But God, for the Rabbis, really is immanent. If the God of Genesis 1 represents
the aspect of God's justice, the God indicated by His four-letter name, YHWH,
indicates His mercy. This is the God who tempers justice with mercy so that He
does not, as He should by all right, destroy fragile and fallible humanity. This is
the God who weeps at Israel's exile (which He caused), comforts the mourners
and escorts the bride to the wedding canopy, and listens to the communal and
personal ...

Our society has not made sex free but has cheapened it. If you try to make sex “
casual,” “safe,” and merely pleasurable, it will become destructive and
demeaning. I imagine that God weeps when He sees His gift so degraded. As
Christians, we must rethink our image of God. Instead of being like the God of
Saturday Night Live's Church Lady, with lips puckered in prudish disdain of
pleasure, our God is a progressive fun lover of passion and pleasure. He wants
what is truly best for us.

Moses 7:28–30 God weeps. We can only imagine the sorrow of our Father when
he saw his children so thoroughly engulfed in wickedness. Enoch saw and bore
record that as “the God of heaven looked upon the residue of the people . . . he
wept” (v. 28). This surprised Enoch, who wondered how someone as mighty as
God could weep (vv. 29–39). ! Moses 7:28 God has emotions. He weeps in
sorrow and His anger is kindled when His children do not obey Him (see also
Judges 2:12; ...

As tears are intimately related to, even synonymous wiihkenosis, we find at the
bottom of our tears that it is God who weeps and God who weeps with us. Here is
the exchange of love; here is the gathering of all our pain and all our joy. These
are the tears that wash Ezekiel the prophet; these are the tears of living water
from the well of Jacob; these tears are the living water from the side of Christ,
from the wound that incorporates all our wounds, and in which our lives are
hidden and ...

God dealt with the problem by personally entering into evil and suffering. That is
why the Son of God came into the world. Eighteen months after my little brother
died, when I was still mad at God, a Bible verse broke through to me. It is the
shortestverse in the Bible, which says, “Jesus wept.”67 All of a sudden, the deep
meaning of those two words and their application to my life became clear. The
God of the universe sits beside me and feels my pain. And he weeps. God will
