Is God an Abusive Husband?

Are Christians taught to conduct their relationship with God too much like the relationship of an abused wife who stays with an abusing husband? No matter how much the husband dumps on the wife, she just passively submits, usually assuming there must be something wrong with her. It has to be her fault, he is a good man… at least that’s what so many people think. So she loves him, defends him, sticks with him, and continues to get beaten… who else would love her back, anyway?

I don’t think that is the kind of relationship God really wants. Be honest with God. Get angry with God. Argue with God. If you don’t air your true feelings, your relationship with God will be poisoned by bitterness.
