“Just who is God to tell me what to do?” In a world where independence, personal rights and even rebellion are viewed as good things, what is God’s role as he relates to his creation? Watch how in By This Name, John Cross pulls from his experience with tribal people to explain how our creator is also our owner.
“Since the LORD created the angels, it was not out of place for them to be considered his possessions. And since they belonged to him, they were to do his bidding—as his servants and messengers. This was not some ancient form of servitude. There are no parallels here to forced bondage. The angels could have had no better Creator-Owner.”
