Belief in God today is what it always has been. A commit­ment to a way of living based on response to a way of giving – to the way in which God gives himself to us in Jesus Christ, through our fellow believers, through that of God in every man and in the possibilities of the universe. Moreover, belief in God is experimental living and it is experiencing living. It is not being sure of a set of sentences nor of a set of facts which tell us that God exists, For if God is God then he must establish himself. If he is not God then there is nothing whatever to be done about it. But I am bound to bear witness to you that he is God – the living God who is active today to smash all the idols of religion in which men seek to start him up, and active today to meet and fulfil all the needs and possibilities of truly human living, in this world and beyond it.
