You can hardly go around the block without running into a bumper sticker reading "God is good". Well, I suppose you could make that statement if you were as smart as God, but you're not, so you can't. When we attribute qualities to God, like being "good", we're saying that we have judged God's actions and in our wisdom concluded that God is OK with us.That can't be right.
That was the thinking, at any rate, of a monk who rejoiced in the name "Dionysius the Areopagite", or "Pseudo Denys" as we know him. Come join the congregation of Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte (and Pseudo-Denys, or what's left of him) by clicking HERE for audio or HERE for text.
Community Presbyterian Church of Bellefonte, Kentucky, was built on the casting floor of a 19th Century iron blast furnace. We use "The Casting Floor" as an image for the power of the Spirit to form us. Visit us at http://communitypresbyterian.org.
