God doesn’t need your lies

“Like the nervous kid who tries to keep his friends from seeing his drunken father, I have tried to hide God at times.  Who do I think I am?  The truth is, God is perfect and right in all that He does.  I am a fool for thinking otherwise.  He does not need nor want me to “cover” for Him.  There’s nothing to be covered.  Everything about Him and all He does is perfect.”

Francis Chan, Erasing Hell (Colorado Springs, CO; David C. Cook, 2011) pg 133.
