A Pet God?

Don Carson on the Jews' demand for a sign when Jesus cleanses the temple in John 2:

A sign that would satisfy them, presumably some sort of miraculous display performed on demand, would have signalled the domestication of God. That sort of 'God' does powerful stunts to maintain allegiance, and that kind of allegiance is not worth having.

Reminds me of the CS Lewis line about Aslan not being a Tame Lion.
