PostSubject: A Note on Leibniz' Faith   Mon Sep 28, 2015 12:39 pm

"For conversion is purely the work of God's grace, wherein man cooperates only by resisting it; but human resistance is more or less great according to the persons and the occations."

Beautiful passage and honorable ethos.

When human resistence proves greater than the grace of God, God has died. This is at first felt as a great tragedy and loss, as God's grace allowed human resistence to it reveal all sorts of wonders. Then, one is simply filled with gratitude.
