Voltaire, I agree with you...

...this is the "best of all possible worlds!" However, where you would conclude, therefore, we need no concept of God; I would differ.

This world, this life, is the best possible place and the best possible way to learn what we must to enter God's Kingdom, which is no mere world. Here we have the choice to learn the way of Jesus, the way of Love Eternal.

I find it so inspiring to read philosophers and other writers who had genuine axes to grind with Christianity as they experienced it. Nietzsche remains one of my all time favorite philosophers. Voltaire has some great points as well. I wish more followers of Christ would wrestle with their objections with more intellectual honesty. Thanks for journeying into the turbulent waters.
