We all make the same mistake to varying degrees: we judge God’s character by what we see in people around us…
If our spouse is mean to us, it is not God’s fault. If the government treats us badly, don’t blame the Almighty. If the church, or those who move within its walls, or those who profess to be followers of Christ, appear to be terrible hypocrites-it isn’t God’s fault.
Lay the blame squarely at the feet of human nature, because that’s where it is. It’s our spouse treating us meanly: God is good. It’s the government governing badly-not the will of the Almighty. It’s the people within the church who fail to live as they speak: hypocrisy is not to be found within our perfect Creator.
God is love, God is good. God is Holy. Never forget that.
