The Christianity of today has let itself become contaminated by its adversaries....The metaphor of a search for God is suggestive of efforts of muscular will. It is true that Pascal contributed to the spread of this metaphor. He made several mistakes, notably that of confusing faith and autosuggestion to a certain extent.
In the great symbols of mythology and folklore, in the parables of the Gospel, it is God who seeks man.
Simone Weil, Gravity and Grace p. 195
