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.

  • Can We Be Friends with God?
    by John I. Snyder on November 9, 2018 at 6:00 pm

    God offers us his friendship. How amazing is that?

To him, God is “Almighty,” not “All-matey.” God in all his majesty, glory, power, purity, and […] The post Can We Be Friends with God? appeared first on Theology Mix. […]
