The Jew’s God is ironic, a Cosmic Comic. Jewish comics are masters of irony…they got if from their God. Unfortunately, Christians came along and took the Jewish God literally, which is the end of irony. The Jews can dance on their tragedy, the Christians only blame others.
When confronted with a situation that has contradictory commandments: I expect the best; I get the worse…..Then God is Ironic and you just laugh because that is a sign of God’s work, God’s immanence. . In laughter there no blame and no resistance to life. When God is Ironic, there is no resistance to God. When life is serious, God is absent or transcendent.
Ironic means a surprise, a Sting, a Perfect Trap, in which one catches themselves using their own strength, their own powers. No one is doing anything to you; everything is being done by you. So the Ironic God has set life up this way so that the only way to transcend yourself and discover the Transcendent God is through the Immanent God of Just This: You screwed up. You did it all to yourself. In your laugher, in your dance, the Transcendent God and the Immanent God are You.
