Makes sense. Why would anyone of us need to control anyone or anything beyond our often very judgmental and always finite conclusion? Unconditional love that is infinitely loving needn’t control the very conditions that His unconditionally loving changelessness couldn’t place conditions on absent an opposing condition which would then necessarily require that God be a finitely conditioned being controlled by His very own infinite conclusion. It breaks the branch it cannot hang on. It cannot be any modicum of retributive justice and if it was retributive justice than we’d necessarily conclude our form of undulating justice is both infinite and final. It ain’t workable even from the most fervently religious belief system. Which is precisely why it’s absurd and what’s more seemingly absurd is that we’re only now waking up to such simple truth that only prideful opposition could remain angry about anyone such insanity has ever capriciously excluded. Unbelievable. That’s what makes “Christianity” unbelievable. Why? Christ never had anything to do with it.
