Guess what? I'm not God!

Pride and arrogance, which often accompany theological discussion, are not simply the temptation of the domineering pastor or condescending professor; they are a temptation for all of us. When we speak of God, a strange enticement can occur. In subtle ways we begin to confuse ourselves with God. We think our words, our understanding, our convictions perfectly reflect God’s truth. In fact, we are not God, we have blind spots, we do not ever fully see how all things work together.—A Little Book for New Theologians, pages 46–47
