“The god we want shows up in comfortable non-verses that we assume are in the Bible, even though they aren’t. God helps those who help themselves. God blesses the rich so they can bless others. God won’t give you anything you can’t handle. These “verses” describe the god we want rather than the God who is. What will the real God do? He’ll put us out in the middle of a sea and tell us to walk on it. He’ll stand us before a giant with a rock and a sling. He’ll allow a tornado or cancer or a heart attack or a foreclosure or a job loss or a death to come our way. He will give us more than we can handle just to show us that only He can handle things.”
