In a history of Heaven (that may have been its title) I read some decades
ago & remember only vaguely, one of the modern versions (I forget which
theologian) was that God would _remember_ us, but there would be no personal
immortality. And if God is to remember us, She must first believe in us, No?
And if Monsieur Verdoux just before his execution is accepted as an
authority, God would forgive him since after all, God made him: that would
imply God believed in him.
Milton & Aquinas agree that God does not experience Necessity, and that is
too bad. God would be easier to swallow if one thought of creation as an act
God could not _not_ perform. It's an awfully good movie anyhow.
