What makes the scene hilarious is that we all know quite instinctively that love cannot be forced, and the irony in Sheldon’s statement is lost to him.
All of this came to mind as I was plugging away at Thomas Jay Oords book, The Nature of Love: A Theology. But well thought-out deterministic theologies have well articulated answers to that question.
In order for a loving relationship to exist between God and humans, reciprocation must be genuine. For me, there is a logical inconsistency between holding to meticulous sovereignty on the one hand and love on the other. Remember the scene when Jim Carrey (aka God) tried to muster every bit of strength he could to force his girlfriend (Jennifer Aniston), to love him? Love has to be freely given and received in order for it to retain any degree of authenticity.
It’s not the most wholesome show on TV, what with all of the innuendos and all, but aside from its humor, it is also educational in a “social science” sort of way.
In it Oord explores the history of a theology of love and one of the influential characters he looks at is Augustine. I don’t think this is possible in a theological construct that sees God as all-determining.  The difference between God and Sheldon Cooper in this scenario is that God, who has the power to make the bird come back to him, gives it a love potion so that it will desire to love Him. I reviewed it a couple of months ago and found it to be very helpful and full of creativity. Quickly realizing that it was impossible to do, he looked upwards and made the statement, “Yeah, I know. In one episode he’s freaked out by a Blue Jay that takes up residence on the windowsill of his apartment.


The same irony is explored there too when Elmyra “chases” and finally “catches” an animal and exclaims, “I’m going to love you and kiss you and hold you forever”. Augustine’s theology of love is distorted by his theology of God, a theology that has heavily influenced Western Christian thought. So what God does is give some people the desire to love him, thus they love him on their own accord, yet it is because God gave them the desire to do so. Genuine loves and genuine relationships can’t exist in a theology of God that sees all things as determined.
When the bird is accidentally let into the apartment through the window Sheldon is convinced by his friends that it is harmless. How can a theology of love really exist when ones theology of God is that He determines all things?
But this explanation, as well articulated as it can get, only seems to push back the inevitable.
But just as Sheldon finally warms up to the bird and begins making plans for a long future together, it up and escapes through the open window. She may then fall in love with you, but it is against her will and thus the “love” is disingenuous.
Establishing a relationship with God is no more complicated than establishing a relationship with a friend.
Contrary to what you may of read or heard, God does not require you to do any “heavy lifting”, there are no steps to follow, tests to take or even any rituals you have to perform for Him. All God wants you to do is hear (or read) the Gospel (“Good News”) and just BELIEVE.The power of hearing and believing the Gospel leads to salvation, for everyone who believes. Jesus says in John 6:35 (see below) that if you come to Him you will never “hunger” for anything and if you BELIEVE you will never “thirst” (have desires that are not met).


My life is void of any happiness or peace and no matter how often I pray or try to change things, nothing seems to change for me. Friend, you are not experiencing the “fullness of God” because of your effort or anything you are not doing. If you have children then you can try to imagine taking their life as God did for you (us) with His Son, Jesus Christ. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’God, the Creator of the Universe specifically tells you not to be afraid that He is always with you. He freely provides you strength and wisdom to get through anything that life throws at you each and every day.
God has awesome plans for you, He promises to protect you and wants you to know your future is bright. Grace is God’s undeserved and unmerited favor poured out for you by His son Jesus Christ at the Cross. It’s available to all who have faith and believe.Bible Verse Of The Day – A Psalm of David –An All-encompassing Bible Verse Of The Day-If you ever wondered what the heart of our God is like, Psalm 23 beautifully depicts the True God.
No matter how many times I read this passage, it always “stirs” the Holy Spirit who dwells in me (and you) and makes me feel how blessed and loved I am. I’m having some issues and feeling forgotten by my God who loves and care for me, I was inspired by the song.
