Some say that God's power is made perfect in our weakness.
Some say that God works among the poor, the downtrodden, and the vulnerable.
Some say that God resists the proud.
Some say that the gospel is foolishness to the wise.
And so I wonder.
How do we tell the difference between (i) a God who reveals himself to the wounded and (ii) a opportunistic lie that exploits the physically, financially, and emotionally vulnerable more easily?
I'm not making any accusations, but I think that I am asking a very important question that all Christians need to answer. In the same way that a hidden God looks amazingly close to a non-existent God, one needs to be able to distinguish between a social predator (or 'psychic vampire', as some might say) and a God with a heart for the weak.
