God has been much maligned.
Not only do people hold Him responsible for all the bad things that happen on earth, but His priests and ministers slander Him daily in their attempts to explain life.
God is not responsible for what happens to us.
These things are the result of human actions taken out of free will.
God is compassionate and trustworthy.
He will not let us down.
The priests and ministers of the Church have painted an image of an angry, vengeful, even violent God in their attempts to explain what happened to Jesus.
This is not revelation.
This is conjecture.
Well may we say that the blind lead the blind.
God is not waiting to punish us for our sins.
God did not punish Jesus in our stead.
God punishes no one.
He is our loving Father and He will not reject us.
