In romantic movies there’s the classic plot of a man or a woman caught between two people. Both are desirable but in different ways. The classical storyline is the girl who’s caught in the clutches of desire for the ‘bad boy’ and the ‘good man’. The appeal of the bad boy with his devil-may-care smile, dark looks, or rebellious life. The steadfastness and dependability of the good man has his attractiveness as well. In the movies, it’s a great story to watch unfold as the heroine decides who she’ll choose.
In the spiritual realm, no one wants to be caught between two Gods. One is a God of love. The other, a God of hate. The one who hates you demands more and more from you until you feel you can’t go any further. The one who loves you seems to be so far away you can’t reach Him. When you call his name it’s as if He’s not even listening. The God of hate however shows up on time to tell you just how wrong you are, how unworthy you are and how you’ll never match up to His standards.
No one wants to be in a tug-of-war of this nature. No one.
