"I obey Thee, Lord, first for
the love I ought in all reason to bear Thee; secondly for that Thou canst shorten or
prolong the lives of men."
(Richter, 1970, 237)
O God, dost sell us all good things at the price of labor."
"O admirable impartiality of Thine, Thou
first mover; Thou hast not permitted that any force should fail of the order or quality of
its necessary effects."
Does God Exist?
