"If I were God I’d have revealed myself a better way than through the Bible.”
"If I were God I wouldn’t have created a hell.”
“If I were God I wouldn’t allow suffering in the world.”
I’ve heard these statements and others like them. And I'm ashamed to say I've said similar things myself.
We need to think about what we are saying when we make these statements:
- Do we think we see the big picture like God sees it?
- Do we think God needs our advice?
- Do we really think we’d make a better God than God?
Incredibly, God forgives us despite our arrogance. If we were God, we probably wouldn't do that.copyright Gail Burton Purath, 2011
