Thank you, all religion matures into an authoritarian state of superiority and exclusivity for it’s own benefit and preservation. Authoritarian organizations rely on fear to coerce people into compliance. When this fear is conflated onto God his character is mocked and the big lie is strengthened. Perfect love casts out fear and viewed thru the record of Christ’s message the Gospel is good news, because it frees the captives from bondage to our fears. God’s love is universal, unconditional and everlasting. I too find it hard to imagine a God who would feel anything but pain when confronted with what we have done to the planet and to each other. Each one, individually, will finally decide what God they want, one that is strong and mighty who rules by fear or the meek and mild Jesus which the Gospel presents as representative of God.
