When we are young we are presented with various versions of God.
The Orthodox God, the Fundamentalist God, the Protestant God, the Catholic God, the Pentecostal God, the Islamic God, the Hindu God, the Buddhist God, the Aboriginal God.....
Most of these Gods are judgemental and punitive.
But intuitively we know that God is benevolent.
So which God do we choose?
The only way to know God is through direct experience.
Once we have made contact with God we find that most of the versions of God that we have been taught are false.
God does not judge us.
God does not punish us.
God forgives us.
His mercy is infinite.
And His goodness is ubiquitous.
God is reliable.
God is trustworthy.
God is truthful.
But most of all:
God is Love.
