God Cannot Feel Disappointment or Pain


“Your god must feel a bit disappointed,” Doctor Colin said, “when he looks at this world of his.”

“When you were a boy they can’t have taught you theology very well. God cannot feel disappointment or pain.”

“Perhaps that’s why I don’t care to believe in him.”

— Graham Greene, _A Burnt-Out Case_
