It is easy to develop a view of God that is like this police officer. Legalism encourages this view. But God does not respond to us this way: “Do what I said, or you’re gett’n it again!” This is the God of legalism. “Tithe your income or I’ll give you a flat tire!” “Surrender to the mission field or I just might kill one of your children until you surrender!” This is not the God of love. I’m glad I have been delivered from a view of God that has me at the end of a cosmic taser gun.
” Or do you despise the riches of His kindness, restraint, and patience, not recognizing that God’s kindness is intended to lead you to repentance?”
