That's a very elementary way to put it.Within your fiction, your deity tortures human souls for an eternity for the "crime" of not being a Christian.
God doesn't torture you or send you to Hell, you do that yourself.
God doesn't make one a meth addict, they do that to themselves.
God made you in His image. You have the power to say yes or no.
You're blaming God. Why? Do you blame God for other things that might be negative?That's the functional distinction that decides your soul's eternal fate. This deity isn't concerned in the least with how you behaved in life. This deity judges you on the acceptance of a single belief.
Does God allow disease?
Does God allow the electric chair?
Does God allow us to tear apart our homes and families?
Does God allow war?
The answer is no, those things are caused by us, by sin.
That "culture" is still alive and well today. More so than it was back then.Justice doesn't even enter into it. This is exactly the kind of structure we would expect from the culture where this fiction was produced. They didn't know how to fabricate anything better than this.
