God does not need us for lack of something else in His Trinitarian life. Would not the “life” of God be less open to doubt if He were not encumbered with needing to explain just why He brought finite, evidently fallible human beings into His world?

I once thought I was too smart to believe in God. Now I know I was an arrogant fool who snubbed the greatest Mind in the cosmos—the Author of all science, mathematics, art, and everything else there is to know.
