God is a reflection of the person who believes in God.
For people that are kind, compassionate, and considerate, the God they believe exists is kind, compassionate, and considerate.

That's why there is no guarantee that being a Christian (for example, since this is a Christian forum) makes you a good person.
Good people will be good people no matter what faith they ascribe to, and even if they have no faith at all they will still be good people.
Accordingly, bad people will till be bad people no matter what, if anything, they believe.
It's true that a person will be what they are. The recreation of Christian Reconstructionism in the 1970's by Nixon and Billy Graham, and delivered through the televangelist and funded by the rich to get voters to vote republicans making the rich richer, is just one example of how emphasizing a self-centered approach to a deity, where YOU control the deity, allows people who are judgmental and negative and racist and bigoted and homophobic to come together and pretend THEY are the only ones PERMANENTLY saved because THEY are BORN AGAIN ( a phrase used ONCE in the bible).

Those who emphasize helping the least of these, the poor, who see the rich as not entering a heaven where requirement to get there includes actions, will be more compassionate.

It shows me that Christ's teachings emphasize goodness. The born agains emphasize justification for hating, and that's a point you made really well.

Thanks.
