DO YOU EXPERIENCE TERROR?
I know. I went to Bible College and seminary twice!
I studied theology.
I won the prize for Reformed Theology.
Ya. I did that!
And do you want to know what I learned?
That a lot of theology is the attempt to explain suffering.
Of course, for me, being such a good Christian...
Suffering was an indication that something was wrong.
And also because of my theology…
Something was wrong with me!
I still remember the terror of those thoughts.
Funny… last week I was banned on Instagram for 24 hours. All I knew was that I committed some community violation. I have no idea what it was. I asked. Still no answer. I have no idea.
God was like that.
I knew I must have done something wrong, but I had no idea what it was. Still don’t.
Well… now I know that none of this is true.
What a relief!
