The Universe loves laughter?

God Loves Laughter, by William Sears
Misleading

The decline in quality and propriety of book titles has been going on for decades. In 1960, William Sears, a retired radio and television personality, put out a book with the title “God Loves Laughter”, despite the obvious fact that God is beyond limitations.

One very important consequence of God’s being incomparable is that God is not limited in any way. The reason is that if we describe God using a particular quality, then we immediately limit him to that quality and rule out other qualities that are the opposite. For example, if we assert that God is loving, then we rule out the possibility that God is wrathful. God, therefore, must be beyond description because any word we use to describe God limits him to the qualities of that description. God is unlimited or unconstrained: “God, alone, transcendeth … limitations”(G:LXXVIII, 150).
