Never will I leave you or forsake you. I suppose pretty much every Christians knows that line. Or something like it, depending on which translation you read. It’s from God.

Loving in ways that we can’t even understand. But yes, God is also angry. Can you really blame Him? Look what we do to each other. What we do to Him. And what we’ve done to pretty much every part of His creation that we can reach! Who wouldn’t be angry? Why do we wish for a loving God, but expect an angry God?

You think the door opening is over. But probably not. …
