A Tame Lion?




“One of C.S. Lewis’s characters in The Last Battle makes a significant observation regarding Aslan: “Is it not said in all the old stories htat He is not a Tame Lion?”  Sadly, however, many people have inadvertently domesticated God.  By allowing what we want God to be to influence what we thing he is– to predecide what God we will accept and give allegiance to– we put him on a short leash, and the idea of fearing him becomes absurd.  As someone has noted, God created humanity in his image, and humanity has been seeking to return the favor ever since! But we must not confine God to whatever we need at the moment and what we think we can understand on the spur of the moment.  We must let God be God.” -D. Brent Sandy
