What if God is MORE than the stories we believe?


A God who stepped back from Power and Control would definitely be Going Rogue.

Most people define God as the One with ALL the Power, ALL the Control.  For them, no control/no power=no God.

What if God has no interest in controlling the world or the unverse, whether we think it needs controlling or not?

What if God has the power and yet steps back from it for love of us?

What if God, like a parent who has complete power over a growing child, continuously steps back from control so that we can mature, each into our own individual personhood?

What if God has no desire to be Over and Above us–any more than mature parents desire to be over and above their children?

What do you think?

  1. I’m reminded of a story of the person who during a tumultuous time was praying to God to have Him send someone as an Avatar or Savior to assist humanity during this period in time. As the person prayed and prayed for someone to be “sent”, he felt the presence of the Holy Spirit, and the Spirit of God spoke to him and said “I did send someone, I sent you.”

    Yes I do believe God withdraws his Power, but because of his Love and his desire to reveal the character and faith of His people.
