That certainly explains why people behave the way they do. If we see God as angry, strict, and ready to judge the slightest imperfection, that’s the way we become. If we see God as full of grace and mercy, we become more graceful and merciful. We tend to create God in our own image and imagine that He is exactly the way we are. If you have Daddy issues you’re going to have a warped perspective of your Heavenly Father. Some folks have been abused for so long they cannot imagine God as anything other than an abusive Husband or Spouse.And the church hasn’t helped – they feed into this fear and perpetuate it to protect their own power base.
What if God isn’t at all the way you’ve been taught? I wonder how many of God’s children are bound by a wrong view of God? I wonder how many are putting others into bondage with their own warped view of God? Either living in fear and guilt that they don’t measure up, or assuming they do and no one else does?
I have prayed about this for several months now and I have a real burden to shine the line of truth in this area and set some people free. Join us for these series of teachings and let’s find out what God is really like!
