Brad Pitt: “I didn't understand this idea of a God who says, “You have to acknowledge me. You have to say that I'm the best, and then I'll give you eternal happiness.If you won't, then you don't get it!” It seemed to be about ego. I can't see God operating from ego, so it made no sense to me.”He walked away from a distortion of God, not from God as He really is!
Ellen White captures the essence of worshiping and serving God. Desire of Ages, 22:
The exercise of force is contrary to the principles of God's government; He desires only the service of love; and love cannot be commanded; it cannot be won by force or authority. ONLY BY LOVE IS LOVE AWAKENED. To know God is to love Him.
