    Is the rephrasing fine?

    Dear all,

    I've already asked a question about the following sentences, but let me ask again.



    "Now I know there is a God. If I could come out of that (the car crash) alive and in one piece, it must be because He is watching over me up there..."

    Is it okay to rephrase it as follows with a little difference in nuance?

    "Now I know there is a God. I could come out that alive and in one piece because He is watching over me up there."

    Thank you!

    How about:
    Now I know there is a God. I could only have come out that alive and in one piece because He is watching over me up there.
