Remember all temptation is but this — a mad belief that God’s insanity would make you sane and give you what you want. That either God or you must lose to madness because your aims cannot be reconciled. Death demands life, but life is not maintained at any cost. No one can suffer for the Will of God to be fulfilled. Salvation is His Will because you share it. Not for you alone but for the Self which is the Son of God. He cannot lose, for if he could, the loss would be his Father’s, and in Him no loss is possible. And this is sane because it is the truth.
