How God became so powerful and cruel?
If we presume that God exists. How he gained so much power and became such sadist that torturing people for him became as mundane as eating lunch?

We could ask the same question about so many human despots, and the answer in either case probably amounts to the same thing as each is an expression of the other.

"T'was ever thus." Gods are what we want them to be. A ferocious god will protect us from the guys on the other side of the river. They'll punish people on this side if those folks aren't doing what is required, like giving the fat fucking priests enough for "sacrifices". (Gods get the smoke, priests get what's left.)
