British theologian Frederic W. Farrar (1831 - 1903) insisted that God's silence was a fact to only those who refused to listen for His voice:
"They suffer, and there is no God. They sin and there is no Redeemer. They despair, and there is no Comforter. God forgotten is God ignored; God ignored is God doubted of; God doubted of is God denied; God denied, sooner or later is God detested."
"Take the trouble to listen; perhaps you will find Him speaking to you."
