To L. Stehli
Dear Frau Stehli, 31 October 1952
Were I not old and ill I would take the trouble to explain to you personally why human ideas of God are not necessarily right.
God is something unknowable. An old German mystic has said: “God is a sigh in our souls.”
Paul, as you know, said something similar.
My personal religious convictions are not shaken in the slightest by the fearful contradictions in the Biblical texts.
I just wanted to tell you this to set your mind at rest.
With kind regards,
