In the comments section of an earlier topic I was accused of having a:
“…theology of an impotent little god that can only wring his hands hoping some sinners might look towards what he hopes for them but cannot accomplish."
Compare this to the type of theology held by the accuser, of a God who can only obtain the glory He feels to be His due by condemning billions to an eternity in hell, for no reason other than they fulfilled the destiny He had predetermined for them.
A God who can only obtain a people by “stacking the deck” – forcing people to follow Him through exerting a mythical force known as “Irresistible grace”.
I am well and truly fed up of the pathetic “wisdom” and theologies of man – through which God is maligned and His ways perverted: all to satisfy man’s theological ego.
Do people think that God is so desperate for people to be saved that he would “wring his hands hoping some sinners might look towards what He hopes for them…” or that His need to see some saved was so strong that He would actively ensure that a specially chosen minority HAD to follow Him?
It is mans’ UNDERSTANDING of God and His gospel that is pathetic and impotent.
No, you worshipers of man’s theological “wisdom” – God is not impotent. He is not desperate. He is not a tyrant.
He is GENUINELY sovereign and has never needed any man to follow Him. Instead He has CHOSEN to demonstrate His love and His merciful nature by reaching out to mankind with the offer of an opportunity to enter a new creation.
His gospel is a result of His extravagant generosity; it is not a display of desperate need.
