God and crying
A while ago I posted on the view of God given in one of Francis Cabrel's songs (which JB objected to me playing this morning - not for the theology, but because it was French): an impotent, sad god, come down to sit on the edge of the world, crying to see what we've made of it. Rather, this is the truth about God, crying, & what we've made of it - Boice on Gen 18.20-21, in which the Lord says, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave, I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry that has come to me. And if not, I will know." Read Boice's comments.
