“There was once a great Rebbe who was asked lots of basic theological questions.
Why does God do this and that?
He answered by saying that a God that every rotten man can understand is not a God I would believe in.
If I want a God that I can put into my little pocket, it is possibly not worth being with.
If I want God to be my measure, to be exactly made to my measure and to feelings that change with every newspaper article, it is possibly not worth having such a God.”
From Pebbles of Wisdom from Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz (forthcoming)
