" The infinite value of each human soul is not a Christian doctrine. God did not die for man because of some value he perceived in him. The value of each human soul considered simply in itself, out of relation to God, is zero. As St. Paul writes, to have died for valuable men would have been not divine but merely heroic; but God died for sinners. He loved us not because we were lovable, but because He is Love. It may be that He loves us all equally—He certainly loved all to the death—and I am not certain what the expression means. If there is equality, it is in His love, not in us. "
" God is not hurried along in the Time-stream of this universe any more than an author is hurried along in the imaginary time of his own novel. He as infinite attention to spare for each one of us. He does not have to deal with us in the mass. You are as much alone with Him as if you were the only being He had ever created. When Christ died, He died for you individually just as much as if you had been the only man in the world. "
