People need a correct image of God's ways.
Because many are acting wrongly in God's name.
They cannot understand what God is doing.
God does not punish us for our errors.
God does not hate or despise anyone.
God understands all His creatures and loves them unconditionally.
God does not take sides; no one is destroyed.
God does not kill.
God is trustworthy and reliable.
Christianity is not a battle against evil.
It is a gospel of love:
Love your enemies.
Love God and your neighbor.
The message of the prophets is one of social justice:
To care for the widow, the fatherless, the stranger, the homeless, and the criminal.
To treat your workers fairly and provide work for others.
Man looks at the exterior but God looks within (the heart).
Why does God leave or stop?
God leaves a space for us to grow into.
So we can put into practice what we have learned.
God does not win, conquer, or dominate.
God is with the least, the forgotten, the losers.
God comes in last place.
