Tell Them Who I Am: The True Nature of God

Convinced that the contradiction was not a contradiction after all, I committed myself to uncovering its meaning, but it was so difficult to decipher that I immediately realized that only divine intervention could help me solve the puzzle.

First, I thought that heavenly assistance could come through someone who might already know the answer, but soon I began to doubt that anyone would even know that the contradiction existed. Nevertheless, I decided to choose a person to initiate my investigation. This person was the leader of the Bible study group at the dorm, a man apparently well instructed in affairs concerning the study of the Bible.

When he confessed this to me later, I asked him why he was telling me that, and he just answered that I knew why. This was the second person telling me about my blessing, and I wondered how I could have been blessed, sitting in jail among so many criminals, including myself.
