The thought came into my mind that presence is the ultimate masculine quality. Call it charisma, gravitas, power, authority, what have you. Whatever it was that George Washington acquired and Jesus had. (It occurs to me that the same is probably true of feminity. We, groping our way in the dim light of our own reason, can get ahead a little by defining manliness and womanliness in terms of other qualities. But ultimately they are their own things and they themselves can be felt.)
God has presence. Revelations says that God doesn’t act to cause the end of the world. He just reveals himself. It is his presence that causes the earth to flame and the mountains to run down into the sea. He is hell for the sinner and heaven for the saint, without pronouncing a word of judgment.
