20 New All Stairway

Does Your God Pout a Lot?

“But of all the possible explanations for our lack of awareness of grace, there is no possibility of Godpouting because of some insult.

If your God pouts a lot –

whether that be Jesus, or Yahweh, or the Holy Spirit – Krishna or The Universe or The Great Spirit – your Higher Power, or subatomic forces …

If you have a God who pouts a lot, I feel sorry for you – and for your god.

How petty is that?! I need a God who is bigger AND more emotionally mature than that – much bigger and much more emotionally mature, that is, than I am.

(quote from Gerald G May in “Addiction and Grace”)
