I find it strange that never once in their daily conversations does this all-knowing God suggest basic empathy as a possible course of action.
“‘He who leads must also follow.’ That’s true, but I don’t have to follow a stupid leader.”
Just because I believe in something doesn’t mean I believe that it’s good.
I mean, if God wants to be cool with evil people, that’s his choice, but that’s a dealbreaker for some people. He shouldn’t hide behind Old English and metaphor. He should be upfront about that.
Christians need to be careful when talking about grace and forgiveness because they can have people thinking that God cares more about the reputation of the oppressor over the actual lives of the oppressed.
But this is a job issue and that makes it a money issue, which is precisely the type of thing I could take to the God of the prosperity gospel.
“Jesus did not, in fact, travel all the way to earth, uphill and in the sand, to give you the freedom to act like a child of Satan.”
Yes, God may love you, but if he was even remotely concerned with your happiness he wouldn’t have given grasshoppers wings.
Train up a child in the way he should go and if he grows old he will not depart from it.
I mean, aren’t y’all tired?
