Resenting God: Escape the Downward Spiral of Blame

In our current social climate of growing distrust and escalation of hatred and personal losses, resentment and anger are on the rise.

Resenting God offers the time-tested exit route from the lethal clutches of bitterness into a life of joyful faith and hope in a loving and gracious God. It exposes how resentment and disillusionment, leading inevitably to other destructive emotions, is a great deluder and is itself often based upon a great delusion—resentment against the Creator himself.

Snyder discusses the causes, consequences, and cures in this honest discussion about resentment against God.

He went on to explain that Christmas was one of the worst times at his home. Anger, punctuated by moments of drunkenness on the part of the rest of the family were a […] The post Christmas 2018: Emotional Footprints and Traditions appeared first on Theology Mix. […]

    “You can’t smoke, drink, go to movies, listen to rock and roll, or dance.
