I am on a week of holidays this week and instead of the usual devotions, I am posting some interesting findings from my wanderings around the information highway.

I came across the following video regarding whether God gets disappointed when we sin. The man in the video says “yes”. The whole concept gives me a headache.

Here is the video and then the response I wrote to the blogger who put it up. What do you think?

I simply cannot get my head around the whole concept of God being disappointed. It’s like talking about God “deciding” to do something. Anger, sadness, being aggrieved, hurt, yes, but disappointment? Disappointment has to do with unmet expectations and I can’t get my head around God expecting better from me if He is omniscient. He commands better of me. It’s right up there with the origin of evil in heaven and an eternal all wise, unchanging, unchangeable Being. This doesn’t make me fatalistic. It’s the sound of one hand clapping. I just don’t go there.
