He knows your name

In the great religions of the East, the believers, with their individuality, resemble the rivers which flow into the ocean, and are dissolved in it. Through the All-in-One or in the notheringness of Nirvana the individual finds his fulfillment in his own dissolution. But where Christ holds sway, we do not flow into a nameless ocean; we do not dissolve into a nothingness which comprises everything. No: where the God who himself seeks man has the last word, I am rather called by my own name.
