No One But God

I would be willing to bet that there have been times when we have all felt we were helpless victims at the mercy of our circumstances.  There are times when life seems to spin out of control and there appears to be nothing we can do about it.  I am glad to be able to tell you that this is not necessarily the case.

Toward a More Balanced View

As one looks around the Church today it seems there is a lot of imbalance regarding the character of God.  To a large number of people He seems to be the great Sugar Daddy in the sky that exists to fulfill their every whim and fancy.  To others He appears to be an austere Being who is constantly angry and poised with an upraised fist, just waiting for the moment He can gleefully rain down fiery judgment on sinful mankind.  Talk about extremes!  While both these pictures have an element of truth to them, it is easy to see that we need to move toward a more balanced view of the Lord.
