using God to run from God

Peter Scazzero calls this “using God to run from God.” In the church this takes the form of using the Bible/God to justify, excuse, and even fuel our own bigotry, violence, anger, hatred, and xenophobia. Doubtless if you are looking for ways to be sick, you can find plenty of sick things in the Bible to defend your sickness. But if you are looking to step into the light, the Bible can show you the way. Just as with everything else in the world, we see the Bible not as it is, but as we are. The question is, what are you looking for?
