Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, "The God who is with us is the God who forsakes us (Mark 15:34). The God who lets us live in the world without the working hypothesis of God is the God before whom we stand continually. Before God and with God we live without God. God lets himself be pushed out of the world on to the cross. He is weak and powerless in the world, and that is precisely the way, the only way, in which he is with us and helps us. Christ helps us, not by virtue of his omnipotence, but by virtue of his weakness and suffering" (Letters and Papers from Prison).

Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me."
