Deep down in every man, woman, and child is the fundamental idea of God.
It may be obscured by calamity, by pomp, by worship of other things,
but in some form or other it is there.
For faith in a Power greater than ourselves,
and miraculous demonstrations of that of that power in human lives,
are facts as old as man himself…
We found the Great Reality deep down with us.
Alocholics Anonymous, P.55
I love this! A few years ago, on one of the morning shows, there was a story about some parents who were raising their child as an atheist. They showed a whole segment that they had pre-recorded about their life. At the end of the show, they did a live interview with the parents and their child. The newsanchor asked the child, “Do you believe in God?” The child immediately said “yes”. His parents looked down at him in disbelief; then he looked at them and immediately said “oh, I mean no, I don’t.” His immediate response reflected the great reality in his heart. This example to me epitomizes the passage above.
