Our terrible freedom

And because God’s love is uncoercive and treasures our freedom — if above all he wants us to love him, then we must be left free not to love him — we are free to resist it, deny it, crucify it finally, which we do again and again. This is our terrible freedom, which love refuses to overpower so that, in this, the greatest of all powers, God’s power, is itself powerless.
