Example text

I want more of God. God wants all of me. Since nothing is beyond his power, why, oh why won’t he come down here to dwell with me and protect me, even if it means giving up his precious holiness and justice? I have been thinking theoretically here in terms of a God who is self-limited, but these are much stronger words. God cannot. For example, the apostle Paul made note of God’s limitations in an easily overlooked aside to his protégé, Timothy: If we are faithless, he will remain faithful, for he cannot disown himself.

The discussion remains civil, but it seems that any challenge to the groups’ theology must be corrected, so all comments are solidly aimed at that one goal: arriving at a preconceived answer. In response to every question I send speeding up to heaven, God sends a shower of answers back to earth, and sometimes the answers seem contradictory. This Saturday morning, when I’m still rubbing sleep from my eyes and the main thing on my mind as I enter temple is getting to the coffee urn, what should I do with these paradoxes of the Bible?

Psalms 50:9–10 In the Torah God requires his chosen people to bring the firstborn of their flocks to offer on the altar as if the animals were their own possessions, though the Lord provided the animals in the first place. Unless this is kept in mind I am merely God’s unwitting servant facilitating the ceremony, like a Roman soldier pounding spikes. So why involve humanity at all? I believe it is one reason he came to earth in a manger. In other words, the Great Physician operates at arm’s length through weak human beings because we are weak.
