Heard (Read) it in the Bible Belt...

"The whole idea that God is a good God can be traced back to Oral Roberts. So many Christians had the view that God is waiting to get you. Oral was the one who changed that." ~ Willie George, pastor of Church on the Move in Tulsa, OK (quote published in a six page special section on Oral Roberts in the Tulsa World, Dec. 20, 2009).

Let me say with humility and due respect for Mr. George, that God revealed and established the fact that He is 'a good God' long ago (consider the book of Genesis).

Unfortunately, those who thought/think God is not 'a good God' have sadly neglected their own spiritual health by relying on others while avoiding reading and studying the Bible for themselves. Sadly, this approach is all too common among professing Christians in our day.
