When we experience God we realize that His ways do not correspond to the ways of the world.
Earthly authorities, including Church authorities, use the carrot and stick approach to the masses.
They seek to control the masses by rewarding some behaviors and punishing others.
In the case of the Church this is the religion of heaven and hell.
But this is not God's way.
God's way is totally benevolent.
It is the way of the heart.
He cares and He helps.
And He seeks to live in relationship with humans.
He listens and He forgives.
His Love is steadfast.
And His joy is everlasting.
