In 1952, ]] wrote a brief book whose content is helpful, but whose title alone led me to buy it: ]]….. I fear that today the Christian church …. is often guilty of worshiping a small God whose mystery we think we’ve nailed down in our black-and-white theology such that we can proclaim that only our church or denomination fully understands the mind and will of God.
That was the quote which stuck out to me at yesterday’s discussion group. I think that the author is correct – we seem to limit God to our interpretations, and once we see that they are wrong, we sometimes are led into blaming God, or accusing God of being wrong.
Is your God one which fits neatly into your theological interpretations? Do you know everything about Him? Are you the only one right, doctrinally speaking?
