If God demands that you're good, are you really being good at all?


Since everything God commands is coupled with a lavish fiery nightmare it seems like all actions of believers are backed by that self centered fear?

    An excellent answer! While reading into any buddhist-like philosophies complements all religions well, I see that, that person still misses the real disconnect that buddhism makes in authority of a god and upholding virtues for yourself alone.

    You said "Ego is what gives us all of the negatives in life."

    Bold statement, but maybe you're not making a concrete correlation to Superego and Id? because plenty of evil stems from those, e.g. bad parenting, cognitive dissonance. Great answer tho

    Beautifully put, but perfection can be ours if we only ask. What makes it difficult for many people is that ego gets in the way. Humility is the antidote to ego. Faith is the cure.

    The nightmare i was referring to is Hell. It's like your father sending you to hell for not obeying his demands, or a ruler sentencing you to death for your beliefs.
