Default If Triangles had a God, they would give him three sides


We are children of God
made in his image

Therefore we have got to stop
this Mickey Mouse description
of our Father

If he is perfect then
it is not for us to labour
with brushes looking
to conceal these warts

the warts are perfect
every impulse is perfect
every injunction

and should there be any doubt
of the perfection of God’s character
then this is only a defect in ourselves

it may then be incumbent
upon us to ruminate
over a divinity which transcends
our lowly moral landscape

because of this, dear speaker
we don’t want to hear of his Grace
and his Glory
and his Kindness
and his Love

without also his Vengeance
and Jealousy and Destruction and
Wrath

How else… pray tell, are we to know ourselves?

the greeks gave their gods the imperfections of man. God is perfect, but we are not because it would preclude free will.
