Musings: Speaking for God

I deeply wish people would stop presuming to speak for God and telling others "what God wants," wills, or intends.

As J.R.R. Tolkien wrote in a strong vein throughout his works, chief of which is Lord of the Rings: "Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

Summary: People are people. God is God. Not the same, people! Not even close!
