The article offers the author's insights regarding God and his creation. The author mentions that God created the universe in order for the human beings to enjoy the divine goodness in a way he enjoys it. The author states that God is a father but not like his father and he is love but not the love known through other humans. Moreover, the author adds that if God creates free and intellectual beings, those persons are capable of free choice in which there is a possibility of sin.
