How Do You View God?
John McArthur tells of a student who said to his pastor, “I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t
believe in God.” The pastor replied: “Please tell me about the God you don’t believe in.”
That student began to describe a God who is vengeful, unfair, arbitrary, a cosmic ogre who delighted in watching people stumble through life in search of meaning and direction. After listening to that students’ portrayal of God, the pastor said,” I don’t believe in that God either.” It is so easy to develop a warped view of our God based on our circumstances. We can wind up with a pretty jaded view of God when we define Him by our circumstances.
