By insisting specially on the immanence of God we get introspection, self-isolation…social indifference – Tibet. By insisting specially on the transcendence of God we get wonder, curiosity, moral and political adventure, righteous indignation – Christendom.
Insisting that God is inside man, man is always inside himself.
By insisting that God transcends man, man has transcended himself.
– G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
