One of the most famous passages in the Bible is John 11:35, “Jesus wept.” The concept of a weeping deity is not unfamiliar to Christianity. It’s not uncommon for parents to tell their young children that rain is really God crying, or that God’s tears over the debauchery of His people caused the great flood. Is there a more endearing image of God than this -- of Him being moved to tears over what we’ve become?

If a tree falls in the woods, yadda yadda. But if God cries over the world and no one on earth listens, then what?
