From the beginning, men have loved control. The name of God has been used repeatedly to exercise this control through all manner of religious works and observances that miss the point of love.
And often we are not innocent, we love control too. We want to see others do what we do, and when they don’t – we want to play God. But how long, crooked generation, until you see that God is the one to change the heart, and not you.
