Image of God or god?
“As we look around us, we see in our society the generally increasing humanization and leveling of the image of God. In this connection, all the emphasis falls on the love, pity, or even powerlessness of God. Increasingly people tend to filter out of their image of God notions such as wrath, punishment and judgement. That’s something I can no longer buy, says the modern theologian. I can’t picture that says the man in the street.”— Shadow Sides, pages 72-73.
