God who is Free

Our society today likes to place God in a box. God can't do this or that or else he is evil.

We like to tell God how it is acceptable for him to be. God must decide to fit into our mold of behavior or we will not accept him.

It is humanities great pride to wish that God must fit into our mold or morality. He is the one who established morality not us.

The reality of things is that God as creator is absolutely free. One of his revealed names means "I am" or "I will be who I will be."

Absolute freedom is the nature of God. We often wish to tell God how he can or cannot run the world.

What is needed is for us to sit under God's feet and learn why he governs the world as he does. When we disagree it is us who is at fault.

Maybe we feel we are in the right, but the reality is the error is in our thinking. Our deceitful hearts and limited minds cannot comprehend the purposes of God.
