I was just thinking about a book I read as a teenager called This PResent Darkness. I would imagine that many of you have read those books. It may not have been in that exact title but one of those in that series, perhaps Prophet, Satan is reffered to as God's "opposite". Also the running theme of This Present Darkness was the invisible war between God's angels and Satan's demons. The deciding factor was always the prayers and faithfulness of Christians. I didn't think much of it at the time but I am beginning to realize just how much damage that idea does to the character of Christ. It totally thwarts the very Godhood of God into an interested by standard that HOPES that Christians will be faithful in the war against satan. The picture painted in those books of GOd is really no god at all. He elevates man in the the position of supreme ruler of destiny.
