God is one, unoriginate, incomprehensible, possessing completely the total potentiality of being, altogether excluding notions of when and how, inaccessible to all, and not to be known through any natural image by any creature.

*Early Orthodox Theologian, Maximus the Confessor (580-662)

An atheist and theist had been arguing about the existence of God. They approached a spiritual Teacher. The atheist said, “Teacher, am I not right that one cannot prove the existence of God?” The Teacher replied, “I do not believe in God.” Stunned, the theist spoke to the Teacher, “Sir, since you are a noted spiritual Teacher, you must believe in God.” Replied the Teacher, “My friend, I do.” The atheist said, “Sir, but you just said you do not believe in God.” “Right,” replied the Teacher.

Rabbi David Aaron writes, in Endless Light, a striking statement. He observes that he often shocks his students by saying that, even though he is a rabbi, he does not believe in "God." "I don’t believe in God, but what I believe in, I call God."
