Only a Divine Egoist would will for us to be obedient servants of His desires.
Think of good parents…do they desire that their children grow into obedient servants? OR do they want their sons and daughters to come onto their own? Would God desire LESS for us?
Why is God so often presented as less than what we consider good parenting?
Perhaps because there was a time when good parenting meant control over offspring, regardless of age.
Perhaps because some parents feared the idea of their children doing greater things than they.
Jesus wasn’t afraid of his followers coming onto their own. Why would His Father be? “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12
