There are some ideas about the Divine Spirit, heaven, hell and the meaning of life that just seem out of character for a being that is supposed to be total and unconditional love. Could it really be that in the Bible, God said, "you shall not kill." And then turned around and told the Jewish people to slaughter all of the people of the promised land that he swore to give them? Did God really tell the Israelites to even kill the infants of those people by smashing them against a stone? Would an all loving God burn someone alive for all eternity in a lake of fire just because that person chose, "the wrong religion?" Does God really favor some people and some religions more than others as some say? This list could go on and on, but you get the picture. Does not all this seem like man making God in his image and giving the Divine some of his less than perfect traits? What fearful or unnerving beliefs do you have about the Divine that may be man made instead of heaven sent?
