

"For if God does not exist it would of course be impossible to prove it; and if He does exist it would be folly to attempt it."
(Auden, 141)

"But between God and His works there exists an absolute relationship;...The works of God are such that only God can perform them."
(Auden, 143)
