We Reduce God to a Domesticated, Middle-Class Diety

I believe that most people today have lost a sense of God’s awesome size.  We reduce God to a domesticated, middle-class-sized deity that we can explain and control.

He is not.  The infinite God staggers the mind.  When we try to reduce God to someone we can explain and control, we actually cripple people’s ability to believe in Him.
