If anyone wants to weigh in…

…there’s a discussion going on over at the Derek Webb discussion boards about Searching for a Better God by Wade Bradshaw. When I brought up why our images of God matter someone replied:

I hope [your view of God] has room for domination and terror, as well as love. It’s all there. We are under God’s dominion. It is right for God to dominate us. Dominus is the Latin word for “Lord” or “Master,” and what would be more appropriate for a Christian to confess than that “Jesus is Lord?”

Needless to say, I’ve been somewhat at a loss as to how to respond.
