In response the original post; I see it differently. Religion hasn't taken it away, it offers us a choice. We are free to choose to follow God or not. God will love us either way, and he will give us space to make our own decisions. He isn't taking anything away from us he just doesn't want us to be robots. It has to be our choice to follow Him or there is no point in it.

Are you saying there's no punishment for not believing in god?

Would people still receive eternal life even if they don't 'follow' god?

If not, whats the point of this god?

Darkness pretends to be Light, claiming that destructive darkness will reward them with The Light of Peace.

When people worship a god jealousy, wrath, and war, it causes people who are dedicated to such a god to become scared and aggressive. It's the same reason why Aztecs did human sacrifices for their god, they believed if a pure being wasn't sacrificed then they would experience the wrath of their god (the dragon. Quetzalcoatl). Sort of like how those who call themselves christian, believe in Jesus as a pure human sacrifice.

Worshiping such negative energy, motivates negative behavior.

Yes, The True God gave free-will but there are beings who do not want people to be happy and free. The Truth sets you free, but those who do not know The Truth are scared and wish to take freedom away.

All is well.

The Eternal Light of Truth, Freedom, and Love has already won.

Now, Humanity is awakening to The Truth and giving up aggressive behavior for Peace.
