How we are blinded by our image of God
Show Notes

John explores how our images of God blind us to God and to each other. How did Job end up with that happy ending, and is it that happy really? Why did Job's friends not join him praying TO God, rather than trying to convince him ABOUT God? How does Bartemaeus act as an icon to the disciples blindness both to him and to what Jesus was teaching them about God?
Because October 28th is also the Day of Remembrance, when we remember the New Zealand Land Wars, John wonders how the British image of God allowed them to act as they did around their empire, and how that is still at work today.
