Jane Goodall

Jane Goodall, the woman famous for her work with chimpanzees in Africa, had doubts about the existence of a God of Love (John’s Gospel) with all the evil going on in the world today.  My question: Can God get angry, or is he condemned to the same attitude for the rest of His existence?  Is there not cause for anger with a people (Christians and Jews) for whose sake He suffered and died?

Anthropomorphism is the act of attributing human qualities to an object, animal, or deity.  Your three-year-old displays it when he kicks his tricycle for overturning.  But we can’t do that with God, because as Genesis tells us, we are made in “the image and likeness of God.”  We are created that way; it is not God who is thought of as made like man.

We just might deserve what we’re getting.  I mean what about the murder, genocide, adultery, pedophilia, loose living that goes on in our cultures today?  When was the last Bing Crosby film?  Did Going My Way? die with him?
