Protest Against a False View of God

ListenListen to Today’s Audio Goodie
(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)

I protest against all such teaching that gives the impression that the exceeding goodness of God towards man is not the natural and necessary outcome of His being.

The idea that God would be God all the same, as glorious as He needed to be, had He not taken upon Himself the divine toil of bringing home His wandered children, had He done nothing to seek and save the lost, is false as hell.

It will be answered that we have fallen, and God is thereby freed from any obligation, if any ever were. It is but another lie. No amount of wrong-doing in a child can ever free a parent from the divine necessity of doing all he can to deliver his child; the bond between them cannot be broken.
