Lies We Believe About God (6)

Summary of Chapter 6
The 6th 'lie' addressed by Young is that 'God wants to use me'. He recognizes that most people mean well when they say they just want to be used (as tools) by God, but he believes this sentiment paints God in utilitarian (rather than loving) colors. We don't have a relationship with our tools. We are not commodities in God's sight. We are God's children.

This short chapter makes a minor point. I doubt many of the people who use the utilitarian language described by Young fail to recognize that God is relational. But I think it's still a point worth making. No objections here.
