Recklessness and weakness of conscience
Let the deity be a tyrant. How people become criminals. The emergence of schisms and sects.
[1.1] In the so-called better and educated world, where especially the Christian religion is commonplace under various sectarian forms, morality is usually preached only in such a way as is politically most expedient for the rulers in either worldly or spiritual matters.
[1.2] The people are taught a gray knowledge of God, not that they should recognize and love Him, but only that they should immeasurably fear Him as the most implacable tyrant of all tyrants; and thus the Divinity is preached only as a hostage that is supposed to bear fruit when all other hostages have already become fruitless.
[1.3] Instead of the Godhead being made known to the people for the highest consolation, it is given to them only as something that has nothing to do but irrevocably condemn billions of such morally corrupt and disobedient children to the eternal sea of fire every minute.
