There are two extreme views about God that give me a stomach ache. One makes me anxious - the "spy in the sky" God that is constantly on the watch for every misstep that I make, just waiting to fling a bolt of lightning on me for eating 2 chocolate chip cookies stuffed with cookie dough ice cream ... and then having another one.
Yep, I don't like to get caught with my hand in the cookie jar by this guy.
The second is the "pie in the sky" God who beams on us with delight and says, "It's okay. Have another. You are doing great! Sin is only sin if you think it's a sin."
I'd rather get caught red-handed by the first one given a choice between the two.The first is just a projection. I think the second one might really be satan.
God is not a spy, anyway. Spies do things secretly. God ADMITS that He sees all things and knows all things. (sigh)
Watch out for those ice creams that say "overload", "maxx", or "extreme", I think these are hints from God. He knew we weren't "getting it" so He wrote it clearly on the packages ;) Maybe He should just write:
That's even more cut and dried and doesn't allow us any wiggle room.
