“You can safely assume that you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” – Anne Lamott

This quote stopped me in my tracks! I have been guilty of this form of idolatry more often than I care to admit. I am praying that God will teach me to love more deeply so as not to turn the people that trouble me into my own private list of God’s enemies.

    Nice quote! Is this then one of the definitions of a cult? 😉

    Great quote. Reminded me of Nouwen’s quote, “It seems easier to be God than to love God.” Deep inside is the desire to be completely in charge rather than submit to the One who is. Same sin behind both quotes.
