10 signs your god is abusive

"God Abuse" (cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward) (Please excuse the male pronoun I used for simplicity. Actually, though, it fits with the theme.)

Here are 10 signs that your god is abusive:

  1. Do you fear him?
  2. Are you always the one who apologizes?
  3. Are you afraid of making him angry?
  4. Do you have to beg for favors?
  5. Do you feel guilty for getting angry with him?
  6. Do you despair of ever getting on his good side?
  7. Do you overcompensate by being super-good all the time?
  8. Do you feel like you deserve the pain he inflicts on you?
  9. Do you never express your negative feelings so you don't disappoint him?
  10. Are you unhappy with him but are petrified of life without him?

I have a few more questions for you:

  1. Who told you that he really isn't abusive?
  2. Who told you that you just don't understand him?
  3. Who told you that you provoke him?
  4. Who told you to be patient?
  5. Who told you that you're just hyper-sensitive?
  6. Who told you it hurts him more than it hurts you?

I have some possible answers to choose from. Was it:

  1. His best friends?
  2. His family?
  3. His employees?
  4. His hired experts?
  5. His favorites?
  6. His business?
  7. His self-published autobiography?
It's okay to ask these questions. It's okay. Relax. Take a deep breath, and ask yourself these questions. Invite truth. Welcome what is.
