We Get the God We Can Handle

In yesterday’s The Moment of My Christian Conversion–And How Mistaken It Left Me, I left off wondering why God chose “to reveal of himself just enough to deeply inspire people, but not so much that they would actually agree upon the beliefs inspired by that inspiration.” That’s right; that’s how I roll with my Rollerball.

Whenever I tell someone about my sudden conversion to Christianity, they very often ask me what my wife thought of the change. “Hey, man,” I often respond. “It doesn’t matter what my wife thought of it.
