In 1843 Karl Marx wrote that, "Religion was the opium of the people." Was it meant that the belief in gods, although not originally contrived to do so, but evolved, as a sedative to quite and to control people through this gods self appointed spokespersons, who were also representative of a government? Marx was really not the Atheist however, as he saw government, as omnipotent. The deification of a secular government, as opposed to the deification of a supernatural being.

God and religion can never be understood in a social view of justice. It should be understood only by faith alone. Without faith we are sure to misunderstand everything about God. Not just I anyone who has faith will answer the same way I did.
You have some valid points, but how is it that you are qualified to say that others misunderstand the message or intent of this god?
