From Eyes of the Heart by C V Painter: “we need to be aware of the way images of God can distort our view of ourselves and the sacred presence at the heart of the world,
such as the God who tests, judges, or punishes us;
the God who doles out answers to prayers as if in a divine vending machine;
the God who controls everything or God whom we control;
or the God who decides who is worthy of love or suffering.
We all have subtle, and not so subtle, God images that are limiting.”
