I've been wondering whether to continue with the blog, however there's a thought rolling around in my
I've realised something. There are lots of ideas out there about what "God" is like. They can't all be right - in fact, (& I guess this ought to be obvious) if we are talking about something as infinite as "God" - none of them can be, really. I mean - nobody can possibly fit something that large into any kind of human explanation - not in its entirety, anyway. But that isn't my realisation.
WHAT IF the notion that I hold dearly, that God is Love - and vice versa - is complete nonsense? (I don't think it is but let's stay with that, for a moment, for argument's sake) What if God REALLY is a demanding, legalistic, (dare I say, small minded, petty) tyrant, who insists on rigid rules and judges minor details of our lives, with eternal consequences.... (right now I'm looking at that description and wondering how something so petty and narrow could even be called God, but anyway...)
