I just hit “submit” and my post on the Louw article went…somewhere! But not here. I’m looking for it and will try to copy and paste in order to place it in this thread.
Meanwhile, another thought I had concerning the Louw article addresses the concept of feelings of failure. Louw makes the statement that a pastoral caregiver’s or counselor’s feelings of failure “to meet the demands of human suffering” may be projected onto an omnipotent God. To that, I can only say that my prayer is that God – in God’s omnipotence, lovingkindness, and mercy – will redeem my failures, inadequacies, and weaknesses.
