Question with Boldness

…shake off all the fears & servile prejudices under which weak minds are servilely crouched. fix reason firmly in her seat, and call to her tribunal every fact, every opinion. question with boldness even the existence of a god; because, if there be one, he must more approve the homage of reason, than that of blindfolded fear . ~ Thomas Jefferson

We cannot surprise God,
cannot surprise Him,
cannot anger Him
with our doubts, our indecision,
our boldness, our reckless doubts.
God made us, gave us ability to reason,
does not take affront when we use the gift.
If we even go so far as  to question
with boldness the existence of a God
we’re acting in the way He created us.

The Flight of Lot.
