Domesticating God!

I came across this Quote by a Japanese Theologian Koyama....

"Man wants to control and domesticate God. Man wants to confine God in some definite place.  He puts God in a cage, as it were, with inspiring ceremonies and praises!  God is thus 'grounded' (localized) in the temple and this arrangement gives man an opportunity to commercialize his grace.  Special 'sacred persons' are assigned to the temple to retail and distribute the 'tamed grace of God to the people.  This is the way stingy man handles a generous God! (Matthew 20:15)."

 Friends, think about it...
