Q. After my wife passed away, I told my young son that his mother had left us forever and has gone to God’s house. My son wants to fight with God and bring his mother back, saying that God is very bad and should not have taken his mother away. He asks, ‘Where does God live?’

A. Your young son’s question ‘Where does God live?’ is a beautiful question that is worth trying to find the answer to. When you come to know where God is, you can also find out where your wife is because she has gone to where God resides. Your child is right. You must fight with the bad god who your son thinks took your wife away since he is not the true God but a fake god, an illusion of god. The true God never does such a mean thing as taking a mother and wife from her children and husband. When you defeat the bad god, you will not merely come to know where the true God lives but also see Him in person.
