You don't need to be a die hard or fundamentalist to be against the series. It undermines the very foundations of Christianity. An ex-nun
character describes Christianity as "a very powerful and convincing mistake". God is depicted as malevolent and senile, a character called
"the authority", who lies about being the creator of the universe.
The christian god is a frail and senile old man. This is not the True God, this is the god of a collective mind of adam. One who tortures 99% of
humanity for eternity because they didn't say a magic prayer. He is either too cruel or too weak to save all of his creation. Too cruel because he
created playthings knowing they'd be burned, it was his choice after all. Or Too weak to win the rebels back to himself.
The god of the pharisees was a tribal deity that was jealous, angry, demanded genocide, caused genocide, was violent, sought retribution etc…
"Sacrifice and Burnt offering I did not desire, require, ask for, and it makes me sick, you think I want your dead animals?" (my conglomeration of the
many passages from the prophets and Hebrews).
The "christian god" is very much the same as the pharisees god. I hope that god dies. That lie that the True God is a vengeful monster that wants to
come and wipe out all of humanity again, then watch them burn for eternity.
Jesus said that no man had seen the Father at any time except the son, and if you have seen him you have seen the FAther, and I and the FAther are
one. Paul said he is the exact image of the Father.
Jesus looks nothing like the god of christianity. And there is the problem. christianity is broken from its foundations, which is why they are so
easy to undermine with a piece of fiction as you warn the movie is meant to do.
What does the christian god do to enemies? he destroys them. The harbinger, left behind, ace-kicking god.
What does Jesus do to enemies? he forgives them. "Father forgive them for they know not what they do".
Jesus came to correct the humans view of The Father. Unfortunately christianity has built a golden calf.
