"Someone once noted that God made us in His image, and ever since we have tried to do God a favor by making Him in our image."
It's easy to speak to others about the Jesus who cared for the poor, healed the sick, and preached love and justice for the least of these.
But what about the God who tells the Israelites to wage war and kill entire people groups? Or threatens exile and then delivers? Or sends people to hell? Can these really be the same God?
This morning we also hear from Syd Brestel, author of God In His Own Image: Loving God for Who He Is... Not Who We Want Him to Be.
