"If you believe, then God did come down and say it." So anything you believe becomes true? Did the Son of Sam's dog actually talk to him? We can't prove that it didn't... "Actually, that is the thing about his love. He provides a new standard we can meet if we accept it from him. And this new standard is free." If you're falling off a cliff, and I refuse to give you my hand unless you swear that you love me, it's neither loving nor free.
