Written by C. S. Lewis, "God in the Dock" addresses the attitude, peculiar to humans, of wanting to do away with their Creator.
Atheists in particular want to see God dead.
Atheists in particular want to take the credit for the killing of Creator God.
Humans look at the world around them and find rising within them anger and rage and indignation that they should have to tolerate anything less than paradise. We compile our list of perceived crimes that God has committed and we stand at His gates, shaking our fists and screaming our protest. We actually feel good, even righteous in demanding that our Creator stand trial.
We are His judge.
We are His jury.
We cross-examine the Almighty and hold Him in contempt when He refuses to answer our charge.
Not only do we feel entitled to an explanation. We feel entitled to recompense.
How is it that we cannot see that we are not qualified to judge our Creator?
It’s His laws, His court.
Shall the pot say to the Potter, “Why have you made me this way?”
