I'm currnetly making a detailed outline of Miroslav Volf's book, Free of Charge: Giving and Forgiving in a Culture Stripped of Grace .
In this book, Volf puts forward the idea that "Questioning God's giving" is a sin. He then elaborates that "questioning God's giving" consists of believing that God's intentions toward humanity are not all good.
This hit home because, as many who know me will be aware, I grew up believing that God's intentions towards humanity were not oriented toward the good of humanity, but that they were oriented toward the preservation of God's own honour and righteousness. I grew up believing that God was quite prepared to hurt, torture and eternally damn anyone who failed to "honour" him properly.
It's an interesting idea that Volf thinks that such a belief about God is "sinful".
I don't want to bore for England on this subject. I do know that there are still many people who believe as I did and I hope that it's liberating to think that we are "supposed" to believe that God's intentions for us are good.
Joyfully accept all the gifts that God gives to you and then don't try to hold on to them - pass them on!
And woe to those who place before others the stumbling-block idea that God is more concerned with his own honour than he is with the good of his creatures.
