MOTU

God will not conquer evil by crushing it underfoot – any god of man’s idea could do that – but by conquest of the heart over heart, of life over death, of love over all. ~George McDonald


You often hear people wishing for some serious evil stomping from MOTU: Master of the Universe. Possibly this is because our picture of a Supreme Being has been defined in more detail by superheros than by the New Testament. If God were true to the ideas of man and Mattel, the evil we see in others but overlook in ourselves, would be stamped out, just as He-Man defeats the evil Skeletor. How could we expect less from a God with powers that exceed even the imagination of the finest graphic novelists?

Omnipotence, by definition, is limitless. God draws His own lines with the marker of grace. He certainly could crush. Instead He chooses to woo. It’s His way: conquest of the heart over heart, of life over death, of love over all.

  1. I just had to come visit your site and I really like it. I like what you said…He could choose to crush. Instead He chooses to woo. Our God is so beautiful. You did a great job of describing Him……Donna

  2. “I will put My laws within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God and they shall be My people.” Jer. 31

    Great post. We love Him because He first loved us. God bless.
