God is not a monster – Brian Zahnd

“God is not a monster. Accusation and scapegoating, the ravages of war and the wages of sin, these are monsters. The cruel vagaries of chance—until tamed by Christ in the age to come—may fall upon us as monsters. But God is not a monster. God is love. Jesus reveals this to us. If we move against the grain of love we suffer the shards of self-inflicted suffering, but the deeper truth remains: God is love. Don’t sit in the dark with the tormenting idea that God somehow harbors malice and ill-will toward you. It’s all a cruel fiction. Turn on the light of Christ and realize that the monster god you imagined does not exist. Who exists is Jesus. And he is the one who says to you, ‘It is I, be not afraid.'” – Brian Zahnd
