If there is a God I don’t think s/he would be like the gods;
not fickle, petty, egoic nor into writing his autobiography.
I don’t think s/he would use the threat of fire to bend peoples will,
nor have all his/her thoughts written in only one book.
I don’t think God would have theologians on the payroll just to explain the divine mind, nor predestine everything Just to come across as predictable.
“Sorry God we can’t trust you unless all your T’s are crossed and I’s dotted! “
How much fun can you have with someone who is so dam inflexible that he can’t change his mind? Not much!
When children play they reverse roles so each gets to be in charge as well as follow. I think God would like someone else to lead the next dance, how about you?
This Great and Awesome God wouldn’t be a tribal deity nor be for Israel or America! God wouldn’t be hell bent on pulling strings so that his favorite team always wins.
If God is God then there would be no rival called the Devil, no dualisms, no either or but both plus more!
There would be no danger that hell would receive more souls than heaven, the mind more attention than the heart or abstinence more attention than sensuality but God would see that there is “a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”
