Oh My God;: What Is God?

If all Christians expressed themselves the way Rev. Desiderio does, I would not have so many misgivings about Christianity as a whole. He does not get into the whole "and if you don't believe like I believe, then pack your bags for hell" schpiel that troubles me about a lot of Christians. It always confounded me how some people can base a religion on a wonderfully enlightened and compassionate individual and then turn it into hateful diatribe, using it as an excuse to ostracize and condemn others. I for one cannot come to terms with the idea that a loving creator would give life to beings but then condemn the very same beings to eternal torment should these beings fail to acknowledge its presence. I would want nothing to do with such a terribly egotistical God. That would be like flushing your pet fish down the toilet because it fails to acknowledge you as the Supreme Feeder. If there is indeed a God, I do not believe that it needs its ego stroked. I believe it would be far above such human fallacies.

I'm watching the TV show Bones and catching up on the episodes. i just watch "The He in the She" and there was this scene which I like:

Ryan Stephenson: One of God's challenges to us is to see past the surface.
[picks up a book and tears up the dust cover]
Ryan Stephenson: To the deeper essential nature, which lies right beneath.
Special Agent Seeley Booth: You believe our bodies are like dustcovers?
Ryan Stephenson: That's exactly what I think, Agent Booth. Rip them off, and see what's underneath...
