"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord"
Both consciously and subliminally, we men and women seek to make God in our own image. This is why the only religion safe for us, is that of faith--apart from works. My wife has a puppy she is seeking to train. I have noticed that she has to be alert to her puppy's determination to train her. We like to train God to reflect our values. Our eternal blessedness is entirely dependent on his refusal to accede to our thoughts and ways.
