According to most philosophers, God in making the world enslaved it.

According to Christianity, in making it, He set it free. God had written, not so much a poem,

but rather a play; a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it.

Orthodoxy – GK Chesterton, 1874-1936
