Commonplace Book

Feeling like God is far away, disinterested, or dead to you is part of our Bible and can’t be brushed aside–and that feeling–no matter how intense it may be, and even offensive as it may seem–is never judged, shamed or criticized by God. Worshipping other gods or acting unjustly toward others gets criticized about every three sentences, but not this honest talk of feeling abandoned by God.

–Peter Enns, The Sin of Certainty
