550 Man’s Faith in God Is Intolerably Bad

Man’s relationship with God is merely one of naked self-interest. It is a relationship between a receiver and a giver of blessings. It is akin to the relationship between employee and employer. The employee works only to receive the rewards bestowed by the employer. There is no affection in such a relationship, only transaction. There is no loving or being loved, only charity and mercy. There is no understanding, only suppressed indignation and deception. There is no intimacy, only an uncrossable chasm. Now that things have gotten to this point, who can reverse such a course? And how many people are capable of truly understanding how dire this relationship has become? When people immerse themselves in the joy of being blessed, none can imagine how embarrassing and unsightly such a relationship with God is.
