The propensity to dictate to God…

While the propensity to dictate to God the conditions of divine-human relationship is pervasive, it is hardly rational. The religious pluralist’s insistence that God cannot have arranged for our salvation in the exclusivist way of Christianity presupposes a greater knowledge of God than radical religious pluralists are in a position to have on their own assumptions.

Douglas Geivett, from Jesus Under Fire, by J. P. Moreland, p. 199

If God made only one road…

Socrates: If God made the road (to the top of the mountain), and made only one, then it is not arrogance but humility to accept this one road from God, to believe it, and it is not humility but arrogance to insist that your manmade roads are just as good as God’s road. And is it not also arrogant to assume that you know that it is impossible that God made a road?

Peter Kreeft, from Socrates Meets Jesus, p. 94
