David Gregory's life has come full circle. Despite a love for writing and liberal arts in high school and college, David opted for a “more practical” business degree that launched him into a successful ten-year career in compensation management with three consulting firms and Texas Instruments. After a decade of spreadsheets, however, he was ready to look for a career offering more personal meaning.

“So Allah has to deny perfect justice in order to be merciful. There’s no penalty for wrongdoing if you have done enough good things to offset it. But true justice doesn’t work that way, not even on earth. If someone is convicted of fraud, the judge doesn’t say, ‘Well, he was a kind Little League coach. That offsets it.’ In Islam, Allah is not perfectly just, because if he were, people would have to pay the penalty for every sin, and no one would get into paradise. That’s what perfect justice is.” I pushed the vegetables around on my neglected plate. “But I thought God is forgiving. You’re implying that because of justice, God can’t forgive.” “God is forgiving. God wants to forgive people more than anything in the world, to restore them to himself. What I’m saying is that God’s desire to forgive doesn’t negate his perfect justice. Someone has to pay the penalty for sins. God’s justice demands it.”
David Gregory, Dinner with a Perfect Stranger: An Invitation Worth Considering

“He’d have to be really smart. The universe is pretty intricate. And humans themselves are so complex, given what we’ve learned about DNA and all.'
“Okay, God would have to be super intelligent.”
'Yeah. I’m not sure I buy that design in the universe proves God, but if there was a God, he would really be intelligent – and powerful – to pull it all off.”
David Gregory, A Day with a Perfect Stranger

“But God – I mean, even if there is a God – reaching out to him… Who would know where to start?”
“You don’t have to start,” he answered. “God has already started. He is already reaching out to you. That’s why he became a person.”
