What if God is MORE than the stories we believe?

Why Doesn’t God….?

Why doesn’t God lift a finger and make it all better?  Why didn’t Jesus cure everyone in sight?

When others reach in and save us, it feels good at first. There is a certain comfort to being saved…and a certain depressing powerlessness that gnaws at us if we need too much saving.

Maybe we equate being saved with being loved. So, of course, wanting to be loved keeps us wanting to be saved. And, it follows so, that if God loves us, God must save us as often as we poor creatures need it.

Does God want to reinforce this type of behavior? Would any mature parent want grown children like this?

Maybe, Love demands that we NOT save others, but rather enable them to save themselves?

Looking forward to your comments!

  2. I like your questions at the end.
