The Christlike God

The old religious image of a vindictive, angry punitive God gives way to Jesus, who cherishes all people, even sinners. Jesus does not present a God who demands but who forgives, who does not oppress but raises up, who does not wound but heals, who does not condemn but forgives. Woe then to those who wound, condemn, oppress and punish in his name. It can only be said, they do not know the God of Jesus Christ.
